I know I made another post a while back on baby names and decided on Emma Elizabeth. While Emma is perfect for our baby, because me and s/o both LIKE it and it starts with E, I just cant commit to it 100 percent. I am so in love with the name Lily I just cannot get it out of my head. I have tried to find things wrong with it but the only thing I can find that I dont like is it doesnt start with E.

So its between Emma and Lily and my other kids names are Evan and Eli. Which would you choose? I really need some opinions!

I would have no problem choosing Lily over Emma if that was the name I loved! Especially since you're having a girl, to switch up the letters always makes sense to me when it's th boys having one letter and the girls having another.

I would choose Emma but that's just my OCD coming out...I couldn't not do an E name.

What about Emma Lily / Emma Lillian / Emma Liliana and you could call her Lily if you wanted to?

I would stick with the E theme and do Emma Lily, or if Elizabeth has meaning I would do Emma Lily Elizabeth or Emma Elizabeth Lily OR combine the two names and go with Emily

I love both names! I really like the suggestion of Emma Liliana and calling her Lily. Then you'd have the three E's but still the Lily nn.

I say go with Lily if that's what you really love. There shouldn't be hard and fast rules when it comes to naming your child in my opinion.

I was going to suggest Emma Lillian.. or you could be outrageous (j/k) & use Emma-Lily

While I think Emma would be more suited with your other kids names (BECAUSE of the E aspect), I think it's also 'legal' to use Lily, because it's a girl... but then if you had another girl, would that mean you would 'need' to use another L name?

I really like Emma Lillian, and agree you could completely call her Lily.

Actually I think we have decided on Lily. Someone made a good point that even though I feel done having children now what if I DO ever have future children...I thinks its best to break the E's now because there is NO way I will ever be able to come up with another E name I like so this will solve the problem of future children (If I have any).

Thanks for all of your great suggestions though!!

I really love Lily! If you are going to have more babies break the e's now but if your done...

What about Elianna? call her Lily. I think having the boys E's and the Girls L's could be cute.
