It's a very pretty simple name. Just perfect for a little girl!

I think that Lilian and Lillian are nice names, and people should stop trying to find variations. They are just fine the way they are.

I don't get it. On the ratings, people think Lillian is "Unintellectual", but with Lilian, they think it's nerdy.

This name is very pretty. I much prefer Lilian to Lillian as it looks more balanced. My grandmother's name was Lilian and her character was as pretty as the name, very special meaning.

This name sounds very elegant. I like the short form, Lily, too. But the variant Lily Ann is just awful!

This is a lovely name. It sounds very esthetic without being cutesy and girly. I only hope it isn't overused as a middle name, as I would like to combine it with something a little more unusual. Very charming.

Lilian is very pretty. I think the spelling Lillian is a little overdone, as the lily flower is spelled with a single L.

"Lilian" is the typical form used in the UK. "Lillian" is the typical version used in the USA.

The name does have a nice, understated elegance to it. And no need for fancy-shmansy pronunciations: "LIL-ee-un" will do just fine! ;-D.

Lilian is so pretty but she is fragile like a little purple flower.
-- hoover MC Crossboy  1/15/2016
I prefer this spelling to Lillian, and I find this name to be a beautiful classic that I hope never fades away. Though to be honest, as pretty as "Lily" is as a nickname, I think hearing "Lilian" instead of "Lily" gives it more originality. Lily's are everywhere, Lilians are rare.

I prefer Liliana, and I like this name only for a girl.
