Dahlia. I like the flower (it's a bit sassier than some flowers, very femme but not sugary) and I like the late-summer/early-autumn seasonal association I have with dahlia flowers. I also like the nickname Dolly, as I deeply admire Dolly Parton as a philanthropist and artist, but I don't consider Dolly especially usable as a formal first name.
I like Lila/Leila ("night" is a cool meaning to me) and I find Lilith to be at least multi-faceted and interesting, but Delilah just feels tawdry to me.

Dahlia. I love the -hl sound and the frilly-yet-spunky vibe.Gwen

Delilah is a solid name but, compared to Dahlia, it comes off as a little less serious and more flirty/lightweight, and personally I'm just usually not a big fan of that double-L lilah/layla/lola/lily style, which screams cutesy for me.
Dahlia, despite being a flower name, seems more interesting, dark, and dignified.

Dahlia, for all reasons listed above. It's more intriguing, has lovely, mysterious vibe, and rolls of the tongue well.19 year old name lover with impeccable taste (◡‿◡✿)
