and thought it was lovely.

I would never have thought of it before, but this little baby was gorgeous, and so was her name.

Just thought I would share it with you all.

It is very nice. I also like Sybil.

It's beautiful. I love Sybil too, such a shame Fawlty Towers has made it unusable.

Yes Cecilia is lovely. Very soft and feminine.

It is a beautiful name, but I always end up singing the Simon and Garfunkel song when I hear it blush

Love cecilia. Was on the shortlist for dd1 but dh vetoed it. I think St Ceilia was the patron saint of music, which I found lovely. Cece is also a cute nn.

Cecilia is lovely, and so is Sybil. I don't think Faulty Towers has made it unusable - I would use it in a shot.

Cecilia is indeed lovely. But Sybil? Sorry no, it is such an ugly name. Had I been called Sybil I would have down the Deed Poll office as soon as I was old enough to change it! And I have a traditional 'middle class' girl's name that I've never really liked but I thank my lucky stars that I wasn't called Sybil.

Cecilia is very pretty. Patron saint of music too.

DS would probably have been Imogen Cecelia if he'd been a girl. Love it!

Cecelia was on my shortlist of 3 when DD was born smile

Its pretty but also makes me think of the song. It is also a bit of a granny/ old fashioned name and not in a nice way where I'm from.

I love that, plus I love Celia.

DH didn't like it though hmm

Nice name but the meaning would put me off (latin blind).

Not keen because it sets off that annoying song in my head

but I really like Cecily and Celia.
