I just think this is so cute. It's been 15 years since the movie came out and I love this name even more now then 15 years ago.

The disney movie is a lovely association though and only the tabloids call her Lilo and I'm pretty sure it's been 2 years since they did.

ThistleThorn Says:


I love Lilo and Stitch!

Lilosh262 Says:


My name is Lilo, and I used to get a lot of, "Hey, Lilo, where's Stitch?" type of comments, but they're weren't exactly rude. I think that if you name your baby Lilo now, by the time she's in school that association might have faded out. It's a nice name that I like having, but it can feel annoying to have to spell it out to people who are writing it down or whatnot, or constantly being called LIE-LO.

Frankie Says:


This could have more subtle usage as a nickname for Lieslotte, Lilac, Liliana, or any of the other Lily names.

Giinkies Says:


I associate this name with the Disney film and Lindsay Lohan.

Sweekune Says:


I love this name! However, I would have to think carefully about using it as I can see most people associating with the girl from the Disney film.
