My name is Lilly and I think It's a very pretty name, such a shame that it is becoming so popular hehe (since I'm 21, It's an unusual name for my generation)

Lily is such a delicate name. My sister just had a baby this week and she named her Lilly. She already had a few people spell Lily with one "L", but I'm sure they just aren't aware of how she'spells it.

my daughter is 'lily' and i love it. nobody ever'spells it incorrect. pregnant with my second and struggling to find an equally beautiful name

I am naming my baby girl Lilly Irene. I think It's such a pretty name and if that were my name, oh god I would just love it. When I think of the name Lilly, I think of etiquette and elegance, with playfulness and exploring in the mix.

I love the name. Not sure why people are so obsessed with "original" names. A name will not make a child original, that is your job as a parent. Everyone wants to be a star and have a name no one else does - insecurities? If my child is a girl she will be a Lilly for sure
