Any thoughts on this name or potential second names? Our surname has a lot of syllables..

You're breaking my heart.

Cecilia is how I would expect it to be spelt. Lovely name. ❤️

rainbownights Mon 05-Feb-18 16:36:51

oops
Oh Cecilia, I'm down on my knees

Squ1ggle Mon 05-Feb-18 16:38:07

Can also be spelt Cecilia

I don't associate it with the song at all. It's lovely but a bit prissy.

GreatDuckCookery Mon 05-Feb-18 16:41:56

I prefer Cecily. Cecelia is a bit hard sounding to me.

barbitarojo Mon 05-Feb-18 16:42:23

it's a lovely name and I wouldn't associate with the song, the songs old, I'm not.

I know one adult Cecelia and she has a surprising amount of trouble with people saying/spelling her name remotely correctly.

It's a lovely name, but that might be worth considering.

Pemba Mon 05-Feb-18 16:51:47

It's a pretty name, and unusual. I think it's spelled Cecilia though. What would you call her for short - Sissy, Celie or Cece (sp?) or something else?

BubbleFrog Mon 05-Feb-18 16:52:35

Yes i think Cecilia is better.

Other possible contenders are Beatrice or Emilia (but DH least favourite)

FishFingerPie Mon 05-Feb-18 16:53:49

Beautiful name (as is Cecily) - on my list of names I wish I'd used!!

winterwonderly Mon 05-Feb-18 16:55:05

What about Celia? That's what I would have called our second child if she wasn't a boy!

mistermagpie Mon 05-Feb-18 16:56:02

We considered it had DS1 been a boy. I like the nickname cece for a little girl. I think I prefer just Celia though thinking about it, Cecily is too close to Cecil for me!

mistermagpie Mon 05-Feb-18 16:56:40

Obviously I mean had DS1 been a girl!

Frazzled2207 Mon 05-Feb-18 17:20:59

Love Cecelia but I do think of the song!

Came across a Cecily once which is lovely too.

TatianaLarina Mon 05-Feb-18 17:28:50

Beautiful name.

CandyYumYum Mon 05-Feb-18 17:44:21

I love Cece as a nickname but find Cecilia itself a bit too prissy.

CandyYumYum Mon 05-Feb-18 17:44:40

And I definitely think of the song!

wilts09 Mon 05-Feb-18 17:49:18

I love it. My girl would have been Cecelia if DH allowed it! Cee cee is just so cute as a little nickname too grin

I remember Chris Eubank doing a presenter slot on Top of The Pops years ago and announcing "Here's Thethelia by Thuggs".
A nightmare for any one with a lisp.
Put me off the name

it's a lovely name and I wouldn't associate with the song, the songs old, I'm not.

Mid twenties here and all I hear is the song when I see the name.

Cecilia is lovely. I also like Cecily and Cicely.
