I plan on using Lilith for one of my future daughters. To be honest, the fact that Lilith, Adam's first wife, refused to submit to him is a pro for me. The woman was then portrayed to be a demon by a male dominated society. I think Lilith is a perfectly usable, beautiful and kick-ass name for a girlName lover

I agree with sweekune. That fact that Lilith wanted to be her own woman seems strong to me, not demonic like the men who wrote the thing portrayed her. I like the name. It's one of my favorite Lil- names.
I know someone whose middle name is Lilith. Her first is Pandora so it's a little too much "bad girl" in one name for me, but it is being used! :P
And my guilty pleasure combo with Lilith is Lilith Hecate (heh-KAY-tee). It sounds awesome but Hecate is a dark goddess and Lilith already has some dark connotations :PMother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^ Call me Dantea or Remy

It's great to see that other don't see it as a really evil name. It's my favorite Lil- name.
Dantea, I absolutely adore Lilith Seraphine. So gorgeous.

I take all Biblical references when it comes to the portrayal of women with a grain of salt. We have to remember that the great book was written by men for men. It was written in a time of extreme patriarchy when woman were the property of the men in the family. Society had a strict code of behaviour and any woman who defied the "rules" suffered the consequences. Lilith was a strong woman and that didn't sit well with the males in charge. Instead of celebrating her strength, the men demonized her (probably in the hope that other women would know their place and not make any trouble). Many females have suffered the same fate over the years. I think Liliith is quite pretty and definitely usable. Lilith Seraphine is gorgeous!
