This is my best friend's middle name. Her first name is Chole. They may not sound good together but it's still a cute name. I also like the song Hey There Delilah by the Plain White T's

I think the name is pretty, as I am sure she was, but I could never name my child after a person who was so intentionally evil! It's like this poor child I knew where the parents named him Lucifer because they liked the way it sounded... so sad.

The first time I heard the "Hey There Delilah" song by Plain White T's, my boyfriend sang it to me. Ever since I have adored that name. He says he's going to name his first little girl that name and everytime he does, I love the name that much more! I can't wait until I can name my little girl Delilah. It's such a strong and beautiful name!

In 2004, I had a baby girl who we named Delilah Celeste. My mother-in-law hated/s the name. She told my older daughter it's a hussy name. The name is perfect for her. She is so full of life and energy! She's perfect, and she drives me nuts. She loves hearing "her" song. When they say "Times Square can't shine as bright as you", that is totally her. She's just a joy. I chose Celeste because I felt she needed an equally strong, beautiful, uncommon name to compliment her. She's perfect.

Since the first time I read the story of Delilah and Samson, I have been in love with this name. I am not pregnant now, nor do I plan on getting pregnant any time soon (I'm 17) but my boyfriend and I both adore the name. We plan on naming our first daughter Delilah. :D It will probably fit her well.
