It’s a smoosh of Lily and Elle. Lily probably started out as an Elizabeth nickname, though now it’s strongly associated with the flower. As for Elle, it’s the French word for “she” but also a nickname for any name starting with El- … so again, Elizabeth! Or Eleanor, Eloise, etc.

Lillyelle is very pretty, but I’m not aware of any specific associations with the name beyond what would attach to Lily/Lilly/Lillie and Elle/Ella.

Your list is amazing. Thank you for all you do! Please, please would you consider writing about the name Camellia? ❤️

I really think u sould have the name Violet. 1:It was very popular in ww1.
And 2:Its a really good name.
I know its named after a girl from charlie and the chocolate factory but plz try 2 put it on there. xxx

Ashton and Quinn should be on there. Oh and don’t foreget Perrie these are my sister and I’s names we just thought you should put these up on here 🙂

Just noticed that you have a post for the name Ida, but it isn’t in this list! It is the name we’re using if this baby turns out to be a girl 🙂

Effie, Flavia, Octavia, and Portia? Looks like someone is a Hunger Games fan! And Primrose appears in the comments. Even Gail (a variant of Gale) appears in the Master List for boys.

Posted this on facebook, but thought I would here, too. I just went to read your write-up of Ruth, but only the first line is showing. I’d be so happy if it could get fixed soon! Thanks!

When I click on the name Lucia the information for the name Lucienne pulls up instead. I love the name Lucia and would love to read more about it. I love your site!

I’m not sure if you still want notice of posts that are not showing up in full, but just in case, the Lavinia post is only displaying the beginning.

When I click on the name Lucia the information for the name Lucienne pulls up instead. I love the name Lucia and would love to read more about it. I love your site!

Tamsin is missing from your list–I see that you have a post about it, but I can’t read the whole thing, it cuts out after a few sentences.

I have a Q for you, an aztec name… Quetzalli
& another U to add to your lone Ursula…. Ulyssa
I’d also be happy to see Fidelity added to the list.. this is my daughter Amara’s middle name. Its familiar as an english word but also linked to Fidel, Fidelia, Fidelis.

I would like to see Ginevra and Primrose. I love Primrose as a Rose alternative! And I love all the vowels in Ginevra!

I would LOVE to see the gentle, feminine, classy Emily on here (popularity issues aside). Some history on this name would be much appreciated, and her literary connections would make for an interesting read. We all no doubt know a few Emilys, and it’s about time some light was shed on this appealing – if ubiquitous – name.

Hey, I have been trying to create categories for my blog. I can’t seem to figure it out or it won’t let me. How did you do this?

Also, you forgot to add Vasare to the Girls list 🙂

Why son’t you have Cerys or Natalie (they are my friend’s names) and maybe Erica and Otricia and Aisling (they are all my friends) maybe my name even (Oliviette but people call me Livy, Livs or Olly!

Great List – I’d love to see what you come up with for “Charlotte” and “Sutton” (as a male name). My husband and I are expecting our first child and do not know the gender and so are still deciding both female and male names. I look forward to any comments you may have.

Could you please do a post on Margaret? It’s mentioned a lot of times but never fully fleshed as far as I can tell. Also Margo! Thanks for considering it.

What about Charlotte? With Kate and Wills’ recent nuptials, it only seems appropriate to revisit a name that has sat on the throne of England, as Kate, or HRH the Duchess Catherine will one day do. 😉

what about the name Lindsey? I like the sound of it! 🙂 Though not so much about the relation with the Lohan actress

Thanks Abby, what a job it must have been!
On a side note: Why is Peregrine on the girls list? When it loads it clearly says “He” & “him”. Might be better to only be on the boys list!
