Opinions on Lilac

Sorry I’ve posted a few times about this name…

I was just wondering in general what would you think if you met a little girl called [name]Lilac[/name]? Would you think it was a nice name? A bit too out there?? Would you think it strange? etc.
[name]TIA[/name] :slight_smile:

For me, [name]Lilac[/name] is just a little too out there.
It has a harsh sound too with the “ack” ending, but that’s just my opinion.
I much prefer [name]Lila[/name] or [name]Lily[/name]. [name]Lavender[/name] is interesting and has a softer sound, but I wouldn’t use it personally since I tend to be conservative when it actually comes time to name.
What about [name]Lilac[/name] as a middle name?

I like it! It’s different, but still familiar. I bet she would get lots of compliments on her name!

I like [name]Lilac[/name] as a middle name. [name]Elizabeth[/name] [name]Lilac[/name] or [name]Katherine[/name] [name]Lilac[/name]. I think [name]Lilac[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name] sounds nice too. Definitely needs something soft to go with it.

I’m not sure I like it as a fn. Maybe as a mn though.

I like it but I have moved to an area of the US where people say lye-LACK instead of LYE-lick which is how I always heard it growing up. I really, really don’t like the lye-LACK pronunciation.

I think it’s a very pretty name, and I’d love to see it on a little girl. I actually have a friend, [name]Lila[/name], whom I call [name]Lilac[/name] as a nickname, and I think it’s very sweet and perky.

It’s too out there for me to use, but it’s not too out there for me to hear on someone else, if that makes any sense.

I think it’s got a lot of charm and character!

Whatever you decide, I wish you the best! :slight_smile:

[name]Just[/name] a thought, does anyone else think [name]Lilac[/name] and [name]Scarlett[/name] would make a cute sibset?

I think it is a pretty, feminine name, very nice indeed. Of course it is a bit out there but a vast improvement on the Addisons and Jadens.

I don’t think you need a nn but [name]Lily[/name] would make a pretty nn.

[name]Lila[/name] ([name]Lilah[/name], [name]Lyla[/name]) is Arabic for [name]Lilac[/name]. I think [name]Lila[/name] is a much prettier version of [name]Lilac[/name].

I find it a beautiful, albeit unusual, name with a nice connotation. I do think that people might confuse it with [name]Lila[/name], since it is only one letter different, and/or that could become a nick name.

I am expecting #5 and [name]Lilac[/name] was my first pick! DH doesn’t really like it, but I think it’s beautiful.

I think it’s very pretty but I still prefer [name]Lilly[/name] or [name]Liliane[/name]. I’m not a fan of [name]Lilah[/name] really, not sure why…
