    Most really obvious place names I dislike - Ireland, Asia, China, America, etc. I think that if you really liked it or it had some kind of special meaning that it would be better worked into the middle, rather than the first. I think as a first name it's a little much. Also, for some reason I picture Scotland as being very masculine.

    As for Sicily, it's a little better than Scotland, but I still would never use it personally. I prefer Cecily/Cicely, Celia, Cecilia.

    Sicily is better than Scotland, but I'd rather use italian Sicilia. I still feel you should go more local. Not knowing exactly where you're from, or your friend, here are some suggestions:

    Sicilia:
    Messina
    Zisa
    Cimarosa
    Trapani
    Vittoria
    Siracusa
    Verdura
    Catania

    Scotland:
    Scotia
    Ailsa
    Cara
    Eorsa
    Eriska
    Erraid
    Fara
    Iona
    Lunan
    Isla
    Maree
    Katrine
    Avon
    Marilyn
    Nevis

    I prefer Scotia or Alba (prn al-eh-bah).

    Not keen on most place names. Sicilia is ok, but not that keen. Don't like Sicily.

    Scotland would be a good boy's name, but it's not good for a girl...except as a middle name. I heard of twin boys named Scotland and Holland once. Maybe Scottie would be a cute girl's nickname, but Scotland is just too masculine for my taste. I do generally like geography names, though. My own son's middle name is Holland (because my mother is from Holland, and as I happened to find out later, it's also a paternal great uncle's middle name).
