Daylily: pretty and unique or what are you thinking?
 
I love the name Lily- just Lily not Lilian/a or Lilibet or the other offshoots. But my husband is fond of nature names that are unique and while a nature name- Lily is pretty common.

So that us how we came to Daylily. It's my favorite flower. Love both the name Day and Lily so! Pregnant me is thinking why not both together! After all- people are getting away with naming their daughters Primrose and Juniper. Perhaps Daylily is an unused gem just waiting to crack into the top 1000 name list!

I think it is a little strange but like you said that may just be because it's not been used before!

i think lily by itself is pretty :) since lily is becoming more common you could always do an uncommon middle name. but no matter what it's your baby so pick what name YOU like best!

Sorry, not a fan myself to have it as a first name. More of a middle name for me.

Yeah, I'm pushing Lily Day as a first/ middle combo.

It's uncommon so it seems strange at first, but you are totally right, if Primrose and Juniper can be names, Daylily can as well. I don't think it sounds bad at all, my ear is just unused to it. It is beautiful and unique.

Re: Daylily: pretty and unique or what are you thinking?
 
For me it's not about it being uncommon. Sometime when I say uncommon names several times, they grow on me - like Paisley did years ago. But Daylily just isn't nice sounding to me. Maybe a Dalily (du lily or da lily) or something but it seems so harsh with Day Lily. It's the long a that ruins it for me and makes it sound more like a thing than a name.

I prefer just Lily. It's a classic name, I wouldn't feel the name needed anything 'else'… It so pretty by itself :)
