Which of these do you prefer? Of are there any other similar names?

I love Lola but I'm biased, mine is 4. I like Lila and Leila too. I also have a Lana just to add that.

I absolutely love the Kinks song Lola about the transvestite - the lyrics are great - but I couldn't use the name because of it!
Love the other two

I like Lola best smile

Is she going to be a showgirl?

I love Lola!

I like Lila best I think, though I think it looks prettier as Lilah. Layla is ok, but really not keen on Lola (it just makes me think of Lola in eastenders!)

How about the Persian name Laleh? Pronounced as Lahley and means tulip. I know a Laleh & she is so cheerful & lovely so a good alternative to Layla.

Layla is a very popular Arabic name in the muslim community & it means dark as the night.

They are all very popular now. They will date. However I still like Layla and lilya is also lovely.

PS as a child I cound not pronounce the letter L. Those names are my idea of hell grin

ShepherdsSpy Fri 01-Mar-13 09:23:51

Sorry, I think they are all very dated. Lily, at least it's a real name to my ears

The rest old sound made up - sorry.

Willow36 Fri 01-Mar-13 09:23:13

Lila, its very pretty.

My friend has a Leila pronounce Leela, its very pretty. I love Lila too, its Kate Moss' daughters name. lola reminds me if Lolita, sorry :-s

To be honest, none of them are my cup of tea - they are all quite "now". I know lots of little Lilas and for me, they all just sound a bit the same. But that's just my taste....

All three names beautiful!

You can definitely use it OP! It's by far the nicest of the three, and unusual too.

ThoseArentSpiritFingers Thu 28-Feb-13 20:31:23

I like lillia, but I have a cousing with the same name so can't really use it. If I'm honest Lila is my favourite, but I used to babysit for a girl of the same name a few years back, is it still ok to use the name despite this?

forgetmenots Thu 28-Feb-13 20:19:55

These aren't my cup of tea (I'm like this with a lot of popular names though). I'd prefer Lily, Isla or even Olivia nn Livia?

Out of the three though, Lila definitely, then Layla, then Lola which I really don't like (sorry)

HavingALittleFaithBaby Thu 28-Feb-13 20:18:58

Lola will always make me think of the song about the transvestite of the same name (sorry).
Lila and Layla are both pretty.

Locketjuice Thu 28-Feb-13 19:31:33

But lyla if I had to pick a name for mine, also Isla sounds really similar

Locketjuice Thu 28-Feb-13 19:30:40

Love them all smile

BeeBopDingALing Thu 28-Feb-13 19:25:53

Like Lila & Lola. Not keen on Layla. I don't like this word, but the Laylas I have met are a bit chavvy <Sorry can't think of another word>.

Ginebra Thu 28-Feb-13 19:17:59

i think thjose names sound a bit dated already. they were popular 2000-2005.

I did consider Leila very seriously in 2002 though. Beautiful name. But glad I didn't go with it.

cantfindadecentusername Thu 28-Feb-13 19:15:48

What about Delilah and use Lila has a nickname. Love Delilah.

Toptack Thu 28-Feb-13 19:07:23

The last three baby girls to be born that I know were called Lola, Lila and Layla! Nice names but am suspicious they are about to become v popular.
