    Is Lilac wearable on an adult?

    Lilac is currently penciled in to my short list BUT is it really adult appropriate? Can an adult pull it off without it always being super cutesy?

    I think it is gorgeous.. Can it really be used?

    Thanks!

    It's a lovely name, but I think you have to be a certain kind of person to wear it as an adult. Maybe it could be a middle name? I see the name Mila Poppy in your signature... Maybe you could have a floral middle name theme for your daughters? Something like Cassia Lilac could sound perfect.

    I think it could work on an adult, but it might be better as an mn. She could always go by Lila if she felt it was too cutesy or immature for her professional career.

    I don't see it as anymore cutesy than Violet or Scarlett. It's a botanical name, but a color too. L names are very popular.

    If my name was Lilac, I would be hesitant to use my full name professionally, or socially. I'd probably go by Lila. Lilac is too whimsical for everyday life.
