Lilac first popped up in the USA name records in 1979, then never again until 1995. Since then, it has rarely been used. In 2018, 25 girls were given this name.

Lilac is one of the many floral names that I don't like on a human. I would just go with Lila/Lyla instead.

Lilac is such a precious name:)

I don't think this name is good for a human being. Though I think Lila is a good name for a human being. My name is Lila.

This name is actually very pretty. That's probably because I also like the girls' name 'Lark'. :)

I have a big soft spot for this name, it's really pretty. Though, I'm not sure it would work for some people. It is really nice to me for some reason, haha.

I really love this name! I wish it was more common. If I had a daughter, the middle name should be Rose, Lily, or Isabel.

I think it's kinda pretty. Is it pronounced (Lie-lack).

I met a girl with the name Lilac, although it was not her first name. Her full name was Suzanne Lilac, which sounds pretty, but personally, I won't name a child Lilac.

It's pretty and makes a darling middle name. But as a first name, it's almost too sweet and delicate. But, of course, that depends on the bearer... if I met a tomboy Lilac, I'd probably view it differently.

This is really starting to grow on me (no pun intended). At first I thought it was a bit of a stretch for a name, but then I thought, "People use names like Rose and Lily and even Magnolia, so why not Lilac?" I don't think I'd be brave enough to use it, but it's really pretty. I love lilacs, too. :3.

I just discovered that this is a name, and I like it. I'm a huge fan of nature names (i.e. Vixen, Marine, Cedar, etc), so this might be one to add to my list.

Lilac is my given name, but I opted to use the slightly more common Lila. I was teased as a child because it was considered "weird".

I want to like this name, but all I can think of is someone taking a mad big whiff and going," MMMMMMHHH LILAAAAAAC"

In British English the word is most often pronounced /ˈlʌɪlək/ (LIE-lək) with a schwa sound. [noted -ed]

It's rather pretty, and I like the color, but I sincerely don't think it would fit an adult. It also sounds the slightest bit masculine, with the final "k" sound.

A less common alternative to Lily, with the downside that it doesn't have as much history as a name.

I think this would make a spunky middle name. ^__^ I like it.

This name should be more popular, especially as it makes a refreshing change from all those names ending in ee or uh.

This name is so pretty! I made up the name Lilaca (LIE-luh-ka). A good nickname is Lilac!

I used to like it as a name, but now I think Lilac sounds kind of like a drug that doctors would use as a medication.

This name is so pretty! It's one of my favorite names now!

Lovely and goes with a huge variety of middle names. I used to pretend this was my name when I was younger. I can't believe it's never really caught on as a name.

I think Lilac is so pretty, we have so many Lily names and varients, that Lilac does not sound so unusual. I love the smell of lilacs which happen to be my favorite flower. I think Lilac would be great as a first or middle name, with the nicknames Lil, Lily, or Lila (lye-luh).

I like this name I think it is pretty. Much prettier than some of the popular names like Emily and Emma.

Why is this name so UNpopular? I would think it's a pretty name if I met somebody called Lilac.

One issue that people could have with Lilac is that there is widespread regional variation in the pronunciation of the flowering bush (at least in the U.S., possibly elsewhere). In some regions the second syllable sounds like "lack" while in others it is "lock."

Yeah, I guess this'd be an okay name for a cat whatever, but not for a human being.

"Lilac" could have a nameday on Palm Sunday (the Sunday before Easter) - the day of flowers and willows (the names of the other trees also have a nameday).

My sister has a cat named Lilac. She's white and grayish-brown with some calico markings on her face. She is also very fat. But she's a pretty good cat most of the time.

Lilac is a character in my book series Andromeda. She was originally based on Violet from A Series of Unfortunate Events but know she is her own character.
