We are pretty set on Lily for the first name of our baby girl due in April.
I would have prefered a longer name with Lily as a nickname, but don't like any as much as we love Lily. Also Lily was the name of my great great grandma.

But we are totally stuck on middle names. I hate everything that my friends are suggesting. Lily Rose is too flowery. Lilly Ann--No, if I'd use that I might as well go with Lillian for a first name.

Our top choices right now using other family names
Lily Claire (But when I say it fast it sounds like 'lil eclair', a small french pastry. )
Lily Irene (love the flow but don't like repeating RE from Irene and our last name Reid)

other names we like
Lily Josephine
Lily Sophia (too close to the jewelry Lia Sophia??)
Lily Katherine
Lily Cadence (dh and I met at band camp so music is important in our lives)

I'm open to suggestions and hearing your thoughts on these names.
Also, I'm due right around Easter. Is that super corny or cute to use a flower name so closely associated with the holiday?

I have Liliana "Lily Kate" Katherine picked out for another girl, so obviously Katherine gets my vote.

I like a longer (at least 3 syllables) mn with Lily.

And, no, do not think it's corny to name a baby girl born close to Easter by a flower name. I don't think most people would give it much thought. A Noelle or Holly near Christmas is much more obvious.
Thank-you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!

I love:

Lily Cadence and Lily Sophia (didn't even think of the jewelry).

I think Lily is definitely a Spring-time name, but it is not obnoxious to use around Easter, I think it's perfect

I also really like Lily Gabrielle/Gabriella or Lily Camilla
