flower name help?

hi! my grandma´s name is [name_f]Lilly[/name_f], and since i just got two (yeey) positive test. im wondering if some of you clever girls can help me find a name that honors here some how? in Norwegian we say it like Lylly, i dont like the way it sounds in Norwegian, so i´m hoping you guys can help me find a good name :slight_smile: i´m liking Lillja or Lillje but they are in the 4%, as in less then 4% have those names. so yeah… help?

[name_f]Lilias[/name_f] is my favorite variation of [name_f]Lily[/name_f]. [name_f]Susannah[/name_f]/[name_f]Susan[/name_f]/[name_f]Zanna[/name_f]/[name_f]Shoshana[/name_f]/[name_f]Shana[/name_f] all mean “lily”. You could go with a specific type of lily such as [name_f]Calla[/name_f], [name_f]Arabesque[/name_f], Gloriana, [name_f]Marilla[/name_f], Navona are just a few. Here is a long list: http://www.thelilygarden.com/pages_general/index_alpha_images.html

Or the scientific genus classification [name_f]Lilium[/name_f].

Here are virtues that are associated with certain lilies:

White [name_f]Lily[/name_f]: [name_f]Modesty[/name_f]
[name_f]Lily[/name_f] of the [name_f]Valley[/name_f]: [name_f]Purity[/name_f] (of heart)
[name_f]Easter[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f]: The Virgin [name_f]Mary[/name_f]

If you are willing to branch out into floral names in general here are a few ideas:

[name_f]Gardenia[/name_f] (met a lovely woman recently with this name)

[name_f]Lillian[/name_f] :slight_smile:

[name_f]Calla[/name_f]. It’s the perfect way to honor a [name_f]Lily[/name_f], aside from another [name_f]Lil[/name_f]- name: [name_f]Lila[/name_f], [name_f]Lilia[/name_f], [name_f]Lilla[/name_f], [name_f]Lillian[/name_f], [name_f]Lilya[/name_f], [name_f]Lilja[/name_f], etc. I also like the sound of [name_f]Marilla[/name_f].

[name_f]Amaryllis[/name_f], [name_f]Fleur[/name_f], [name_f]Flora[/name_f], [name_f]Aster[/name_f] are all good ideas. [name_f]Leilani[/name_f] means ‘heavenly flower’, which could also be meaningful if your grandmother has passed.
