I love my name, it is spelled exactly like you see it here and it is not short for anything. I was born in 72 and as you can see by the chart above, I was the only LILLY in my class. Some people mispell but since it has become more popular again most people get it close. All in all I have not had any bad experinces with my name.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

LILLY IS THE prettiest name i've ever come across. All the lillys I know are amazingly stunning and fabulous. Everyone should call their daughter Lilly. Actually no, cause then I can't and it wont be original anymore. but It's amazing!!

My name is also Lili-the French spelling. I was named after my mom, LILY. I find the name VERY VERY popular these days and in the recent years. I am an adult Lili. The name can be found in movies, music, stores, everywhere. Here in the'state I am residing, my name is very uncommon. If you want to meet other Lili's, California is the place.

I am pregnant with my first baby. Ever'since I was a young girl I always thought I would name my baby girl Lilly. I have been looking at different names but keep coming back to the'simple but pretty name Lilly.

11/21/2023 12:53:20

Everybody spells my name wrong! It is SO annoying! They always spell is "Lily, Lilli, Lillie, Lili, Lillian, Lilan, and Cara(Cara is my friend and people think we look alike, which we don't.)" There was this girl named Lily in my elementry school, and the teache's ALWAYS gave me her'stuff by accident, which can get extreamly annoying. Teache's misspell my name all the time. I guess as you get older it bothe's you less, I'm beginning to get use to it, although it is very annoying when people call me Cara. People are always complimenting my name though. They are always saying "It's so pretty" and stuff like that.
