    Honouring Lily

    So I have asked for ways to honour and now I'm pretty happy with my responses and thought I would ask which Lily honour name you prefer - it's honouring someone called Lily.

    I choose my favourites but need help narrowing it down. This will most likely be in the first name spot!

    In order of preference:
    1. Lilia
    2. Lillian
    3. Lilith
    4. Lilac

    The connection of Lilac to Lily seems a lot weaker to me. Yes, they share the first three letters, but they are pronounced quite differently.

    Oh groovy! I was feeling maybe it had become dated in the naming community

    That is very true. I guess I connected them by the letters as you said and that they are both flowers. I think I might reconsider Lilac - I think I added it as I was too *heart eyed* about the name being suggested as I love the flower and I love painting - purples are my favourite to paint with when doing abstract expression.
