Betsy and Lila

Is Lila to faddy? I think it sounds quite pretty but wonder if people would struggle with getting it right, lee-la, Laila, Lil-a instead of Lie-la

And Betsy- I never use to look but all of a sudden find it quite nice, hubby thinks it sounds like a dogs name.

Our dog is called Betsy blush (border terrier)

Lila is nicer, DD has one in her class who's a very sweet wee girl!

Lila. Very sweet. Betsy ok but slight old lady connotations.

I like both. I'm surprised Lila isn't more popular while names like Lily and Isla are everywhere.

Lila is lovely, I would pronounce it lie-la as you would.

Betty is just a nickname for Elizabeth.

Sorry *Betsy

I don't like Betsy at all.

Lila is nice but I thought it was Lee-la. If you want an unambiguous Lie-la, I'd spell it Lyla.

Lila is great. Some people will pronounce it Leela, who cares, just correct them and they'll remember next time.

Lila is a gorgeous name. I would assume it''s pronounced 'lie-la' too. If you put an 'h' on the end - Lilah - would that help to hammer home the correct way to say it, do you think?

Betsy is quite pretty, but maybe a little nicknamey and cutesy?

I like both. Lila is on my girls list.
Not as keen on Betsy - I can't imagine being an adult called Betsy... Cute for a little girl though.

Lila is on my list, but probably would spell it Lyla
