Thanks! I was beginning to think Kate was wrong [in listing it under trade names]. I have seen some other definitions of the name- "by the holly tree"- but none of them were occupations. Perhaps it was just a nickname for a brothel keeper, but it's true etymology is mundane :-(

I was just curious, because whatever the occupation, I am the true one. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't a True rentboy or anything.

Ironic [I think].
