Do you prefer the name Cecilia or Cordelia ?

I love both names. I'm truly having a difficult time picking though.

Cecilia- I like the sophisticated feel and the vintage vibe of the name. I also like the nick names CeCe an Celia or even Cela (see-la). I dislike that it's in the 200's as far as popularity. I typically like rarer names.

Cordelia- I love that its vintage and not in the top 1000 names. It reminds me of "king Lear" and a character on one of my favorite shows "Buffy the vampire slayer". I like the nick names Cora, Corrie, Cordy and Delia. Only cons are people possibly calling her Cornelia

What do you think ?

  • That's tough, I love both names. They're both on a list for possible names for my next child. I think I like Cordelia more (I'm a Buffy fan too), but Cecilia is great too! :)

  • Cordelia. One of my good friends in high school had that name, she was murdered by her sisters boyfriend :(

  • I think both names have a very nice ring to them. Maybe you better have twins so you can give them each a pretty name.

  • Not crazy about either, but if I had to choose, it would be Cecilia.
