    Lila?

    Hi i love the name Lila but live in australia where every name has a nickname and am worried about the nickname Lie and the fact that it has Lie in it. What do you all think?

    Re: Lila?

    My nephew's daughter is named Dahlila (strange spelling I know) and they call her Lila. If you love the name Lila, Delilah or or something similar would be a good choice to get the nickname of Lila. And I wouldn't worry about Li or Lie as a nickname; I don't think anyone would have a negative association with it and it still sounds cute!

    I live in California and know about 15 Lila's pronounced LYla and none have the nickname LIE. My daughter is Lila pronounced leela and she has no nickname.

    I think that Lila is beautiful, but I think the Lie nickname (which I've never heard) would bother me, too. She could always go without the nickname, though! I grew up with a Lila who has gone by her full name her entire life. (I love the Delilah idea, too.)

    Good luck! :-)
