Is Lilian (with one middle "L"!) completely unrealistic?
I love Lilian/Lillian regardless, and generally I convince myself to go for the more classic, more common Lillian spelling, but Lilian does rank, and I've always found it more beautiful, more feminine, more reminiscent of the lily-flower connection that I adore so much. Is it completely unrealistic in America (or really, any country?), though? I feel like it would automatically be spelled Lillian, and while I love Lillian, too, Lilian has that edge for me.
Are there any other Lilian lovers out there? I've really been loving Lilian Charlotte Elise today, but if it's a terrible idea, I'd like to stop it before the crush goes too far... (And yeah, yeah, I know about the whole Lillian/Elise thing. I'm not even sure I'd let myself use it, but I am really loving it today!)Ashley

With so many different spellings of the same names (ex Kayley, Kaylee, Kailey...) I don't really see the problem. She may have to spell her name out, but it shouldn't be that bad. Lilian should work. It isn't like Elizabeth vs. Elisabeth, I don't feel Lillian/Lilian has reached that state of popularity of one spelling over another yet. Personally, I like the look of Lillian better than Lilian, but that's just me. Lilian is lovely.Just another teenberry and writer, a lover of names
