I would pronounce it SEH-sih-lee. I've always liked the name, although Cecilia is much higher on my list.

I would pronounce it Ce-sil-ly (Ses-sil-ly, with an emphasis on the first half) I dont know if thats coming across like I want it to. I think it is a beautiful name.

Loooove it and to me it seems obvious to pronounce it the same way as you do (Ses-i-lee).

I've always loved the name. It's a fresh version of Cecilia. No I don't think it would have pronunciation issues.

I think the majority of people will pronounce it like Sicily. I really like Sicily. Cecily is cute too though.
