From my last post a few people suggested using a longer name and having Lily for a nickname, the problem is we love Lily but dislike any full names for it, we like Liliana I guess but don't love it and I really think we should love our childs name.

So do you think we should take it off the list? Use it as a middle name instead? Or can it stand alone as a first name?

We have thought about Adelyn Lily and Lily Olivia.

Thanks!

coming from the self-proclaimed "queen of hating nicknames as full names"... I think it can! Its the only one I can think of that I'm okay with.

I definitely think it can, along with tons of other people in the U.S. It's number 27 on the SSA list for 2007.

Yes, it can- it's a flower, so it's no more a nickname than Rose, Violet or Amaryllis.

I prefer it this way. My SIL went with Lillyanna Marie, and I never cared for it (BTW, they call her Lilly!).

I like Lilly alone.


I really like Adelyn Lily


I liked Lily Olivia until I said it aloud, nothing is wrong with it, I just got a little tongue tied while saying it.

I think Lily is a pretty standalone name, so why not?
