  1. I love the name lily even though my name is rayne i want that name so badly

  2. I thought this was a beautiful name! We were stuck between “Lilly” or “Lily“. Ultimately, I loved how the double L version looked more elegant when written in cursive. We also loved how she wouldn’t be referred to as a flower.

  3. I’ve loved the name since I was a little girl and knew It would be my daughter’s name.

  4. Lilly was named after my favorite flower. I love calla lilies.

  5. I’ve always loved the name Lilly. It always reminded me of the flower or Tiger Lily from Peter pan. We went with the 3 L’s instead of 2 cause its different. We wanted a name that you’ve heard of before but not very common.

  6. My husband knew from the moment I was pregnant that I was going to have a girl. We were looking over names and when I seen Lilly, that was it. I fell in love!

  7. My oldest is Lilly, it has always been the name that I’d wanted since I was a kid do you know when you’re talk about what you want to do when you grow up and want your kids names are going to be that was always my name. Then my husband’s grandmother’s name happened to be Lillian so it worked out perfect for us. My second his name is Christopher and we chose his name just because we didn’t want to make him a junior because his dad’s name is Christian. My third is violet and she was named after my husband’s great-aunt so when I got pregnant with my fourth child I felt like both of my first girls were flower names which was not intentionally done but I felt like now I need to stick with this theme and I looked at all these different flower names and I didn’t like any of them and we ended up with hazel for our baby and I figured it still works because witch hazel is a plant so then they’re kind of all in the flower themed area even though that’s not what I originally intended to set out to do. So I have a Lilly, Christopher, Violet, and Hazel
