I have completely fallen in love with this name. It’s beautiful and feels that it would suit a child of mixed ancestral heritage which what my child would be. I haven’t found out the sex as of yet but if my baby is a girl I’m almost certain her name will be Lilia. This name makes me smile

Lilia's a nice name although I perfer the spelling Lilje ( the German spelling ) It will most likely cause lots of confusion in the U.S.

Seriously considering this name. Like the similar sound to Lydia and Livia. Think this has a fresher sound than Lily, but has the option of using Lily as nn, although I prefer the nn Lia.
