"Despite the popularity in the 20th century of American film director Cecil B. de Mille, to some Americans, if not all, this name (pron. 'see-sall' in America but 'sess-all' in England) sounds like an evil or insipid blond youth from an old novel written in 19th-century England with said blond guy as the main antagonist opposite a tall, dark, and handsome protagonist (with any name other than this one). Then again, it may instead sound like a gray-haired English butler with a monocle in one eye...and he'd still be a villain (English actors, especially ones with quintessential British names, are often cast as bad guys in Hollywood films), or perhaps one of the more sympathetic male characters out there."
