    I think Ollie would be the most common way people would think of when they hear the name, any other spelling and he might end up having to actually spell out his name for everyone because of them using the spelling of Ollie as an assumption of the name.

    My son is Oliver but we call him Ollie. However everybody seems to spell it differently and a few of my friends address things to him with Oli oir Olly on it. I guess its just what you prefer.

    hi ya ie endings on names are meant to be girly y is usually for a boys name. i dont think it really matters tho with olly ollie. i have friends with it spelt both ways so its personal choice really i do prefere olly tho.

    also i think the spelling olly would look good for a child or an adult, were as ollie looks like it would suit a child more than an adult.

    My son's called Oliver & we shorten it sometimes, but have never written it down, so don't think we've thought about how to spell it. We have a friend who's Olivier & shortens it to Oli which I like, (& easy for my husband to remember)!!
