What do you think? Is it getting popular now?
This is our first choice for this baby.

I think it's lovely and haven't heard it used yet although we did consider it as middle name for our dd who was born in March so I guess there is something in the ether

Very pretty. I haven't heard it round here but I am in South Wales so it takes a while for names to travel down the M4!

CountessDracula Wed 29-Jul-09 22:32:20

lovely but v popular atm in London

hisnibster Thu 30-Jul-09 00:35:27

I like it. I don't know any.

choosyfloosy Thu 30-Jul-09 00:38:22

Love it. Wonderful name.

goodasgold Thu 30-Jul-09 00:38:43

I love it.

I like it unless its shortened. I know one who is 8 and she has gone from Cecily to Cess to Cess Pit hmm.

zazen Thu 30-Jul-09 00:42:42

And celery here.
And, yes, cess is a bad one.

Cecily is a gorgeous name - a classic, as I know women called Cecily of all ages.

A similar sounding name which i love even more is Cicely.

I have gorgeous baby Cecily. It's certainly not popular where we are- infact a lot of people seem to have never heard of it. I can imagine that it is more popular in London. I suppose it depends what you class as popular really. It is a lovely, feminine, classic name.

Yes, another London lady here who has heard it more than once! I liked it, but DH pointed out that as our other daughter is called hermione, we would then have the same children's names as Lawrence L--Bowen!!

It's a beautiful, classic name and I'd love to have used it myself, unfortunately it means 'blind' which put me off sad, DP wasn't that keen anyway.

If you love it go for it! There will always be other children with the same name but it's certainly not overly popular ATM.

I don't like the ss-ss sound of it. Prefer Celia.

Cecily and Cicely are both lovely. I wanted in our shortlist but OH wouldn't have it, an old disliked boss apparently.
Cece (see-see) seems a more natural nn to me.

PavlovtheForgetfulCat Fri 31-Jul-09 12:07:19

I love it. And want it for this baby. But not sure it will suit a boy grin

oltob Fri 31-Jul-09 17:31:10

why not Cecil for a boy Pavlov. My first skipper was called Cecil and he was a lovely old bloke, it could be the new Alfie / Archie / Bert / insert turn of the century name due a comeback

PavlovtheForgetfulCat Fri 31-Jul-09 17:32:45

oh no, cecil, not as pretty as cecily!

stripes200 Fri 31-Jul-09 17:34:59

Very pretty, I like it a lot.

I don't know any so I'd say isn't too popular at all.

MaybeAfterBreakfast Fri 31-Jul-09 17:42:09

Lovely. Know one baby with this name.

proverbial Sat 01-Aug-09 17:36:10

Immediately think of THe importance of being earnest and Cousin Cecily....which is not a bad thing!

MrsBadger Sat 01-Aug-09 17:50:56

too frilly for me

We loved it for DD, but it clashes with our surname.
