Lilja is my ultimate favorite name for a girl.
One of my favorite names.
I absolutely love this name, and it works very well in the first language of me or my parents. But I worry English speaking people would say Lil-cha or something....
It can also be pronounced "LEE-lee-a" and "LEEL-ya"
An Icelandic name that is soft, easy to say and has a more common and easily identified nickname (Lily) that would age really well. (For those that don't know the name is pronounced "Lil-ya")
