"In 1968, there was a science fiction novel (later made into a Disney movie) called "Race to Witch Mountain"... whose main characters were an orphaned extraterrestrial (but human looking, on the outside) brother and sister... with some special abilities. Those who have seen the movie usually think of them as "Tony and Tia"... but those who have read the book (very closely... it is only mentioned once, as best as I can recall) know that those nicknames are actually short for "Anthony and Celestia".
What can I say? My parents were bi-lingual Sci-Fi buffs... and it was the dawn of the space age. [Next door in Canada, for those wondering why this site's statistics don't show anyone recent with this name... which is a slightly more common (although still very unusual) name among French speakers.]
My name is Celestia (pronounced "Cel - ES - Tee - AH"), although I respond to any name even close to that. Sigh. "Celeste", "Celestina", "Christina"... the list of ways people mangle my name is rather long. LOL. Even the usual short form of my name that my friends call me, ("Tia"), gets mangled all too often. ("Tina" being the usual mistake.)
I have never met another Celestia, although I have met several "Tia's". Usually, their parents saw the movie, rather than reading the book. LOL. Most of the "Tia's" I have met are much younger than myself, though -- not surprising, given that the first of three remakes of this movie was released almost a decade after the book...
The name means "Heavenly" (French origin), or "Of the Heavens, or Sky" (Latin origin)... and is as unique as I am. I rather like my name... even if it often confuses people. Smile." Jul. 25, 2010:
