What do you think?

We find out the baby's sex in 3 weeks. DH & I love the name Delilah Jade. Lilah (lie-la) for a nn.

What do you think? I know about Delilah in the bible- it doesn't bother me, but I have had a few negative reactions from people, but this is a name i love!

Any name Tom Jones sings about is good enough for me!

Ah Tom....

I much prefer just Lila. The Tom Jones song is one of the major reasons I'm against Delilah.

Jade is NMS.

I don't mind it but I think Delilah Jane goes a bit better.

I prefer Lila/Lilah itself. Nicer meaning, cooler sound, a bit less trying-to-be-provocative.

Lila(h) Jade would be much more appealing to me than Delilah Jade.

I don't mind Jade. I do find it a bit of a slightly naughty name and I would use it to loosen up a prim name (other end of the scale... Agnes Jade...?) but I would not double-down with a Delilah/Jezebel/Roxy sort of dancing girl name. Delilah, if that's the name you love, could use a more classic name to ground it.

I really dislike Delilah sorry OP. It reminds me of the song and not in a good way.

What about Jada?

I'm not keen on the Delilah Jade combo, to be honest.  

A jade for me (nerdy historical fiction reader that I am) is a non flattering term for a 'fallen woman'.  It's kind of like a hussy or harlot, not quite in the vicinity of a s*ut).  Anyway generally I'd disregard that as historical trivia, but then in conjuction with the biblical story of Delilah, it's a bit much for me.  

So I'd change the middle name to something else, maybe Jane?  Or alternatively use just Lila Jade.

Sorry, not something I would call my daughter in a million years. That is unless I didn't mind inflicting pain on her.

It might be a cutesy name for a 2 year old, but honestly, a teen? a woman? with that name.

I would have hated my parents to call me Delilah.

I love the name Jade - Delilah is not really my style but  I dont mind it.

however I cant see why on earth the name Delilah should inflict any more pain than any other random name - cant see why it is only suited to 2 year olds either - as PP's pointed out it was title of a Tom Jones song - pretty sure he was singing about an adult woman, not a toddler original.gif

Love Delilah!
Don't love Jade it's a little 80's for me but certainly not offensive original.gif
