Baby name Lilith

Any thoughts on the name Lilith? It sounds and looks so beautiful to me but the meaning is so dark I don’t know if I could ever truly consider it.

Lilith originated in Jewish mythology, and was the name of a dangerous demon of the night. Other websites say the name directly means “of the night”. What do you all think?

  • I honestly like it. I personally don’t care about name meanings unless there’s a more recent pop culture reference that is negative. I don’t think anyone is going to go...”you named her Lilith? Do you know what that name MEANS?!” 

    Lillian is super popular right now, so there may be a lot of similarly named kiddos to her if that bothers you. 
  • I'd be more concerned about associations than the meaning of a name unless the meaning has some significance to you personally. 
    I think it's cute but Lilly and Lillian are quite popular. Don't think I know a Lilith.

  • Sorry but before I even opened this thread, I cringed at Lilith. I immediately associate the name with the biblical demon. It’s right up there with naming your kid Lucifer or Cain.

    I like Lilia better
  • Are you Jewish? Like would it come up or create a problem culturally?

    Also, I don't know if "The Devils Arithmetic" is required reading in schools anymore, but "Lilith's Cave" was not a happy place.. 
  • Sorry, can’t not associate it with the the whole demon aspect. Better off choosing another name. 
  • I had no idea of the meaning but my first association was Lilith Fair.

    Honestly I don’t really like the lispy sound of it. If she doesn’t love her full name she might end up going by Lily which is very popular.

    Am I the only one who thought of Cheers? I must be getting old. Lilith was Frasier’s wife on Cheers and she was kind of an awkward person.

  • @mercury94 My first thought was from Frasier. :):) 
  • Yep, Lilith Crane is always my first thought.
