It’s a very big stretch for me, and I can’t see it; sorry.

[name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] [name_f]Lilia[/name_f]

Yeah, I was also worrying about it being way too much of a stretch!

Lorraine! I love this name. [name_f]Lilou[/name_f] is a fine nn. I like [name_f]Lara[/name_f], [name_u]Laurel[/name_u], [name_f]Rainie[/name_f], and [name_f]Reyna[/name_f] as nns too.

Lorraine [name_f]Eugenia[/name_f]
[name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] [name_f]Angelica[/name_f]
[name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] [name_f]Augusta[/name_f]
[name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] [name_f]Zenaida[/name_f]
[name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] [name_f]Emeraude[/name_f]
[name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] Pavlova

I guess it turns out I like rather over the top 3-4 syllable names with the more grounded and pleasant [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f]!

As her mother you can nn her anything you like. I think of these as pet names. Sometimes the child embraces them more publicly and others use the nn and other times they stay within the family.

And it’s impossible to tell which nn the child will like, hate, or be indifferent to. The luck of the draw!

I think [name_f]Lilou[/name_f] is a stretch for [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f], and that [name_f]Lilou[/name_f] is a name that stands on its own if that’s your preference. Me I love both personally.

Lorraine [name_u]Ellis[/name_u] or [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] Oleandra

or

Lilou [name_f]Justina[/name_f] or [name_f]Lilou[/name_f] [name_f]Palmyra[/name_f]

I would go straight to [name_f]Lilou[/name_f]. It has a lovely sound and can stand well on its own. You don’t mention if [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] is an honour name but if it is maybe you could consider using [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] in the middle as it isn’t related to [name_f]Lilou[/name_f], or giving her three names.

Lilou [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f] (I like the alliteration)
[name_f]Lilou[/name_f] [name_f]Alice[/name_f] [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f]
[name_f]Lilou[/name_f] [name_f]Ava[/name_f] [name_f]Lorraine[/name_f]
