To begin with, I would never pronounce Lila Lee-lah. Ick. It is definitely Lie-lah.
Of your choices, I like Lily Simone the best. Simone is not my favorite, but that combo sounds the best to my ears. But I agree with some previous posters, that with Farmer you should probably rule out Lily altogether. Definitely sounds like an occupation. Hi, I'm a lily farmer.
I adore Lila Colette, which others have suggested. As soon as I read that you like Lila it popped into my head, and I think it is perfection.Ladies

I really love both Lily and Lila! In general, I prefer Lily to Lila, but I've been really loving Lila today. I like Lily Catherine and Lila Josephine the best. I agree with @stripedsocks in regards to Colette--it's not a favorite of mine, either, but I agree that Lily Colette sounds much better (I was thinking the Colettily thing, too!).

Lila is lovely! I agree with most that Lily Farmer would maybe cause some chuckles, although believe me there's worse last names. I'm Belgian and speak Dutch, and an ex had the last name Van Achter, which means 'from behind' in Dutch. You're doomed with whatever name you pick then .
Don't be too worried about people saying lee-la, most people will more than likely say lai-la, it's the most common pronunciation. And if they do say it wrong, one correction and they'll remember.
