Lilia is a feminine name originating from the Latin word “Lilium” meaning “lily”. However, the Latin version of the name itself derives from the Greek term “Leirion”. In Greek Mythology, the lily is associated with Hera—the goddess of fertility and protector of women—which offers a mystical, powerful quality to the name. The lily is an elegant flower, so it is only fitting that it is said to symbolize purity and beauty. Whether baby decides to take after Hera and become an advocate for women or chooses to embody the larger-than-life nature of the flower, this name will be sure to inspire them!
