Lazuli is way better. I don't like the name Lapis because of the "piss" part.

Mhill46 Says:


Strongly prefer Lazuli to this.

lizway Says:


Lapis is a horrible thing to do to a child. The "piss" in it is super teaseworthy :(

RoddyThlayli Says:


I like Lazuli better. Lapis just sound kind of weird as a name.

Koilada Says:


I think this is a lovely name, but the "piss" sound in the final syllable might lend to some teasing potential, which is a shame. It is also close to the the French word, 'Lapin,' meaning "Rabbit," which is a less tease-worthy equivalent if you like the sound of Lapis.

If you want to name your daughter after this beautiful gemstone without some possible repercussions, then perhaps you'd rather use Lazuli.
