I really like the name, considering that is my name. But I shall admit, when I was in primary and when they called out the roll and they always pronounced it 'lil-ja' which is incorrect so I had to correct them a lot. Once when I was 5 I told this woman how my name was spelled and she didn't believe me and wrote 'Lilya' on my bag; now when I remember it I can't help but laugh because that is how it's pronounced so I should have thanked her. Overall, a good and beautiful name, but it can be... Annoying at times.

I was introduced to this name by a Swedish film that was released in 2002 titled "Lilja 4-ever" written and directed by Lukas Moodysson, starring Oksana Akinshina as 'Lilja'. A well-done, but heartwrenching film about a 16-year-old Russian [or possibly Estonian] girl who ends up in Sweden for the worse.

Means Lily in Swedish too, pronounced Lil-ya. Not common as a name though.

This name is also used in Finland. It's the Finnish version of the name Lily. Very pretty. [noted -ed]

It does mean Lily in Finnish. It's pronounced, 'lil-ya'. A pretty and uncommon variant/version of the Lily names.
