Ollee is a variation of Ollie, but he is not an Oliver (unless he wants to be called that later in life)

I was trying to convince his mother Amy to go for my made up Irish spelling of 'Oléigh', however, Amy preferred the spelling of Ollee

Ollee is also a celtic word, from the Isle of Man (ironic that!) and it means 'cattle' which is suitable as he was born the Chinese year of the Ox. 

His middle name 'Barton' in memory of his great grandfather Charles Barton Mann (1909) who was born exactly 100 years before Ollee. The Barton Mann name became a tradition following the marriage of Elizabeth Barton (1938) and Thomas Mann (1822), who are Ollee's great great great grandparents.
