    I've never watched Bones, so I have no association with Seeley Booth, so I really can't answer your question However, I think Seeley sounds attractive for a guy.
    Just the other day I was introduced to the Welsh name Sulien, pronounced SEE-lee-en and meaning "sun-born." I found it attractive and thought Seeley could make a cool nickname.

    By the way, I do believe that the similarity between Seeley and "silly" is no coincidence. Seeley can mean "fortunate" or "blessed," coming from the word selig. Selig, or a cousin thereof, is also the root of the word "silly," which originally meant "blessed." Our current usage of "silly" as a synonym of goofy, or childishly funny, has been acquired over the years.
