Which Lily- name is your favorite? I put the pronunciation of the latter two because I pronounce names ending in -ana as "on-uh" and names ending in -anna as "anne-uh" (although I realize there has been some debate of that in this forum). So, to me, they are two different names, not just two different spellings for the same name.

I picked the spellings above because they are the most popular/traditional/common spellings of each name (which is what I usually prefer for most names).

(Also, I really like Lileth; but I do not like the mythology behind it at all. So, I would never use it.)

Liliana.

Though I met a girl recently who named her baby Eliana and calls her Lily. I guess there's a "li" in there...

Maybe it's a regional thing, but around here names with one N are usually pronounce on-uh. And, many girls with two N's (Brianna, Keanna, Arianna) still want their names pronounced on-uh although they complain that many people say their names anne-uh.

I didn't even think of that one. I'll have to take it into consideration. Thanks!

I live in Florida, so there's a lot of Spanish influence to pronunciation.. people are used to the Ana Lucia and Ana Sophia (pronounced Ahn-uh), and "ana" is almost immediately said "ahn-uh".

Part of the time, at least, "anna" is also said "ahn-uh", but not usually.
