I'm so glad we waited to pick a name because all of a sudden this name just feels right. It didn't 6 months ago but now it does (still could change at the birth I guess), but now I need a middle name. DH and I tend to like traditional, older names but I'm tempted to go with something totally different. The only two we've discussed are
Lily Claire and Lily Grace. Any other ideas?

Love both of those...I was going to use Grace a the middle name if this baby had been a girl, but Lily Claire also goes really nicely together. If you don't have a preference between them, maybe you'll decide once you see her?

Lily Claire and Lily Grace are both beautiful. Also just depends on how many syllables your last names has so her full name has a nice ring to it.....

Some more ideas for you off the top of my head........
Lily Katharine
Lily Marie
Lily Anne
Lily Violet (if you love flowers )
Lily Suzanne or Suzanna
Lily Therese (not a)

Depending on your last name I think Lily Fay sounds nice. Or Lily Irene. I'd suggent choosing a few that you like, then weigh out what they all mean. The meaning of a name is nearly as important as the name itself.

Thanks for the good ideas! I love Lily Violet but I don't know if that is flower overkill! I think we'll wait until we see her!

Well Lily Mae comes to mind but that is because I have one

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

I like Lily Claire the best. Grace is super-common as a middle name these days. It's the new "Marie".

I hate my middle name Marie! EVERYONE has it!

I absolutely LOVE Lily Claire, and I really really like Lily Jane, too. Hope to see what you decide!

I'd probably go with a longer, more substantial name to balance out Lily's short sweetness.

Lily Catherine/ Lily Katherine
Lily Elisabeth
Lily Valentina
Lily Matilda
Lily Sophia (Sophia is our choice for a girl )
Lily Charlotte

Grace and Claire are both nice. We were going to use Grace as a mn [it's dh's mother's name], but it has become SO common (like a pp said the new 'Marie') that we're not going to use it anymore.

I like Lily with middle names that have 2 or more syllables. I always think of "Lily Marlene" (pronounced Mar-lane) from that Leonard Cohen song. I love that name.

We chose one (I think)-
Lily Eloise
I really love it and I love that it is less common! I'm a reading specialist in an elementary school so the joke is that I couldn't get away from children's lit-
Lily (and purple plastic purse)
and Eloise (at the plaza hotel)!
thanks for the help!!!!
