I’m re-watching Modern Family with my husband since it’s now on Netflix and I adore this TV series, and one name that stands out to me for just how stinkin’ cute, lovely, short, sweet, and lovely it is belongs to Cam & Mitchells’ adopted daughter, Lily.
I don’t know what it is about that name, but it’s pretty damn near perfect. And it’s both perfect when it comes to using it as a full name as well as when it comes to using it as a nickname.
It’s got a lovely ring to it, has an absolutely stunning flower that it comes from, as I mentioned before, which I love about it as well, it’s short and sweet.
Basically I cannot think of a downside to it, unless you’re looking for a completely different type of name, like a more unisex sounding name or a long, complicated name, in which case Lily would obviously not suit your needs.
But as far as short, pretty names that are feminine and flower themed, I actually find it hard to think of one I like more. It beats out “Rose” in my books (which I think sounds too traditional at this point), and has definitely got a slight lead on “Poppy” as well, although Poppy is a pretty name.
If I were to look for a longer flower themed name I loved, Violet would probably be a good pick, but it’s not as versatile a name as Lily, so even then between the two I think I might just have to say Lily is probably my top pick or one of my very top picks when it comes to flower themed names.
But enough of that! Because you stumbled across this article likely for one of two reasons: to find a good nickname for a Lily in your life or to find a good name that can have Lily as a nickname.
I’ve split this article into two sections so those who are looking for name recommendations versus nickname recommendations to each be able to browse quickly through and find what they need.
But I would like to note that if you happen to be looking for a good nickname for a Lily and are happy to use longer names as nicknames, you might also want to take a peek at the second section of names with the nickname Lily. One of those may strike your fancy as a nickname – like using “Lilian,” “Delilah,” or “Talila” as a nickname for a Lily, instead of the other way around.
If you have any recommendations for good nicknames for those with the name Lily, or if you have recommendations for names that Lily would make a great nickname for, please leave your suggestions in the comments down below!
