Thread: Cecily?

  1. #1

    Cecily?

    I'm really liking Cecily as of late. What is everyone's opinions? Will it get mistaken for Sicily way too much?

    I prefer the spelling Cicely, which is a bit more botanical, and reminiscent of the Victorian illustrator Cicely Mary Barker, who I admire very much.

    Or Cecilia, which is a bit frillier and avoids the Sicily thing.

    There's nothing really wrong with Cecily it just doesn't grab me the same way and I like so many C names that it'd be well down the list for me.

    I have a cousin named Cecily (which is my preferred spelling) whose father was Cecil but went by Kit. There are a lot of literary allusions to it. Since has been used only sparingly in America, I don't see any minuses but only the pluses.
