    Lily-Josephine?

    I'm currently reading an amazing book, titled Lily-Josephine. It's a bit odd, but it's got an amazing little love story element to it. It has a certain Cinderella type feel (the stepmother hated Lily-Josephine, causing her to run away from home), without being too much of a fairy tale.

    As I was reading it, I found out why Lily-Josephine's mother (who was beautifully named Helena) chose the name. The direct quote is:

    "I read somewhere, I can't remember where - Joseph, in the Bible, was so beautiful that the lilies of the Nile turned their faces towards him, mistaking him for the sun. I want our little daughter to be both the lily and the Joseph - the flower and the sun."

    I don't know why, but the name and the quote are really sticking with me.

    How do you feel about Lily-Josephine?
    I've been staring at the hotel ceiling,
    Drinking everything I've found this evening,
    Trying to hold on to the sweetest feeling,
    So I'll never let you go, don't you leave me lonely.

    Lily Josephine is lovely but I probably wouldn't use it as a double barrel first name. I prefer Lily Josephine nn Lily Jo.
    Current favorites:
    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary

    What a wonderful name! I would consider it as a first and middle, just because it is a little long.

    Thank you everyone :-) I really love it, but wondered about the length myself.
