I know you probably hate place names...but is Sicily all that bad? I have liked Sicily for a long time and I love the sound of it.
I know that Cecily would probably be a more acceptable name, but I prefer the Sis-ily prn to the Ses-i-lee of Cecily. Does that make sense?
Can Cecily be pronounced like Sicily or is it strictly Ses-i-lee? Thanks!

I don't hate it, but it's not my style. I prefer it with a C.

Cicely is a legitimate form of Cecily, and it's pronounced like Sis-ily. Cicely Tyson and Cicely Saunders are two people with that version of the name.

Sicily is just a place, not related to the name Cecily/Cicely even if it's pronounced the same way as Cicely.

I love Cecily. I think it's beautiful. I've never really seen Cicely. It looks a little awkawrd to me but only because I'm so familar with Cecily. But I think if you want the Sicily pronuciation you should go with Cicely.

I like Cecily. I don't like Sicily because of it being a place name.
