A Guide To Internet People Named Molly

MOLLY MOLLY MOLLY GET YOUR MOLLIES HERESurprisingly regularly, I am asked to explain "Which Molly Is Which?" This is true because there was a huge uptick in girls being named "Molly," which began in the late 60s and peaked in the late 80s. (Thanks, Ms. Ringwald; the name has shown staying power through the present day). So here, for once and for all I will tell you about the Three People Named Molly You Most Regularly Meet on The Internet.



THIS IS MOLLY LAMBERTMolly Lambert, AKA Molly Lambert
This Molly has a Tumblr but does not Twitter and is one of the proprietors of charming smart website This Recording, a publication about culture that is very conceptual in nature. She is based in L.A.

THIS IS MOLLY YOUNG!Molly Young, AKA Magic Molly
This Molly, who has a Tumblr and a Twitter, was just profiled in Paper. This Molly is in New York, and has a piece in the new issue of n+1.

THIS IS MOLLY MCALEERMolly McAleer, AKA Molls
This Molly has a Tumblr and a Twitter. This Molly worked for Defamer for some time, departing in October, 2008. This Molly is also based in L.A., and this Molly wrote the amazing/horrifying Bedbugs Of Los Angeles story for us.

Other People Named Molly
Oddly we don't really know the Molly Holzschlag behind Molly.com! She writes about CSS a lot and does some consulting. We're sure she's nice too. Neither do we know the seemingly charming Molly Wright Steenson, who is at Princeton. Both of these Molly's have been online for forever.

What would happen if these people named Molly all got together and started a Molly Association? I do not know but it frightens me.

Mollifying.

Slacker Molly = Molly-Gagger?

Bittersweet (#765)

Molly obsessed with her dad = Molly-pop?

An article written by Molly unfairly attacking the subject = Molly Hatchetjob.

Do not forget Molly Wood and her Rants:

choire: it boggles the mind that you haven't met molly steenson, since she knows almost everyone and you've been on teh internets as long as i have. she's in town fairly frequently, so can we rectify this over tasty alcoholic beverages?

And then there is Molly Williamson, of El Paso Texas.

El Matardillo (#586)

I'm still waiting for your retrospective on people named Aubrey.

Kevin (#2,559)

What about Molly-coddle?

esquared (#888)

good golly miss molly
(that's the way i prefer those mollies — lambert, young, mcaleer)

Ok, so "Molls" is the one with the picture that reminds me of the "Elaine's Christmas card" episode of Seinfeld?

Got it.

Thank you for the Moll-service. So so many Mollses to choose from!

The "servicey" tag is glaring in it's absence.

Mollyfest 2010: Radisson Hotel, Long Beach, CA, June 2-4.

Good name for a dog or fish.
Not so much for a cat or bird.

TroutSavant (#1,990)

This is true, but I have no idea why.

HiredGoons (#603)

Ringwald or bust.

I'm getting a little tired of all this … this …

Oh, what's the word I'm thinking of? It means coddling people named Molly. Whatever that word is … I'm tired of that.

gumplr (#66)

yes, yes… do go on…

We know that's you, emily.

deepomega (#1,720)

Scientific evidence that Mollys are cute.

skybarn (#304)

These are the Daves I know I know, These are the Daves I know.

Ribs (#2,690)

Skybarn is my favorite no-cost publication

cinetrix (#47)

Love Magic Molly.

Question for The Olds: Does she remind anyone else of Chicha, except more productive [no offense, Nathalie]? Is it some Californian/Brown thing?

oatsmoats (#310)

I'm guessing Adriane on Magic Molly is the analogue of Ashley Parker on Eric Lesser.

Ribs (#2,690)

Is this another ad for Molls?? I already follow her, what else do you want from me??
