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!
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.
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.
