We are trying to decide on a name for our little girl - due in the next 7 weeks. Lily is a family name that both my husband & I love. It will probably be what we call our little girl, but I'm worried that it is too simple (when I think of her becoming an adult) or too popular.
Originally we were going to name her Lily Anne - then I googled & found the song "Demon You Lily Anne." (Although I've never heard the song) - This was very disturbing! I mean, who wants their little girl called a demon?
So here are our options - Lily (too simple?)
Lilianne (will it be pronounced well?)
Lilyanne (too different?)
Lilian (too old?)
Middle names: Elizabeth,Anne, Marie, (family names of people we would love to honor) or possibly Annemarie or Grace. Thank you for your help!

Anyway, I don't think Lily is too simple on its own - it is elegant in a simple way. I don't care for Lilianne or Lilyanne, but Lillian, with its traditional spelling, is fine. However, I don't think this necessarily makes the name more fitting of an adult. Lily is perfectly suitable for a girl of any age in my opinion!
Lily Elizabeth - though this has a heavy "li" sound - or Lily Marie are my favorites, but you could do Lily Marielle (to honor Marie and Elizabeth), Lily Mariana (to honor Marie and Anne), or Lily Graciela (to honor Grace and Elizabeth)."Names, once they are in common use, quickly become mere sounds, their etymology being buried, like so many of the earth's marvels, beneath the dust of habit." - Salman Rushdie

I love the name Lily, but it is getting really popular. Lillian isn't too old at all; I believe it's actually in the current top 100 in the US. This is my favorite of your choices-- it's classy, pretty, and will age well. I really wouldn't name her Lilyanne-- it seems cutesy and made up. Liliane is the French version of Lillian-- maybe you'd prefer that spelling? Also, I love the name Liliana! Another possibility is Lilia, which I think is gorgeous. For the middle names, I really like Lily Anneliese-- that way, you get to honor Anne and Elizabeth at the same time. Good luck!cordelia ~ jessamine ~ alice ~ louisa ~ maeve ~ julia ~ eloise ~ fiona ~ genevieve
