What do you think of Lilian or Lillian shortened to Lily?

itsMYmummy Sat 09-Aug-08 22:11:25

V pretty but also quite popular.

princessglitter Sat 09-Aug-08 22:14:25

I though Lilian might distinguish her from all the other Lilys, but we could use Lily as a shortened form.

I think if you want to call her Lily then there is no point calling her Lilian.

When will she be called Lilian?

Hadassah Sat 09-Aug-08 22:19:48

Lilian is very nice.

Love it. Lilian. sound great. And, when she is a teenager, she can chose whether she is Lily or lilian.

Im sorry dont like lilian at all, like lilly though,

princessglitter Sat 09-Aug-08 22:25:15

When she is a doctor she can be Dr Lilian wink but I think Lily is cute on a little girl.

Reminds me of someone I worked with years ago...she was Russian(I think)and sat making a meal from her nostils! <spit, spit, spit>

What about Lily-Anne?

One of my aunts is Lillian, but has never been called by that. She hates it.

princessglitter Sun 10-Aug-08 13:47:17

Ah, well I already have a Lily-Rose but am thinking of changing it to Lilian Rose as am worried her name is too popular. Don't really want a hyphen name again, I regret giving her a hyphen name. The alternative is to keep her name as it is, but ditch the hyphen.

MonkeyMargot Sun 10-Aug-08 13:48:12

I like Lillian. She happens to be a very feisty (older) character in the Archers.

solo Sun 10-Aug-08 13:49:53

Lily-Rose is beautiful, don't change it

there's also Lilius which I've always liked.
