Lillian "Lily" wouldn't work for us, and neither would the vintage names with modern nicknames. I don't like popular names at all: I grew up with a very popular name and always had several other Ellies in my classes at school and it was so annoying. When I announce my baby's name, I want people to think "Oh, that's cool" rather than "oh, another Lily" or w/e we chose. I want it to be an unusual name that not many people would share, but it has to still be a legitimate name, not madeup. I like Beatrice, but my BF would definitely not go for that. Edward was my grandfather's name, and I never met him so it would be weird to use his name I think. We hate nicknames too, we'd rather just call our child Teddy instead of Theodore, I don't see the point in a longer name if you're going to call them something else anyway.
