This name was very common in the Republic of Moldova. It is seen as a bit dated now, it's a name you hear a lot on women over the age of 40. It is still being used, but not very common, among the younger generations. Liliana and Lili are also in use, but much less common than Lilia.

Lilia is also used in Romania, but less frequently than in the Republic of Moldova and you will also usually see it on women over 40.

Lilia (Lily) is the most graceful name for a female. It's so soft, so feminine and you always imagine the person who has this name to be really sweet and gentle. It's a simple name, but beautiful. I really like flower names and it's one of my most liked names. If I ever had a daughter I would name her Lilia.

This name is so pretty and it's so underused, I adore this name. This name is very refreshing among all the Maddison's, Addilyn's, Aiden's etc running around.

My name is Lilia and it is pronounced both ways as the above comment states. In Spanish it is lee-lee-uh and in English most pronounce it li-lee-uh. And it is true my name is ofttimes mispronounced and misspelled. I have more nicknames than I wish for because people cant pronounce my name although I don't see the difficulty. Overall I think it's a beautiful name a perfect combination of everything a name needs and I absolutely love being named Lilia.

I love this name! Yes, it could be mistaken for other names such as Lily, but sometimes that's just inevitable. To me it sounds classic but modern, sophisticated but fun, fiesty but delicate, natural but exotic. I love it!

This is a beautiful name! I believe this is a nice variation for the name Lillian, since that name is getting very popular. My great-grandmother was named Lillian and I think Lilia would be a name that would still honor hers. I think it could be pronounced either lil-ee-ah or Lee-lee-ah. Both ways are pretty.

It's pretty but I'd think carefully before giving this name to a child. Most people haven't heard of it but it sounds a lot like a few other popular names. So young Lilia will almost certainly get called Lydia, Olivia and Lily. This could get pretty tiresome for her, could give her a complex about her name, who knows!

Personally, I prefer simple English Lily.

The 19th century Scottish author George MacDonald, who wrote such classics as "The Princess and the Goblin", "Lilith", "Phantastes", and the fairy tales "The Light Princess" and "The History of Photogen and Nycteris", had a daughter named Lilia. George MacDonald is my favorite author, and I think Lilia is a very beautiful name. Very delicate and lovely, Lilia is a wonderful name.

Lilia is a minor character in Clive Barker's novel Weaveworld. She was among the first to be unleashed from the Fugue after Cal tore a piece off. Unfortunately, she was killed by the Rake (not an actual RAKE, silly! A monster!) soon after. (It's a great book.)

In the game Harvest Moon 64, Lilia is the wife of Basil and mother of Popuri. She runs the flower shop, and has pink hair. She's one of my favorite characters, actually. In the game, your character can choose to marry Popuri, making Lilia your mother-in-law.

The Bulgarian masculine name "Kremen" (the stress is on the 2nd "e") and its feminine form "Kremena" (the stress is on the 2nd "e") are connected with "Lilia". "Liliya" is the Bulgarian variant of "Lilia" and in Bulgarian "krem" is the other word for "liliya", which means the flower "lily".

"Lilia" is derived from the flower "lily", that is why "Lilia" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) - the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday). The Bulgarian variant of "Lilia" is "Liliya"; "Liliya" has a nameday on Palm Sunday, because the Bulgarian word "liliya" means the "lily".
