Lillian is a baby girl name of Latin origin, derived from the word "Lilium," which means "lily". The name is associated with purity, as lilies are delicate flowers that symbolize peace, passion, and rebirth. Lillian is primarily a female name, but there are French variants, such as Lilian, which can be used for males. The name gained popularity in the early 1700s with the spread of the French colonial empire and has been a popular choice for centuries. Notable figures with the name Lillian include actress Lillian Gish, a pioneer of the silent film era, and civil rights activist Lillian Smith, a prominent voice in the American South during the mid-20th century.
