I have loved the name Lilah since forever! I just think it's so cute and lovely. I love Delilah also but I could never use it because of the bible reference, so Lilah is a great alternative!
- Personal experiences with the name Lilah: | Edit
My name is Lilah, but it's pronounced LEE-lah (like the name Lila, I suppose), but I've always gone by Lily since Lilah is pronounced wrong a lot like LIY-lah, which is just not my name.
Yes, the same with me. Lilah is short for Kaililah (kiy-LEE-lah) so it's pronounced like lila.
