We can always shorten it to Cecile as a nn, right?
The reason I'm asking is because people are all ready confusing her name. I'm starting to feel like I'm in the twilight zone where 'Cecile' is a name I made up or something....
I think it's a pretty name, and you should use whichever name you prefer
People will confuse names all over the place, regardless of what you name your baby. My name is Shoshana and I get called Shannon all the time. (I know, totally unrelated, right?)
You totally did NOT make up Cecile (it's a French version of Cecilia). And she'll get used to correcting people. And I'm sure she'll be very good-natured about it. BUT! She'll never have to be Ashley #3 in class!
I like cecile.
