Cecilia ex-Sarkozy.

A complete no-no at the moment.

She is the patron saint of musicians .

Was my first choice but would make the baby sound almost like the woman in brief encounter with my surname so went for Lucy instead.

I have a lovely friend called Cecilia, so my associations with it are fab! I love it, it is unusual but not odd, & feminine but not too girly.
We use my friend's full name, but it also gets shortened, to:
Cec, Cecly, Beely, Cecil, Celia.

Go for it!!

Seriously considered it. But my Mum pointed out that it would get shortened to Sissy and that might not go so well at school. Not that it is good to listen to mothers in these matters (the name she gave me wasn't much cop)

I didn't think I've ever heard of cecelia being shortened to Sissy. Just looked up Sissy Spacek to see what her real name is and it turns out they got Sissy out of Mary Elizabeth. Seems a bit of a stretch .
