Lilly has also been used as a nickname for Elisabeth.

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.
