A combo for Lillian…

    Lately I’ve really been leaning toward Lillian as my Lily name. I really adore it, and it’s so much fun to say! I’m torn on a combo, though. So far, I’ve tossed around:

    Lillian Carolina
    Lillian Cecilia
    Lillian Emilia
    Lillian Serafina

    But I’m not really convinced with any of them. They all seem to fall short, even though I love all four options as middles. I have also been entertaining the idea of Lillian Elena, for a sweet little Laney in my life who has only been given a few weeks to live (she was diagnosed with leukemia in May, and it has steadily progressed over the past half year or so), but I’m not sure about Elena with Lillian, and I’ve been tossing around Catherine Elena as a way to honor her instead.

    Any other ideas? Since some seem to find Lillian a bit frumpy/old-lady and boring, I figured something sweet and super pretty and innocent would work great with it. Emilia’s the closest to meeting this criteria for me, but meh, I’m still not sure. Any great Lillian combos out there?

    I think Lillian Elena is super cute! I also like Lillian Rosalie. I used to be convinced I wanted to use a version on Lily and the one I really liked was Lilia! I thought it was a good cross between Lillian (which is a little dated to me) and Lily (which I feel is more of a child’s name). Still a good name though!

    Thanks! I do like Lilia quite a bit–but Liliana and Lillian just feel more right atm. I always seem to go back and forth between Liliana, Lillian, and Lilia! You don’t think Lillian Rosalie is too much flower? I like it, in a way, because the Lily part honors my grandmother, and then my sister’s birthflower is the rose, and my other sister’s fn ends in -alie (plus, the rose is both of their favorite flowers!). I’m just worried it is a bit too cutesy. I’ve been leaning toward Lillian Charlotte, Lillian Cecilia, and Lillian Emilia the most, but I do still like Lillian Rosalie a lot. :)
