Lyle for a girl
I posted a while ago with my top 10...and I have it narrowed down to 2. I really wanted an "L" name for our daughter to match me, our son, as well as my entire family. Husband is on board.
Problem is - all the L's are so terribly popular (Lily, Lucy, Layla, Leila).
So, I arrived at LYLE. And I really like it. I'm getting a lot of positive feedback from friends, but I also have gotten some sideways looks about it.
Asking for feedback on the name for a girl OR exciting, new unique L names.....

I like Lila (LYE-lah) a lot more for a girl--Lyle will irrevocably be a boys' name for me. As for more obscure "L" names, what about:
Lilibet (much more obscure than Lily, but the same charm, imo! If she's on the shier side, she can opt for Lily or Lila, or if she's more out-there, she could opt for the sweet and up-coming Betsy. It's sort of on the cutesy side, but I still really love it)
Lydia (on the more popular side, but less overdone than Lily, Lucy, and Layla)
