Hey all, what are your thoughts on the first names Lilia or Isadora? With middle name Abigail? Pretty set on the middle name but not so sure about the first name ideas. We tend to like traditional but uncommon for a first name. We have a son named Eli. Thanks!

I love all three names independently! I’m big on the “flow” of a name, so putting all of the vowels right next to each other would bother me, because it sounds choppy to me. “Abigail Isadora” would be the only combo I’d personally consider, but I love the name Lillia!!!!

Abigail Isidora flows best!

I too like the names that flow, and I too think Abigail Isadora sound the best! =)

Lilia is beautiful, but not with Abigail following. Same with Isadora. Abigail Isadora works. Not sure about Eli and Lilia together.

I have an Abigail so I’m partial to it as the first name.

Thanks all! I’m in agreement with the flow which i think it’s why we’re having some hesitation on the name choices. And yes, Eli and Lilia is kind of a mouthful…hmm. it’s nice to know others feel the same though! Kinda gives us more reason to keep rethinking names.

I prefer the spelling of Isidora, not isadora (my classmate would be teased a lot in elementary school with “Is a door – a”) but my favorite out of those options is plain Abigail

I wouldn’t worry at all about how the middle name ‘flows’ with the first name unless you are planning to address/call her by both all the time. I don’t think middle names are euphonically important
l LOVE Lilia as a first name. Isadora is nice too but keep its proper spelling. Sorry to disagree but messing with spelling doesn’t make children stop joking about the way it sounds – and often it obscures the name’s etymology/meaning. shellzbellz :

shellzbellz : I really like the rhythm of Isadora Abigail. Sounds like a poem to me.
Is Lilia pronounced like Lily-uh? Or Lil-yuh? Lie-lee-uh? I love the usual variations of Lily and Lillian but am not a fan of Lilia. Pronunciation is not intuitive and it reminds me of milia, which I get sometimes and they drive me nuts.

Daisy_Mae : It’s pronounced “lily-uh”. I do worry that since it’s uncommon people may have a hard time with pronounciation. I’d like the name to be straightforward but not super common. Also, while I’d thought about the association with “Is a door a…” I hadn’t thought about the association with milia.

elderbee : I completely agree about not worrying too much about how the middle name “flows” as it’s going to be so rarely said/used. We love the flow of our son’s name combo (Eli Dawson) but it seems forced when we use the middle name, lol. So yeah, while I may pick a middle name that becomes a mouthful when said with the first name, in reality it’s not going to be an issue. I still like nice flow to a name, but maybe it’s more important to pick two names that are special. IMO at least. To each their own!
