Full names for Lily

I absolutely love Lily, and although I know it is lovely first name, I love the idea of it as a nickname. Can anyone think of full names for Lily other than Lilian/Liliana/Lilith as I know nameberry users can be really creative and think of names I wouldn’t have. I really like pretty but quite traditional names if that helps? I also love the idea of Amelia as a full name for Lily… is it too far? Thanks!

Edit: I think one of my issues here is deciding between Amelia and Lily… what is your preference and why as well please?!

I prefer Amelia to Lily but I would prefer Lilac or Lilith to Amelia.

I am loving [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] right now! It actually means [name_f]Lily[/name_f] :slight_smile:

[name_f]Liliane[/name_f] or [name_f]Lilianne[/name_f]
[name_f]Liliosa[/name_f] (A new discovery of mine – very pretty and fun!)


[name_f]Susannah[/name_f] and [name_f]Shoshana[/name_f] both mean [name_f]Lily[/name_f], but I am not sure if you are looking for names that lack relatively intuitive nn potential.

You could also do something with a combo, like… [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] [name_f]Liana[/name_f]. Li from [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] and ly from [name_f]Liana[/name_f].

*You could use [name_f]Lily[/name_f] as a nn for [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], but I actually think they sound just fine together. Maybe you could do [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] nn [name_f]Mia[/name_f]. [name_f]Lily[/name_f] & [name_f]Mia[/name_f] is really cute!


[name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f] / [name_f]Elisabeth[/name_f] or [name_f]Susannah[/name_f] / [name_f]Susanna[/name_f] could go by [name_f]Lily[/name_f] :slight_smile:

It is a BIG stretch but we call our daughter [name_f]Leonora[/name_f] [name_f]Lily[/name_f] and [name_f]Lily[/name_f]-[name_f]Nora[/name_f] as a nn and she calls herself both [name_m]Leo[/name_m] and [name_f]Lily[/name_f]. If you think [name_u]Lee[/name_u]-[name_u]Lee[/name_u]… like I said a stretch but it works for us.

[name_f]Galilea[/name_f] (love, love, love this as a ln for [name_f]Lily[/name_f]!)
Lucelia / [name_f]Lucilla[/name_f]
[name_f]Emilia[/name_f] (pronounced like [name_f]Amelia[/name_f], but a more direct link to [name_f]Lily[/name_f])
