Adding to the family with another child is a significant change, exciting, and full of possibilities.
Now you have a new bundle of joy on the way, and your son or daughter will have a sibling to play (and fight) with.
You obviously want to choose a name for your new child that you love. But, when you have multiple children, you also need to consider how their names sound together. Especially if you ever have to fuss at all of them simultaneously — the names need to roll off the tongue naturally. (Just kidding.)
People spend tons of time searching books and online for the perfect baby name. But, it can get overwhelming trying to find a great name that also is a good sibling match.
So with that in mind, here are the best sibling names for a girl named Lily.
I’ve compiled these from baby name databases, parent discussion forums, and other sources, then whittled them down to the ones I personally think sound the best.
Hope it helps!

A lot of these ideas come from real parents of real Lilys who have been kind enough to share their sibling names or at least their runners-up. I’ve also thrown in a few ideas of my own.
25 sister names for Lily
My favorite name for Lily’s brother is Lucas, and my favorite name for Lily’s sister would have to be Rose.
I like the alliteration of Lucas and Lily and how Rose and Lily share the flower theme. There are so many choices, though, so you should pick the ones that sound the best to you!
