Aesthetic yet cute and the same time!
Love this name. I think being spelled Lila, it looks more elegant than Lilah.
Has negative connotations because it has "lie" in it and Lila Rossi has this name, who almost everyone seems to vehemently dislike because she always gets everyone in trouble in really obvious ways.It's a shame it has those connotations otherwise it would be so pretty!
So pretty:)
Lila (LEE-la) is the Swedish word for purple. It's normally not used as a name.
So beautiful, it makes me think of music. Very easy on the ear and flowy-sounding. My sister's cat is named Lila and she's a very funny creature. Her nickname is Lilee. I like this name and the meaning a lot. It's fun to say.
This should be pronounced Lil-ee-a.
Breathtakingly beautiful.
Lila Fowler is the name of a snobby rich girl in Sweet Valley Twins and Sweet Valley High. I have a friend name Lila though, and she is very nice and not snobby at all!
I’m sorry, but I really don’t like this name. I know this is a nice variant to Lyla, but the ‘li/ly’ bit is annoying. I don’t know any Lilas in real life, but if you think about pop culture, all the associations I know are bad. For example the Miraculous Ladybug character, Lila Rossi and Lila Bird from Boy Girl Dog Cat Mouse Cheese. The name just reminds me of someone who lies!Of course, if you like this name, like this name. I’m not here to judge you. If you have a different opinion, that’s fine. Don’t take my comment too seriously, as I said, I never knew anyone named Lila. If you want to name your daughter Lila here are some middle names:
Lila Rose
Lila Imogen
Lila Giselle
Lila Izabelle.
I wouldn’t worry about nicknames at all! Lila is a lovely name and I don’t care if the nickname is Lie. Y’all need to stop worrying about it.
I prefer this to Laila! I ALSO LOVEEEEEE LILAC!
Beautiful, like Lilac! Also prefer this over Leila, I prefer Laila a little better.
It's the name of that girl from Miraculous Ladybug, Lila Rossi, WHO ALWAYS LIES.
Nickname “Lie”?! No thank you!
Love this name, it sounds so cute & sweet! :)
Prefer it over Leila. Soft, pretty and sweet name.
Please don’t use any name that starts with “lie”!
This is a nice name, my friend's first account on some game she made had a username saying “Lila” in it because it is a pretty name.
I like it! I do know a pretty mean Lila, but that doesn't stop me from liking the name.
Lila means1) Hebrew/Arabic: night
2) French: the fragrant flower; lilac, lily, fleur de lys - a symbol of royalty
3) apparently "playful" in Indian
4) German: a pretty shade of violet.
Elegant pronunciation in English (lie-la) playful and girly in French (lee-la), you really can't lose with this one. I personally prefer lie-la, but we call her both at home since they always pronounce it lee-la in school. I actually fell in love with my israeli cousin's name Lilakh, but figured it would not be acceptable here because French do not bother pronouncing H or Kh.
That’s my name, and I think that I turned out okay!
I'd probably use this as a nickname for Leila or Lily, but I wouldn't use this as a first name. It sounds kind of tacky, and probably would be the name one would give to their cat, or maybe their favorite plush toy. Can't see this on an actual girl.
This name is soft and flows beautifully. I love it! It is pretty uncommon as well. Such a pretty name
One of the main characters from Frank Peretti's Cooper Kids Adventure Series is named Lila Cooper.
My name is Lilah, with an H. My name is getting more popular and it's kind of annoying, but I was almost named Tallulah. Being Lilah is fun.
The name Lila is usually meant to be pronounced as Lie-La not Lee-la, I believe the correct name for Lee-la is spelled Layla or Leila :)
Lila is such a pretty name, I have a friend called Lila and I wish I had her name. It sort of reminds me of a delicate flower because of the similarity between Lila and Lilac, it’s such a fun name that rolls off the tongue!

I always thought this name was pronounced like LEE-lah. Even now that I see how it's really pronounced, whenever I see this name, I will always hear LEE-lah in my head.
Wow, my whole life I thought this was pronounced LEE-lah. Interesting. I think for this reason I prefer Lyla or Lilah.
This name also coincides with the German word for "purple" (pronounced "LEE-la").

Lila (lie-luh) is a stunning choice! Ages so beautifully! It is fun to say and easy on the tongue! Could come from the biblical name Delilah. I also like the Lilah spelling.
I love this name! But I like to pronounce it LIL-AH I don't know if it's said like that in another language, but I'm in love with it pronounced that way.
I discovered this name when watching 'Bones' and I really like it. It's a beautiful classic name that's very sweet.
This name reminds me of the beautiful and fragrant lilac flower. I also like the alliteration of the two "L" sounds... to my ear, a lyrical and lovely effect.
