    Question Lilac for a girl ... WDYT ??

    Hi all,



    Was reading the birth column in our local paper yesterday and came across a newborn baby girl named " LILAC "

    I'm not sure if it sounds like a pretty name or of a harder sounding name ... for some reason i'm swinging towards more pretty (i think) !!

    Can't say i would use it myself but was curious to know your thoughts on this name ... And has anyone ever come across ' first names ' the same as a colour ??

    Cheers from a bit of an unusual name lover xox

    Not sure on it for a name, but I do love Lila.

    Yeah, there used to be a nurse at my work called Lilac. She wasn't very popular.

    I've met a Golden and a Silver (both girls) and a Midori (Japanese for green) I'm sure there's been more.

    Truthfully, I think it's a bit wishy-washy. I'm sorry...

    I too actually don't mind it...but could never use it myself (cause I'm a big fan of purple, so it would be a little weird and I would get lots of strange comments I'm sure).

    I knew a lady once who's daughters name was Amethyst and I also knew a girl call Onyx too....both I also think sound ok.

    hmmmmmmm................ dunno...........

    I think I kind of like it. It's missing something.

    A boy was born near me recently and his middle name is Anzac.

    Personally I think the letter 'c' on the end makes it sound a bit hard. I much prefer Lila/Lilah.

    As for colour names- there was that guy on Australian Idol named 'Teal' (my fave colour), and there are many Jade's out there!!

    Well here I go..against the grain as usual

    I LOVE IT!!!!!!

    It was on our Short list for girl names for Mateauz. I would have had a Vyolett and a Lillak (we just spelt it a bit different) so we thought Khryztel was better...doesnt matter cause we ended up with the franks

    But yes I LOVE the name

    I love it too. I think it's lovely, and I think the hard 'c' on the end actually makes it a really good name for an adult, a bit grown up sounding, but the 'i' sound softens it. I think it's cool.

    I've met a Cerise, and obviously heaps of Jades (Jaide, Jaede, etc).. I *love* Lila for a girl, but Lilac.. not so much.
    Good luck
