Am I making a mistake with Delilah ?!
So after months of thinking and deciding on my daughters name we have decided on Delilah Grace. My Sons name is Archie Jack. I particularly like Lilah but my OH likes Delilah better so have agreed she will be Delilah and nn Lilah! Although I am not paticularly religious I have been Christened so has my OH and so we got out Son christened. However after writing on forums about the name Delilah some people were dead against it because of its biblical meaning! I was actually unaware of this and so are many of my friends and family and all seem to love the name. I am now worried though that I am making a mistake if I was to get her christened too or she got married in a church one day would she be looked down on because of her name! Help! Thought is decided with only 3 weeks left now I'm worried!

I honestly love the name Delilah and seeing as you got outside opinions from friends and family and they were all supportive, I wouldn't worry too much about it.
I think the worry about the name is relative to the environment that you live in and there doesn't seem to be any problems where you live.
I grew up in a religious family (my granny always took us to church) but I am not a practising Catholic so for me it is not an issueI like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.

id never use it do to the meaning, which is pretty well known.
however it is lovely and gotten lots of good press due to the Plain White T's song
i like Delilah and Lilah, but i dont like Lilah as a nickname for Delilah - feel its a name that doesnt need a nickname, Lilah somehow changes the whole feeli do not ignore the Rich Text toolbar provided me. i bold, italicize, enlarge, underline and CAPITALIZE for emphasis, individuality, and to capture attention among the endless Arial Standard Size Font that everyone else uses.
i am not screaming nor will i cosset you. i do this to highlight the most important aspect of my thoughts so they are not lost again in the never ending sea of tiny, black, tempered letters that make up forums everywhere.
~*~ i encourage you to do the same ~*~
