Already have a Lily, now need help from the good people of mumsnet choosing a name for her brother/sister!

I don't want another flower name, or anything that rhymes with Lily i.e Tilly or Billy. But apart from that am open minded!

Names I like:



Thanks guys smile

Delilah would be nice for a girl, Oscar for a boy.

Like all your ideas as well, not sure about lyra with lilly though, saying them both quickly together sounds a bit like a tongue twister.

Olivia or Oliver/Isaac

Quasilulu Sat 07-May-16 01:43:51

Annie and Isaac would be my pick.

AGnu Sat 07-May-16 01:47:31

Milo or Miles?

Flowerpower14 Sat 07-May-16 07:09:48

I think Oliva and Henry. X

I wouldn't chose Olivia. - Lily and Livy

Charlotte might turn into Lottie so you might have a Lily and Lottie - would that be ok with you? I think it's quite sweet.

I would pick Annie but have Annabel/Annabella as a longer version, something for her to grow into and she may want to be called Anna or Belle more then Annie when she knows her own mind. I love Harry and Oliver from your boys list. Both would go very nicely I think. All great names I think smile

Frances or Oliver

There's something about how the stress falls that makes Oliver sound better than Olivia with Lily.

Love Francesca and Annabelle!
Also love love love James, but it's my DB's name.....
Good point about Lottie/Livy/Lyra, I hadn't thought of that.

Thank you all, have some chocolate: chocolate

hurtdaughter1234 Sat 07-May-16 09:57:27

Also love Oscar smile

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 07-May-16 10:42:37

Oscar is nice.

Lily and Oliver are fine. But Lily and Ollie are quite similar and a bit of a tongue twister.

You obviously like the letter L OP.

Dylan? A bit lil n dyl though.

Finn. Freddie. Alfie

WhiffyBiffer Sat 07-May-16 10:52:02

Lily and Freddie has a nice ring to it....

GottaGetThisDone Sat 07-May-16 17:48:18

I know a Lily with a db Freddie

Lily and James is too Harry Potter for me but i know not everyone gets the connection


lasermum Sat 07-May-16 19:43:48

Lily and Freddie are twins on the Archers (goes away to lurk back on the Archers threads..............)

MNetter15 Sat 07-May-16 20:09:49

I love all your names!

What about Lily and Sophia,
Lily and Ella
Lily and Jane


Borntobeamum Sat 07-May-16 20:13:50

Could have a Lily and James if you're a Harry Potter fan smile

mrsschu Sat 07-May-16 22:14:57

I know siblings Lily and Conrad, and Lily and Josephine.

WhyCantIuseTheNameIWant Sun 08-May-16 15:31:19

Not Dylan!

Lili and dyl always get muddled.

Oscar and Annie.

CremeEggThief Sun 08-May-16 15:34:50

Frankie would be a nice nickname for Frances or Francesca.
Oscar or Isaac are your boys' names that go best with Lily, IMO.

ShmooBooMoo Mon 09-May-16 12:00:25

Without seeing your list, my first instinct was Lily and Laura (overdue a comeback!)

Lily and Frances is nice is you think you'll be able to stop it being shortened to Fran.
Francesca is beautiful but presents the same problem.
Not too fussed on your other four choices.
My favourite girls' name right now is Genevieve (Jenna-Veev). Has potential for Evie as a nickname. It's a beautiful old-fashioned name that still manages to sound current and is not often heard. It complements Lily too, I think.
I also love Sylvie. Lily and Sylvie sound pretty together.

ShmooBooMoo Mon 09-May-16 12:12:40

For boys, Henry is good. There are going to be a squillion Georges so I'd avoid. I think Michael would be nice alongside Lily. In fact, Michael Henry is really nice.
Lily and William has a nice ring to it, though Lil and Will, Lilly/ Willy potential? Lily and William/ Will sounds good though...
Lily and Lucas Henry?
Lily and Sean Oliver?
Lily and Jude Francis?
