This name of a side character of the Witcher series brought me here, spelled Cerys but pronounced the same. I like this spelling better.

We named our daughter Ceres after the dwarf planet and have gotten lots of compliments. People commonly think it's Siri, however. So be prepared to politely correct people if you choose this beautiful unique name!
