Oh, right!

A conversation which I wished did take place:


#1: Hello, little girl. What's your name?
#2: Her name is Lil'lian
#1: Lillian?
#2: Yes, I named her because our surname is Lian
#1: I see. So, it would be embarassing if you start to call her Ah Lian?
#2: Yes, thats right. And we have a problem with her younger sister too
#1: Oh,why is that?
#2: Her name is Lian also
#1: So how did you solve this problem?
#2: Considering she is the youngest of the two, we call her Lil'Lian Two.

I wonder how this sounds if someone else can convert this to Hokkien, and other dialects
