I'm in LOVE with the name Lila(h), and I would love to use it if I have another daughter in the future [Lila(h) Kate], but I have a couple of issues with it. I can never decide which spelling I prefer - Lila or Lilah. I think it looks more classy/feminine with an h at the end, but I like the simplicity of Lila.

Also, there is no obvious (to me) nickname for this name. My daughter, Jillian, gets called "Jilly" (or Monkey). My name is Brooke, and as a little girl most people called me "Brookie." I just can't imagine not having a NN for my child. Maybe it wouldn't be so much of an issue if the NN was unrelated to the actual name (Like the NN "Monkey" for Jillian).

What would you use as a NN for Lila(h), and how would you spell it?

I don't see why you'd need a NN with a short & sweet name like Lila or Lilah.. and for the record I prefer with the h good luck!

I can totally relate, I really like nicknames as well. Although, growing up...we sometimes developed nicknames for family that didn't reflect a part of their name, haha.

Anyway, how do you say it...LeeLuh or Lie-Luh?

If it's the first way: LeeLee

If it's the second way: I dunno! hehe

I do like the Lila spelling the best.

What if you would name something longer and have Lila(h) be the nn?
Like Delilah, nn Lilah

I don't think it really has a nick name.. it's pretty short and simple. I mean you could use "Lye-lee" but that's rather awkward to say.

I'd say make up a nickname that doesn't have anything to do with her given name. My kids are Luke and Lauren, and we call them Bubba and Miss, lol.

Thanks for the feedback, ladies!

Moonbeam, I say "Lie-luh"

Dontworry_behappy, I've considered that in the past, but I really don't like the name Delilah. I'm not sure why.

Kes, that's probably exactly what will happen! I'll probably call her "Ly-lee" (even though it does sound awkward), and give her a totally unrelated NN. Just like my Jilly, who I never planned to call "Jilly" in the first place. I called her "Monkey" since before she was born.

I like it with an h at the end.

As for n/n... I can't really think of any!

I prefer the spelling Lilah.

And, I don't see why you couldn't use the nn Lily; but, it rhymes with Jilly.

I love that name! I like it spelled Lilah.

If we have another lil girl her name will be Lylah Abigail. Spelled with a y because my hubby's middle name is Lyle.

Lily, Lylee, Lala, etc.. I'm sure anything that has "L's" would be fine, and even if it didn't have anything to do with the name it would be fine.

I much prefer this name without the "H". Lila looks so much more classy to me. I also think with the H it will be misspelled as Lila is a lot more common. (Lila is in the 100's- Lilah is in the 400's).
