This is also a Hungarian name (pronounced like "Leela"), usually a nickname for Lídia, Lívia, and names like that.

EvaThyssen Says:


I prefer Lilla to Lila.

Kellen_Claire Says:


Simple, soft, and sweet. I can't point out a single flaw with this name!

maibritt Says:


I love it. I think it also makes a great nickname.

EW314 Says:


Lilla is very pretty, and feels more sophisticated (along the lines of Lillian) than cutesy (like Lilly). Lil is a sweet nickname too.

I don't see what the problem with the l's is - Lilly has just as many and that seems to have been a hit!

Jennish Says:


My daughter's name is Lily but we call her Lilla a lot, I think it's a pretty name. :)

rie Says:


I prefer Lila, but this is definitely second choice!!! I can see this becoming more popular, lovely name.

madmaddie Says:


I like it much more than Lily (or Willa or Lila, like the description suggests)! It's softer.

Paige_Mackenzie Says:


I think this name is beautiful and such a good option in a world full of Lillys, Lilys, and Lylas!

Why is this such a bad choice? To read your description this is an awful name, which I do not think it deserves.

CocoWhite Says:


A fresh alternative to Lily, albeit a bit of a tongue-twister.
