My first daughter's name is Cecilia but she mostly goes by the nickname Cece. This was alway going to be her name and we didn't even bother coming up with any other names when I was pregnant with her!

I am expecting my second daughter soon and I just can't come up with any names that I love as much (apart from Hazel which my husband hates so that's a definite no sad)

A few names with have come up with are...

Felicity (love, but I don't think it goes well with Cece when said out loud)
Naomi
Florence
Sienna (sounds to similar to Cecilia)
Martha

Nothing is really jumping out at the moment. Please help with a few ideas!

Before I even read your list I thought Felicity! Fliss or Flick and Cece - cute!

Or:
Eloise/Heloise
Helena
Bibi/Bebe (as a nn for Beatrix/Beatrice or Elizabeth)
Phoebe

Cecilia is such a lovely name - I only know one young Cecilia, do you happen to live in Scotland?

I like Juliet, Rosalind, Eleanor and Lydia, and think they match well.

Cecilia is lovely. I love Felicity but agree maybe too similar to Cecilia. Also love Naomi!
How about Cecilia and
Miranda, Imogen, Lydia, Louisa, Madeleine, Susannah, Rosaline/Rosalind, Romilly, Mirabelle, Bethany, Xanthe, Beatrice, Ramona, Alexa/Alexia/Alexandra.
Shame about Hazel, that's lovely!

As soon as I read your DD1's name, I was about to suggest Hazel as they go so well together but then read the rest. Any chance of persuading DH? Hazel is my DD's name so I am biased!

Other thoughts-
Elise
Alice
I love Felicity.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions, we've now added Edith, Agnes and Imogen to the list. It's nice to know that some people think Felicity does go with Cecilia because that is a strong favourite for us. Our surname ends in ss so when you say Cecilia and Felicity ......ss out loud it is a bit of mouthful... I'm saying it over and over though to try and get used to it!
