As a flower, the lily symbolizes purity and innocence. But in a bouquet of flower names for girls, Lily still stands out as the most popular bloom. Parents can pick from various spellings, from Lilly to Lillie, and use it to form compound names like Lily-Rose or Tigerlily. Lily is sometimes seen as a pet form of Elizabeth. Celebrity parents from Johnny Depp to Kate Beckinsale have plucked this lovely name for their own daughters, and it does not look like Lily will lose its crown to Rose, Violet or Daisy any time soon.
