  1. Lila is a Hebrew name meaning night.

  2. I was named after both of my grandmothers. My husband and I wanted to carry on that tradition, so we took my grandmother’s name and my husband’s grandmother’s name for her middle name – Lila Ruth.

    Lila is unique and more ‘vintage’ name. I love the Book of Ruth and wanted a strong name like that for my baby girl.

  3. My favorite flower is lilac.
    It’s unique, short and sweet.
