The lily is also, with death and purity, a symbol of rebirth.
In the Catholic church, the lily flower is a symbol of the Virgin Mary. In paintings, Mary is often portrayed holding, crowned with, or standing near lilies.
According to some, 'lilium' is the latinized form of Greek 'leirion' (λείριον).
Others theorize that both Latin 'lilium' and Greek 'leirion' are ultimately derived from an Egyptian word (or otherwise a word from one of the ancient Semitic languages), making neither 'lilium' or 'leirion' an authentic Latin or Greek word.
The flower of new life and rebirth.
Lily means pure and innocent.
My eldest daughter is called Lily-Jen. That's because my nickname has always been Jenny (it's Genevieve) so it's like Lil' Jen! Also because I love flower names. Lily is nearly 14 now and it seems to suit babies and teens alike, it fits any age.
