What do you think of this double barrelled name?

Lily-Emma? 

Hyphen or no hyphen? Both family names. Love Lily but too common as first name so wanted it mix it up! Our other choice: Emma Ivy

    I am not keen on two first names whether barreled or not. But I prefer it without hyphen if both are used as first names.

    Depends on the name, hyphen or not... I think with no hyphen it tends to be assumed they are stand alone names rather than meant to be said together. I'm not a fan of Lily-Emma or Emma-Ivy; the Emma is just out of place so either use Emma and something else or Lily or Ivy and something else. Emma-Rae, Emma-Lee, Emma-Grace, Lily-Grace, Lily-Anne, Lily-Jo, Ivy-Grace, Ivy-Mae, Ivy-Jo

    NO hyphen.  Hyphens are worthless.  I think Lily Emma is really cute.

    I like it but without the hyphen. Emma Ivy is cute too, and I also like Ivy Emma!

    Emma Ivy - 1

    Lily Emma (hyphenated or not) is much better than Emma Ivy. I'd try Liliana or something too... Lily Emma is fine, but I don't think she'll end up being called by her full first name anyway - so what's the point? Popularity is such a silly thing to worry about in my opinion. Lily is a great name!

    It would be better without the hyphen.

    Lily -Emma : I hate hyphenated names and it doesn’t sound good . Why not try something like Leilani it uncommon and you could use lily as a nickname.  Emma ivy doesn’t flow and Emma is more common than Lily

    I heard hyphens can be an issue sometimes in the system, it might be safer to go with Lily Emma. But I dont really love these names together, they are beautiful on their own but dont flow well as a pair. Emma Ivy is much nicer.
