I agree, but I also found this clip that uses the second pronunciation (with a long 'i', like in meal or deal) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lfn7WT5ur1E
Regardless, I prefer the second...
Just wondering, how do you pronounce Cecily? I always thought it was something like SESS-ill-ee, but I've also heard it pronounced sess-EEL-ee, which I don't like as much. Which is correct?

I have a cast of six siblings in my story - four girls and two boys - and I really need help naming the fourth girl. She's the second youngest of the set, brown hair, short, and a little on the plump...
Actually, it's a regular school story. I did think about Calla, but I felt like it was a bit too close to Callie. Thanks for our input!

Poll: Alternatives to Calista?
I'm planning on rewriting an old story from about three years ago, and I'm looking for a new name for the protagonist. Her original name was Calista 'Callie' McKenzie, and while I don't want to use...

Hi! I'm a SOuth Indian as well, so I get your dilemma. Out of your suggestions, I actually like Miranda Beckett the best, because Beckett is a tiny bit loser to your actual name, but the last name...

I'm writing with three sisters. The oldest is named Susanna, and the youngest is named Clare. I need a preferably 2-syllable name for the middle sister. This a multiple option poll, and if you have...

It's not - it's a Sanskrit name. Means 'god'.
What about Livienne?

I'm pretty sure NB lists Penrose as a male name - would that count?

From your list, I vote Flannery, no contest :) I actually don't mind the name Mary, and I think it fits pretty well for your character - or better still, Molly. Molly really works.
So yeah - I...

@castles - I'd say you were a Valencia or Valeria. Or possibly a Cecilia.
I have longish dark hair, also wavy, pale brown skin, round face. I'm about 5'3. I wear glasses. I have an unfortunately...

I'm working on a story which centers almost entirely around one character, and I was thinking about using her name as the title. I just wasn't sure if her name - Lia - was 'dramatic' enough to pull...

I think a 'P' or 'M' name. Paula, Paloma, Patricia, May, Mabel, Madeleine...or Anna. I don't know why. But Anna keeps coming to mind.

This is something I do in my spare time :) Hope you like!
Pick a character. Any character, from any book or movie. And then imagine what their hypothetical sibling might have been named.

@renrose LOL xD
One of the main characters in my story was named Rosalia (pronounced Rosa-Leah) nn Lia and it fit her like a glove. Unfortunately, it was a bit too close to another character, Lila, so now I'm going...
That...is a really, really cool name :D Would you mind terribly if I used it in a story?
January 11th, 2014, 06:24 AM
Tough pick. I think mine would be C -
Those last three are pretty similar, come to think of it :P
Wait so do you want a word name as the full name or nickname? Assuming it was full name - how about Westerly nn West? I've always liked it, but I've already got a character named Waverly, so...
I like Ember better in any case, so that's what I vote. I personally don't see anything wrong with spelling Briar with a 'y'. but when I first saw the title of your thread I assumed it was for a male...
