Re: Which name do you like best?

ETA: a few more names

Unfortunately, once you asked about pronunciation, I couldn't remember how I first thought of Lila. Both pronunciations are pretty, but I don't care for either of them with Lynn. Too many L sounds.

If you're intersted, I know someone named Lida (Lye-dah), which is very similar but eliminates on of the L sounds.

There are also other ways to try and go with the name Laura. You could pick names with similar "au" vowel sounds (Maureen, Doreen, Doris, surely there are more. ETA: Courtney, Riordan, Coral), or the -ra ending (Clara, Sara, Avera, Tara or Terra, more), or a name with something combined with L (Eliza, Claudia, Chloe, Alyssia/Alicia, Alana, Sl

Also, Camilla/Camilla, Celeste, and Paula have strong L sounds despite not starting with L.

Re: Which name do you like best?

I like lila (pronounced Lyela) it sounds the best with the nicest flow.....I think that Leah does not sound nice paired with the middle name you've chosen.

Well I had a great grandma named Lilah and she pronounced it Lee Lah. I voted for Lucy though.

Re: Which name do you like best?

I say both Lye lah. I think Lynn is a bit to rhymey for my taste though. Lucy Lynn is the only one that isn't so bad.

I like all the first names though.

Re: Which name do you like best?

I like Lucy. And I would pronounce "Lila," as "Lie-luh."
