She's little, always so happy. Has dark hair, but will probably get lighter. We nickname her Bean (when we didn't know her sex, but still sticks) and Lily (it was my mum's favourite flower and it kind of just stuck) so she often gets Lily Bean grin but my husband really doesn't want Lily as her first name, so I completely respect that, so that won't be her name. She looks like a little fairy really! Any ideas on names that suit that description, lol!? I really want her to have a name, as people don't know what to call her!

Post a pic!! Can she have lily for a middle name?

Sophia12 Sun 06-Nov-16 18:13:06

Oh I didn't know you could do that! Hang on smile

Yes, I think we may be considering Lily as a middle name!

OhTheRoses Sun 06-Nov-16 18:15:46

Well if she's like a fairy, Titania, queen of the fairies. Tania?

FrizzyNoodles Sun 06-Nov-16 18:17:37

What sort of names do you both like? Maybe another nature/flower name or do you like classic names or is maybe pick a name that has a meaning that you like for example Theodora means gift. That sounds quite sweet with lily too

What about lilian or lilianne?

My daughters middle name is Lily after my mum, a very pretty name! I think it goes well with nature related names which would fit nicely with fairy names too:
Flora
Posy
Blossom
Primrose
Willow

I like those suggestions thanks! I'm probably being really blind but I cannot see where you upload a pic sad so I have put it on picpaste here picpaste.com/pics/14958460_1331299636889677_1718767857_n-FizZK5Hh.1478456405.jpg

We are from America so there are a lot of girls with lynn names, so I would like to stay away from those.

Sophia Lily

FrizzyNoodles Sun 06-Nov-16 18:26:06

Aww her little tongue sticking out!!!

Kim82 Sun 06-Nov-16 18:27:28

Aww, she's a cutie. I think she looks like an Erin.

neonrainbow Sun 06-Nov-16 18:30:56

Carys/cerys? Beautiful girl smile

RedLemonade Sun 06-Nov-16 18:36:26

Might not go with Lily but I'd say she's a Rosie. She has such a cute little elfin face!

SausageSoda Sun 06-Nov-16 18:38:11

She's beautiful - congrats star

Sylvie means from the forest/woods which is quite fairy like.

Ella can mean beautiful fairy woman but it's a v popular name.

JolieColombe Sun 06-Nov-16 18:38:20

This may be twee but Gillian? Then you get Gilly-bean (with a soft 'g', like Jilly, not a hard one). Could be too similar to Lily though.

RedLemonade Sun 06-Nov-16 18:38:32

Also just in case you have any Irish links, the Irish name Siofra ("sheefra") means fairy.

WottyMcWottFace Sun 06-Nov-16 18:41:45

Awe isn't she beautiful! Congratulations flowers
I love that you call her lily bean 💗

But if you wanted lily as a middle name call her Beanie it could be a pet name for Beatrice or Robina if you wanted something more formal.

Sophia12 Sun 06-Nov-16 18:45:09

Thank youu smile

I like these suggestions too!

WottyMcWottFace Sun 06-Nov-16 18:49:07

There was another thread with a lady looking for fairy names, there were some lovely ones on there. Will try to find it. smile

Mooey89 Sun 06-Nov-16 18:53:44

Beatrix, Bea for short? Almost bean!!!
