JanePurdy Wed 18-Dec-13 19:27:25

I would pronounce lilyAHna.

BetterWithCranberryWensleydale Wed 18-Dec-13 19:31:15

I love it but would pronounce as Jane suggests

Witchesbrewandbiscuits Wed 18-Dec-13 19:31:33

yeah I thought that.

Witchesbrewandbiscuits Wed 18-Dec-13 19:32:47

you can spell it lillianna which I guess would be the lily anna pronunciation but I think thats a bit long winded.

Rosencrantz Wed 18-Dec-13 19:34:31

Regardless of pronunciation, I think it's bloody awful.

Sounds like a hula dancer.

RibenaFiend Wed 18-Dec-13 19:35:09

I find it a bit too frilly. I love Lilias, the Scottish version of Lilian though.

I wouldn't choose it!

I know a lovely Liliana - she's Romanian, think it is more popular in eastern Europe.

I also know a Liliana and it's definitely pronounced 'Lilly-arna'. You'd have to change the spelling if you were set on your chosen pronunciation, OP.

I like it but agree with the pronunciation everyone else has said. You would need to change the spelling for the pronunciation...but then I'm not sure it works?

Yes, too frilly.

Lily is still a gorgeous name, a bit overused a few years ago but I think its a classic.. Liliana is definitely and literally gilding the lily.

Depends where you live re the pronunciation, I would pronounce the spelling given as lily anna. However we are in Scotland and we dont add in an extra "r" where none exists. I am sure we have our other faults though fgrin

yes I too much prefer the classic lily but with a colour surname it wouldnt work sad

good job its just for fun or I would never settle on a name hee hee.

HyvaPaiva Thu 19-Dec-13 11:18:29

exactly what soontobe said fgrin

MistleToastyStoHoHoat Thu 19-Dec-13 11:45:38

I love it. Pretty without being frilly, unusual without being weird.

ToffeeJungle Thu 19-Dec-13 12:37:45

I prefer Lilian.

Also know of a Liana and a Leanna.
