The name Lilly is a girl's name of English origin. Lilly is ranked #161 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Gorgeous Flower Names for Babies and discussed in our forums with posts like "Baby a Day".
From the experts:
Lilly may contain one L too many for some people, though this secondary spelling of a name that's become wildly popular is still a popular choice. And the Lilly spelling does feel a bit less wispy, a bit more like a name as opposed to a mere flower, than the slender and delicate Lily. Lilly suggests the long form Lillian, but it doesn't need to be an abbreviation for anything; Lilly can stand on its own.
However, if you love the flower name but want to make it a little different, you've got to move far beyond Lilly -- or Lillian, Liliane and sisters. You might consider Susannah, which means lily, or a more exotic bloom like Azalea or Lotus.
