Have a need? Contact Carolyn Holland…



            This post will cause some people to say I have too much time on my hands. Not so…but sometimes it’s just interesting to take a break and research something that is off the wall.

Needing a break, I decided to research my name, Carolyn Holland. Yes, there are many of us, and our talents are as varied as our locations.

But first, what about the name Carolyn?

It’s English meaning is joy, song of happiness, and feminine manly. Its American meaning is Strong. An Italian feminine form of Charles.

People with this name have a deep inner need for quiet, and a desire to understand and analyze the world they live in, and to learn the deeper truths…Its Expression Number is 7…they are excellent at analyzing, understanding, and learning. They tend to be mystics, philosophers, scholars, and teachers. Because they live so much in the mind, they tend to be quiet and introspective, and are usually introverts. When presented with issues, they will see the larger picture. Their solitary thoughtfulness and analysis of people and world events may make them seem aloof, and sometimes even melancholy.1

Holland is a toponomical surname indicative of originating in the Dutch region of Holland, the Netherlands, or the English region of Holland, Lincolnshire. It ‘s also an Anglicized version of Ó hUallacháin (or Houlihan or Holohan) and is a common surname on the Beara Peninsula in southwestern County Cork, Ireland. It is also found in places where Beara immigrants settled, such as Butte, Montana and southeastern Massachusetts.2
