    Lilja and Luna

    Hi Do you think these are simply guilty pleasure names? And could you pronounce Lilja?

    I've always had a soft spot for these 2 names... What do you think?

    Definitely don't think these are guilty pleasure names, they're definitely usable, and they're both very pretty. I'd pronounce Lilja as Lil-ya

    I think both are useable. I also think Lilja would be said lil-yah

    Really?
    So, Luna doesn't make you think of Luna-tic or Loony?

    I thought English speaking people would pronounce Lilja like Lil-cha or something.

    Huh, cool Thank you for answering.

    Luna is quite an established name nowadays, and so while those things may be picked up on, I think most people would just think of it as a nice name. Luna is ranked 110th in the States, and it's popularity has been increasing over the last 10-ish years. In England in 2014, it was ranked 146th. Lilja is much more unusual and might face pronunciation issues, but I think a lot of people know that "ja" is often pronounced as ya
