This was my Grandmother's name and I love it! But some people have made comments about it being too flowery/outdated. Other names we're considering are Madeleine,Isobel, Jessica and Catherine/Katherine?

I like Lilia. Lila is too close to Lilo for my liking! Also like Lilian and Lilith (although the associations for the latter aren't too pleasant!).

Lilia Catherine would be rather nice.

Yes I thought of Lilo too!

How about Lily?

Lila is lovely.

a friend of mine wants it for her baby if it's a girl (also a grandmother's name!)

isn't Kate Moss's little girl called Lila?

doesn't make me think of lilo because it's pronounced Lilla rather than Lyla isn't it??

makes me think of Lilo Lil from bread grin

I prefer Lillia but Lila is quite nice too.
I didn't think it was outdated - Kate Moss's daughter is Lila Grace.
Didn't know it was pronounced Lilla though?? confused

Lila is usually pronounced Lyla. I think it's ok but I much prefer Lily.

BibiBelle Mon 20-Dec-10 22:21:49

what about Lillith or Lillian?

ahh well the only one I know of (friend's grandmother) is pronounced Lilla

but clearly she is an anomaly grin

I dont think its outdated at all i thought it was quite popular these days. I know a baby lila and heard of a few others, and never crossed my mind that it was out dated. I think its really nice

Very trendy, not out-dated at all.

I think it's nice. I like Leila as well, though you may get all kinds of different pronunciations (Lee-la, Lay-la, Ly-la etc!)

I totally agree with Ephiny. How would you be pronouncing it? You would be safer with Leila, or Layla, but if it is a family name then dont mess, keep as is x
