What is this shrub? (pic included)

WizOfOz(7)May 22, 2014

Does anyone know the name of this plant? My husband and I like to name plants as we drive by (geeks, we know)and we've seen this one a few different places but can't figure it out despite our best googling efforts. So, I'm turning to Old Faithful...GardenWeb!

Here's the details:
Found in Zone 7b (Alabama)
Full sun
Height: ~6 feet
Width: ~4 feet
Red berries

My guess is some sort of holly.

Thanks in advance GWers!

Looks like Burford holly from this distance. Could even be an older and limbed up 'Dwarf Burford'. Could also possibly be 'Needlepoint' which tends to grow faster and taller than Dwarf Burf.

In any case most likely an Ilex cornuta variety.
