    Along the lines of my other post … If you were deciding between Julia and Lily, which would you go with?

    Ahh, I love both of them so much!

    For me personally, I would probably use Julia as a middle name, to honor one of my best friends, but not actually call my daughter the same name as my friend. But I think it’s perfectly lovely as a first name too! And Lily is one of my absolute favorites, or the longer Lillian (or Liliana) with Lily as a nickname, but I also think it works excellently as a full name…

    For you, I think I’d lean slightly more toward Julia, but really, either of them would be really great…

    LOVELOVELOVELOVELOVE Lily! Then again, its ties to my grandma run so deep that I’d pick Lily (or a Lily variant) over most names. I do love Julia, though, and recently considered re-adding it to my list. What about something like Lily Juliana, or Julia Lily?

    For me, I’d pick Lily, but for you, Julia just seems so you. And William, Alexander, and Julia are perfect!

    I love Julia, and I’ve never been a big fan of Lily. I like names like Lillian and Liliana, but I’ve just never really loved Lily. I think Julia is timeless, elegant, and underused. :)

    Lily would be my pick. I’ve never been a fan of any Jul-names except for Juliet.
