Please, please, if you live in an English-speaking country, do NOT name your child this, as it's recognizable as a synonym for the word "lies", as in fibs. That would not really be a good way to grow up, would it? I personally much prefer "Liesel".

I don't think you mean synonym.

For some reason I think somebody with the name Lies might lie a lot.

Anne Frank had a friend called Hanneli "Lies" Gosslar.

This name isn't flattering and should stay in Germany and the Netherlands. Someone named Lies will be bullied in an English-speaking state. Why not Liesel/Liesl instead? That's much prettier.

The pronunciation makes it sound nice. Too bad English-speakers couldn't pull it off.

Not keen on the spelling. Lies is a word and if you're from an English speaking country, I highly advise you not use this name, or at least this spelling.

"All Lies tells is Lies, Lies, and more Lies!"
Nope. Not really good for an English speaker. Just use Liese (with an E!) or Liesel.

Parent "Lies, why did you not tell your friend Betty the truth"

Lies "My name makes me think lying is ok"

Parent "Lying is not ok"

Lies "Then don't name me Lies"

Parent sighs, thinking "Why am I an English speaker naming my child Lies"
Maybe nice in Europe but in the English speaking world, do not ever name anything this.

In my opinion this name sounds quite adorable, but probably not to the sound of an English speaker because of the not very good word 'Lies'. I understand that, but to the person says it may sound good in Europe is true, but there are English speaking countries in Europe that will have the same reaction to Lies as Americans, Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders would have. I am not an expert of this because English is not my native tongue, but I do try my best!

I'd change the spelling to Lees if I wanted to use it.

Y'all know this is a diminutive (as in not a full name) and it's only going to be used by German speakers, right?
