My partner and I love the name Lily, but feel it may be a little short compared to our daughters 4 syllable name.
Lillian or Lilianna, with the nickname Lily, would have been great longer name options. But we have family members with the names Ann and Anna, who we do not want to name our daughter after.
A Lily- name I like and can't stop coming back to is Lilyella. I heard it many years ago as a teenager (a singer in a band I can't remember the name of, 'All Saints' maybe?, has a daughter named Lilyella), and the namevhas just stuck with me all these years. But I don't even know if its a 'real' name or not? I guess all names were made-up once though? :) I can't find any information on it on here or on other sites. It will be a very unusual name in my contry so I don't know if we should use it or not.
I'm hoping that someone here will know something about the name but mostly I'm interested in your opinions and thoughts on it. How would u pronounce it? Lily-Ella like a double name or like Gabriella but Lily- instead of Gabri-, or something else?
And also, incase we don't go with Lilyella, any ideas on other Lily-names would be very welcome.
Thanks in advance :)
