Mobile: The name Cecilia and middle name help
Hi baby name board! What are your thoughts on the name Cecilia? Specifically...
1) Do you prefer Cecilia or Cecelia?
2) Does the former spelling make you think of 'cilia' = slender protuberance of a cell?
3) How do you feel about the popular song by Simon and Garfunkel? Do you think it gives the name a bad connotation?
4) And finally... help me pick a middle name! Our last name rhymes with Rowen
Cecilia Sofia (after my inspirational aunt)
Cecilia Anna or Annabelle (my middle name is Anna after my grandmother)
Cecilia Catherine (no family connection)
Cecilia Casady (last name of MIL)
In general I've been drawn to classic, traditional names that stand the test of time. I'm also Catholic so it's a bonus if it's a Saint name- Cecilia is the patron saint of music.
Other names I like include Hannah, Victoria, Elizabeth, Samantha, Alexandra, Julianna, Isabella, Isla, Felicity, Aurelia, Seraphina, Calliope.
Sorry about the long post and many questions!
