We are naming our daughter Lillah, due in July. We love the fact that the name is very unique (having not ranked within the top 1000 baby names in the US since the 1920s) and that it has special meaning for us, given that Elizabeth (the root name from which Lillah is derived) is the middle name of our daughter's grandmother and great-grandmother.
