This is a beautiful name and it rhymes with million.

This name does not rhyme with million! It is pronounced Lil-ee-an, not lil-lion.

Lillian does so ryhme with million. Some people don't pronounce it mil-yon, I prononce it Milli-on. Lillian is a pretty name, also the name of the twin, Lil, from the Rugrats.

Reminds me of a little girl in a tea/party dress.

I love the name Lillian. I think it's WAY prettier than Lily, but that's probably because my name is Lillian.
-- Anonymous User  12/18/2006
I wish that Lillian wasn't rising in popularity, it makes my name so unspecial.
-- 7up  1/23/2007
This name is a name that seemed to catch my interest. But not a name that I've really liked.
-- Snuggle318  2/1/2007
Lillian is a nice name.
-- firestar0928  2/11/2007
This name is not pretty to me, it sounds old and uninteresting. Not popular on the west coast at all.
-- laytongirl  3/21/2007
Well my name is Lillian and I know only one other Lillian and she is one month old I am proud of the name Lillian and I never even considered going by Lilly or Lily.
-- lillian7  4/22/2007
I think this name is so weak. It sounds like the name of a person who has no spine.

My sister is called Lillian and she is 15! It is not just a name for old people. She gets compliments on her name a lot. At least you remember it more than say a person named Emily or Kate. I like those names, but they are very common.
-- smurphul  6/1/2007
Lillian Smith, author of "Strange Fruit" is a famous bearer.

Lillian and Jillian for twins.
-- Anonymous User  7/20/2007
That would be ridiculously cruel. Yes, and here is Lillian and Jillian. Otherwise known as Jill and Lil, Jilly and Lily, Jill and Lily, or Jilly and Lil.

Wonderful name, glad it's still popular.

Beautiful name. Utterly classic.
-- johann14  9/25/2007
I find it extremely beautiful and a definite classic. It's very unique in my opinion, and it really is just SO beautiful!
-- BelleBeauty  10/23/2007
I'm 15 and my middle name is Lillian (after my grandma) and some days I love it and some days I hate it. It's just one of those names that sounds old sometimes and pretty others.
-- b.lillian  3/20/2008
A famous bearer was American playwright Lillian Hellman (June 20, 1905 – June 30, 1984). Among her well-known works are the plays 'The Children's Hour' (1934), 'The Little Foxes' (1939) and 'Toys in the Attic' (1959), as well as the screenplay to the 1977 film "Julia."
-- AndrewJKD  4/13/2008
I think the name Lilly is really cute, but the name Lillian is too old fashioned.
-- KayeKiLa  9/14/2008
Lillian does not rhyme with million, even if you do say it milli-on. It's Lil-ee-an, not Lil-ee-on. It's not old fashioned either; it's rising in popularity. My name is Lillian, and I have a spine and I don't wear tea/party dresses.
-- speechie409  11/3/2008
I love this name, my cousin has it but hers is spelt Lilienne. Personally I like that spelling better.
-- Naphtahalia  12/2/2008
Strange, I was not a fan of the name until my best friend came along. I only like it for having the same meaning to my name, Susanna.

This is a beautiful name and has a pretty nickname of Lily. Unfortunately it has become too popular so I've had to remove it from my potential baby-name list. Too bad. :(
-- SpicyWolf  10/9/2009
My name is spelled Liliane. It was influenced by my grandmother's name Diane.
-- Lily_le_Fae  11/18/2009
Love this name so much! But I hate the nickname Lily, and how popular it is, hopefully it will go down in popularity!
-- gabbygrace1915  12/9/2010
I'm sorry, but I really don't like this name. It reminds me of old lady.
-- Chrila96  1/23/2011
Whenever I hear this name I think of the racist b-word Lillian-Jean from "Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry" by Mildred D. Taylor. That is why I don't like this name.
-- Meapergirl  10/22/2011
Old-fashioned, but pretty girls name.

Lillian Florence Hellman (b. 1905 in News Orleans, Louisiana) was an American author.
-- Anonymous User  5/31/2012
I think this name is beautiful, but it's extremely popular in the United States so I would only ever use it as a middle name.
-- Anonymous User  7/9/2012
Beautiful, classic name that's making a comeback. Lilly is a good nickname. I know someone with this name and everyone tells her it's their grandmas name, which I think is good because that's just proof it can age well!
-- Anonymous User  1/11/2013
I really like this name, but it's a shame its getting so trendy. At least it's a beautiful name with history, unlike many trendy names. I would say maybe use this as a middle name with a more unique name, because it definitely deserves use. However, I feel like there are going to be a lot of little Lillian's in preschools and kindergartens soon, so be careful. But if you really love it as a first name, go for it! I really like Lillian as just Lillian with no nicknames because although I like the name Lilly, its just too common these days. That could be a reason why this name has gotten more use in recent years.

In Bulgarian the name Liliana (pronounced Lilyana, with the accent on "ya") comes from a popular pronunciation of the flower "lilac" (Syringa vulgaris).
-- brn  3/8/2015
My name is Lily, and people ALWAYS ask if my real name is Lillian. It's actually Elizabeth XD. I honestly love the name Lily but hate the name Lilly or Lillian.
