I absolutely love [name_f]Lucy[/name_f], [name_f]Lillian[/name_f], [name_f]Lavender[/name_f], and [name_f]Lilia[/name_f]. I want to love [name_f]Liv[/name_f] and [name_u]Laney[/name_u], but I prefer them as nicknames for longer names like [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] and [name_u]Delaney[/name_u]. [name_u]Lennon[/name_u] just reminds me of [name_m]John[/name_m] [name_u]Lennon[/name_u], [name_f]Lumi[/name_f] and [name_u]Lux[/name_u] are interesting, just not my style. Overall, it’s a really nice list!

For [name_f]Lily[/name_f], I like [name_f]Lily[/name_f] both on it’s own and as a nickname for either [name_f]Lillian[/name_f] or [name_f]Lilia[/name_f]. I think personally I would use [name_f]Lillian[/name_f] or [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] just because there are so many little Lilys out there, but popularity aside I think it’s still a really nice name.

  1. Laney - 9/10 love this! I prefer the Lainey spelling, but I think it makes a lovely nickname for Elaine/Elaina.

  2. Lavender - 8.5/10 this one is due to the fact that I’m a Potterhead, but I think Lavender is sweet, quirky, different and beautiful! It’s perfectly on trend as a color/nature name, and Lav is SUCH a cute nickname!

  3. Lillian - 8/10 I think this name is very sweet and classic! And I love the simple Lily as a nickname.

  4. Lumi - 7.5/10 This one is cute and different and I like it overall! I think it has the same kind of appeal as Remi, Romy, Lily, Luna, and others with similar sounds.

  5. Lucy - 7/10 Lucy is also a classic and while it’s pretty, it doesn’t do much to excite me. I do like it, though. Just don’t love it.

  6. Lennon - 6.5/10 I like this one. It’s not really my style but it makes sense for current naming trends and I don’t think it would stand out in a crowd. I don’t love Lenny/Lennie as a nickname though, which I tend to see a lot with Lennon/Lennox. Nonnie is a cute option!

  7. Lux - 6/10 this is cool and edgy, and I love the soft meaning of “light” for such a punchy, fun name. I also like the show Life, Unexpected, which features a main character named Lux. The provokes is that I just don’t see it aging well, and the sound is comparable to popular boy names (Jax, Huck, etc.).

  8. Liv - 5/10 I want to like this name but I just don’t! Olivia is such a common name, Liv doesn’t feel substantial enough on its own, and I’ve had some bad experiences with people named Olivia/Liv (as have many other people I know).

  9. Lillia - 5/10 I just don’t like this one. I think Lillian or Lily is much better personally. Also, no matter how often I see it or hear it, I’m still never sure on the pronunciation. I feel like this name just overcomplicates Lily/Lillian.

To answer your question: I prefer Lily, but to be truthful if I ever used the name I would probably still name her Lillian and call her Lily. Lillian is just lovely!

[name_f]Lumi[/name_f]

[name_f]Lucy[/name_f] - 8/10 - One of my favorite common/classic names.

[name_f]Liv[/name_f] - 4/10 - I’ve always liked this name, but nowadays it feels incomplete to me.

[name_f]Lavender[/name_f] - 5/10 - Due to the [name_u]Harry[/name_u] [name_m]Potter[/name_m] character, I hear “[name_f]Lavender[/name_f]” and think “shallow” :grimacing: But outside of that, it’s nice.

[name_u]Lennon[/name_u] - 6/10 - I like it for a liberal or “hippie” family due to my association with the late [name_m]John[/name_m] [name_u]Lennon[/name_u]. Plus it means “lover” which is darling, but I just don’t see it as a good name for a family who doesn’t have those values.

[name_u]Laney[/name_u] - 5/10 - A bit “basic” to me, but the meaning is gorgeous! (“bright, shining one”)

[name_f]Lumi[/name_f] - 8/10 - Stunning for a winter baby!

[name_u]Lux[/name_u] - 8/10 - This one has grown on me!

As for [name_f]Lily[/name_f], [name_f]Lillian[/name_f], and [name_f]Lilia[/name_f] I rate them all as 5/10 - Very lovely but extremely common.

Lucy - 9/10. sweet, adorable, soft with great namesakes. I never get tired of [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]!
[name_f]Liv[/name_f] - 8/10. short, simple, sweet, and spunky!
[name_f]Lillian[/name_f] - 2/10. not a fan, sorry. I prefer other ‘[name_f]Lily[/name_f]’ names. [name_f]Lillian[/name_f] just feels too dated to me.
[name_f]Lavender[/name_f] - 10/10. one of my absolute favorites! beautiful, sweet, unexpected. I really love the Matilda connection too!
[name_u]Lennon[/name_u] - 5/10. this is nice, just nms. also unsure about the [name_m]John[/name_m] [name_u]Lennon[/name_u] association. I do like nn [name_u]Lenny[/name_u]/Lennie though!
[name_u]Laney[/name_u] - 6/10. spunky and sweet. a tiny bit dated though.
[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] - 9/10. so beautiful! probably my favorite [name_f]Lily[/name_f] name.
[name_f]Lumi[/name_f] - 6/10. very cute and adorable! I like nn [name_f]Lulu[/name_f] too!
[name_u]Lux[/name_u] - 8/10. beautiful, spunky, zippy, with some edge!

I prefer [name_f]Lily[/name_f] either on its own or as a nn to [name_f]Lilia[/name_f]!
