  1. I named my daughter Cecilia after the patron saint of music and singers, St. Cecilia. I’ve loved the name since I used that saint as my confirmation saint for confirmation, I’m Catholic, in the 8th grade. I’ve wanted it to be a girl’s name for as long as I can remember. We affectionately call her Cece for short.

  2. I like old fashion unique names. It was on my list of names and my husband approved it. It is a classic name and my husbands family who only speak Spanish can say it. Her middle name is Jasmin

  3. Cecilia Raye is named after her great grandfather’s.
    My grandfather Cecil passed away last year and we were very close, my grandfather Raymond is still thankfully with us.
    Raye is also a variation of my stepfather who has been a dad and is a awesome papa, middle name. As well as being the name of my husbands late grandfather. So our daughter has a very special name. ?

  4. I chose the name Cecilia because it is a mix of our names, mine Otilia and my husband’s Cesare.

  5. St. Cecilia

  6. Hello, moms all over the world! I chose the name Cecilia, because it is a mix of both of our names: Cesare (my husband) + Otilia (me) = Cecilia.
