Comments for LILLY:

It's a nice name for a middle name but please if you're a parent don't be mean and choose Lilly for your child's first name.

Why wouldn't this make a good name? There is the "plastic purse" reference but not much else.

My grandmother's name was Lillian, and I think that Lilly would be a great way to honor her without being too stuffy and old-fashioned.

This name is so pretty and elegant.

This name is so beautiful, I wish my name was this!

This is one of my favorite flower names, I especially like the double Ls. :)

I love that name! I would name my daughter that. It sounds so pretty with a long middle name like Michelle or Melissa.

I despise this name. I absolutely LOVE Lily, but the double "l" really ruined it. It doesn't sound lovely and elegant anymore! Now it just sounds ditzy, preppy and overly girly!

I don't think that the double L's make much of a difference in the sound of this name at all. Definitely doesn't make it look more ditzy; if anything, the double L's make it look more grown-up. Lily is also pretty, but this would have to be my favorite spelling.

No, no, no. LILY is the name. Lilly is just an ugly deformation of it.

This name is for a flower and not a person, no offense! But I think people names should go with, well, people names. Yeah but other than that it is short, kinda awkward, for a baby name, and just plain odd. Something about the name is inviting and has its own little twist! Yeah so it is an okay name!

I really like the name Lilly. I don't know why. I don't really like it as much when it doesn't have the double L's. I plan on naming my daughter this eventually whenever I have one.

I love love love this name! Not just because it's my own. In general. It's great!
-- lilly_g  2/12/2008
I like Lilly with two "L"s because it seems more balanced than Lily. This is a nice nickname for Elizabeth too. It is not as used as Liz, Lizzie, or Beth. I think it's fine on its own though.

I LOVE this name. If I have a daughter, I think I'll name her this. I can't really choose which spelling I like best, though. It also looks good with "ie", and Lily looks a little too short, but it's how the flower is spelt. But it doesn't matter how it's spelled, because it sounds the same, beautiful. It's hard to imagine a mean girl named this.

I love this name! This is what I named my dog (hey, I was four at the time), after that bunny from Richard Scarrey's Best Counting Video Ever (like I said, four).
-- welovejamesarness  7/9/2008
I like it so much better with two L's instead of one. "Lily" almost looks like it should be pronounced "LIE-lee," although I know that's how the flower is spelled.
-- Jesussaves7193  1/5/2009
Also used as a surname.
-- Hushpuppy  6/3/2009
Both Lily and Lilly are pretty, but I have to agree with the person who says that Lilly would be a good nickname for Elizabeth. Since Elizabeth is my favorite name right now, I'm looking for nicknames--since it's a long name--and Lilly is one of my favorites.

The surname of famed English astrologer William Lilly (1602-1681). He is most famous for predicting The Great Fire of London 14 years before it happened using astrological methods. This led to accusations that he had started the fire himself, but there is no proof that this is true.

This spelling also reminds me of the beautiful Australian evergreen myrtle tree, the lillypilly, which has pink flowers and pink to mauve berries.
-- keepitreal  1/21/2011
I personally like this spelling over Lily or Lillie. Lily sounds like the flower, and Lillie is okay but sounds kind of childish. Lilly sounds classic but modern, and is less common than Lily :)

Lilly Pulitzer, designer and brand name of a preppy clothing line. Lilly is actually her nickname. Her full first name is Lillian.

Lilly is my name, given to me in an era where no form of Lily was the least bit trendy at all. I was named after a Lillian. My parents choose this spelling because a) it looked better with my middle and last name, and b) it's more fun to write in cursive. I love writing out my signature with the double-L.

FYI, this spelling does not change the way it sounds. It's physically impossible for a spelling to affect the way a name sounds.

Yes, people misspell my name as the more common Lily all the time (even when my name is spelt right out in front of them on Facebook), but it's not a big deal for me as I'm the only Lilly (or any variant of Lily) that I know. The younger generations may have more of an issue.

According to the US social security site, Lilly and Lillie were more common than Lily in the late 1809s. My guess is that this has to do with the nickname-as-the-full-given-name trend. Nicknames like Minnie instead of Minerva and Annie instead of Anne were quite common. I tar it that Lilly and Lillie were seen as nicknames for Lillian.
