My grandmother was born and raised in Finland and had a WONDERFUL middle name - Lyyli. Although in Finland it is said LUH-[name]Lee[/name]… She always said Lie-[name]Lee[/name]… Americanizing it.
I think this is such a beautiful name but I have reservations about using a name with a Finnish Origin… It almost seems like one of those made up names that people add Y’s to… to add some flair.
What does everyone think of the name Lyyli? I love it so much… but I just really can’t get past the fact that I would feel compelled to explain how I found the name and why it is spelled the way it is and that I didn’t just randomly make it up. Any ideas?
PS. She had two middle names… Lyyli Maaria. My name is [name]Maria[/name] after her. I would love to use Lyyli [name]Maria[/name]!
