i dont think theree is a correct spelling to a name, just different ones. I personally like Lillia for that one. I think its pretty actually, My daughter is a lillian

Names are based off of etymology - parts of language, yes there are correct ways to spell them. You look like an illiterate derp if you don't spell a name correctly.

Lilia would be best here in the states, don't add the H on the end, it changes the pronunciation and you need to follow the rules of phonetics.



Lilia / Lilja / Lilya are all Eastern European forms of Lily. Pronounced Leel-ya.



Lilia is best here in the states and people will likely say it as lily-ah.

Liliah would be lil-eye-ah, not lily-ah.

And it makes them look like an illiterate derp. Like I said - names have spellings for a reason, they are based off of parts of language. It's the same (worse than) purposefully misspelling words.

Usually behindthename - but they have been going down the toilet this past year.



See, babynamesworld was meant to be really good before it was bought out by parents connect, I used to belong to the community - they had legit name experts going through and fixing the database, but they never finished and it stands half done with a bunch of crap still floating around it.
