Not pregnant right now but do you think this works in the UK?

Means Princess in Amharic (I am an Ethiopian Christian).

Not good.

Yes, sounds like a tampon to me too I'm afraid.

MrsOzz Thu 01-Sep-11 10:41:33

Could try Lolita instead?

Although that also has some slightly unsavory connections...

midnightexpress Thu 01-Sep-11 10:46:30

slightly unsavoury??? grin.

Don't think it works well in English, sorry. Even aside from the tampon issue, it just looks odd somehow.

What about Leila?

HollyGoHeavily Thu 01-Sep-11 10:55:24

Sorry, but it doesn't sound right to my British ears. It is too much like 'Lilet' which is one of the leading brand of tampons.

I wouldn't go for Lolita either as it will never shake off the highly dodgy and unpleasant novel.

If you like names beginning with 'L' how about Lilia, Lilian, Lorelei, Layla?

Tampon. Definitely tampon.

birdofthenorth Thu 01-Sep-11 12:59:45

Tampon. First thought. Sorry.

Would be spelt wrong a lot in the UK too.

What about Lilith?

Saggyoldclothcatpuss Fri 02-Sep-11 01:45:57

EEW! Do you know who Lilith was Fleur? grin

How about just nice simple Lily?

MrsRhettButler Fri 02-Sep-11 01:51:39

How is it pronounced? Ly - lit?

FleurTing Fri 02-Sep-11 17:24:04

You`re right Saggy, Lilith doesn`t have very good connotations for those who know (blush) but it`s a name I`ve always liked ! I`ve come across it in novels a few times...

My first thought would be Violet with a speech impediment. My second would be tampons - sorry.

Why Eww for Lilith? I know two people who named their DDs Lilith after the pre-Eve or whoever she was. Why is that Eww?

MollieO Sat 03-Sep-11 21:33:17

The only Lilith I've heard of was the mad ex-wife in Frasier/Cheers! Not a name I'd choose.

Lielit I'd assume was a misspelt tampon.

how is it pronounced?

i know a Lilith, that's a lovely name

FairyArmadillo Sat 03-Sep-11 23:00:20

Unfortunately it does sound too much like Lilets- the tampons.
