Not short for Delilah. Really grown on me but still curious of other people's opinions. Any nice middle names to go with it would also be helpful.smile

Lovely name. Becoming a bit popular now, but not overly so, I think.

I would pronounce it Lie-luh.

Lilah Rose (yes I know Rose is very common, but it just sounds nice)
Lilah Grace (" ")
Lilah Miriam
Lilah Madeleine
Lilah Mary
Lilah Ruth
Lilah Sophie
Lilah Harriet
Lilah Juliet

Very pretty. Makes me think of lilac, so Rose goes v well.
Also like Lilah Cerise as a left field choice.

MephistoMarley Thu 11-Aug-16 06:15:55

Kind of blah, sorry

One of my good friends way back in the mists of time was called Lilah. She pronounced it lil-ah. It's a lovely name.

mollie123 Thu 11-Aug-16 06:55:42

why not Leila or Leyla/Layla - long established names.

Makes me think of that dreadful Oasis song I'm afraid.

lalalemon Thu 11-Aug-16 07:06:55

I would imagine you'd be spelling it out forever. Lyla would be the more common spelling!

SteviebunsBottrittrundle Thu 11-Aug-16 08:12:57

I'm not keen sorry. I don't know anyone called Lilah actually, but it does sound a bit 'blah' to my ear because I know at least two each (children and adults) of the following:

Lily, Lola, Layla, Lyra, Lara, Leah

MuffyTheUmpireSlayer Thu 11-Aug-16 08:13:45

I like it!

RickOShay Thu 11-Aug-16 08:15:12

Much prefer Lily or Delilah. Just doesn't sound right.

Enb76 Thu 11-Aug-16 08:15:32

I like it. I have a friend called Lilah. She was named after her very old family English grandmother so it's hardly an out there choice.

junebirthdaygirl Thu 11-Aug-16 08:22:22

Friend called this spells it Lileah. She is in her 60s so popular then. Hadn't heard it for years but on the way back like Iris and Mabel. Be careful that it is not going to pop up everywhere all of a sudden like Lily did a while back.
Lileah Anne
Lileah Jean/Jane
Think one syllable names are best to go with it.

Sophronia Thu 11-Aug-16 12:21:11

I like it but spelled Lila, the h on the end looks unnecessary.

Kit30 Thu 11-Aug-16 12:25:34

Neither for or against but it's everywhere. Sorry - it's the hipster name of choice for girls. Can't move for hipster dads in a certain S. Manc suburb and their baby Lyla/Lila/ Layla/Layli

I was going to call my 10 year old DS Lila if he was a girl, it now turns out that there's one in his class along with Lily, Lacey and Laura. Still like it but called my 2 dds Anya & Layla! There are also lots of Laylas but only met 2 other Anyas.

Sorry but sounds trashy to me. A bit like misty or missy type names for girls.

Go with a proper name
Laila
Layla
Delilah

Pemba Mon 15-Aug-16 04:19:56

'Course it's a proper name. Layla, on the other hand sounds a bit stripper-y, at least spelt that way.

NerrSnerr Mon 15-Aug-16 05:05:16

I prefer it spelled Lila.
