  • "Cecelia is my 3 year old granddaughter's name. I love it because it is so lyrical. People in day care call her Cece, and we don't care for that, but I do love her name. She's a beautiful, sweet, blond, blue eyed girl." Dec. 12, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love my name. I think that it is a beautiful name, and a family tradition of sorts, right next to my other favorite name. My grandmother's, Ophelia. I have to reintroduce myself to my family's acquaintances when they introduce me, because they call me by my nickname which has nothing to do with my name, Cecelia. It's almost like two different personalities. My father only calls me by my name, Cecelia, since he named me after his favorite aunt. All of my friends call me Cecelia, and a few variations. "Ceelie" (Color Purple), Ceil, Cessy (usually sports teammates). But i don't allow Celia. I have my reasons." Aug. 11, 2010: Report as inappropriate
