Okay, so My Lo's name is/was going to be lilyana rachelle but I'm having second thoughts... For some reason no one knows how to say lilyana or acts confused when I tell them her name. I think I just want to stick with lily rachelle...does that sound okay? My hubby says it doesnt sound as good as lilyana but he is up for whatever.

We were just going to call her lily even if her name was lilyana, and my MiL dosent like it period.

What are some more middle names???

These were our options
Lilyana rachelle
Lily rachelle
Lilyana Renee
Lily Renee

Re: Help with my bAbygirls name!!

I'm unsure why people are having a hard time pronouncing Lilyana. I think you should go with the name that you love and not worry about what people think (easier said than done as other people's opinions can make you doubt what your own preferences are sometimes). But anyway... I agree with PP, I like:

Lilyana Rachelle -or-
Lily Renee

Re: Help with my bAbygirls name!!

I think replacing the Y in Lilyana with an I will make it much easier for people, although you still end up with the question of two L's or two N's. It's a very flowery name with some variations, so there are bound to be questions at the least about the spelling. I think it's absolutely fine to use the name Lily with a Y even if there is no Y in the original name.... think Dave/David, Gabby/Gabriella, Annie/Ann, Molly or Meg or Peg for Margaret, and on and on.

Also, I have met a few Rochelle's, none that I see their name spelled often or even see them often, and I honestly never know if their name is Rachelle or Rochelle. There is a slight difference in pronunciation, which I never notice in casual conversation and then I'm left wondering which is their exact name.

What about just Lily? Lidya, Layla, and Lillian are also similar and shorter. Arianna is also similar, although I know one and never know if the first syllable is like "air" or "ahr". I know her mom hates it when people get it wrong, but I think I and many others often do.

I also know two Mira's, if you like that, and one Mirabella, which I think means beautiful in Italian.

For Rochelle, if you use it as a middle name, I don't think problems will come up much, but if you want alternatives, what about Rachel, Raquel, Giselle, Michelle?

Re: Help with my bAbygirls name!!

I have the same problem w/ my baby's name. When people see it, they get confused. It's just two names put together! (Her name is BreaLee.) So I just capitalized the first letter in the second part and people understood a lot better. So maybe LilyAna? PS LOVEEE that name.
