Do you think Cecilia would be too hard to pronounce for a child?

We like Cecelia/Cecilia not sure which spelling to go with I've seen both spellings used but do you think it's too tough for kids to pronounce?

  • I suppose you could call her Cee Cee in the beginning

  • No. It's one of my favorite "old-fashion" names too.

  • At first but, they'll get it. And, you can use CeCe as a nickname.

  • I had a lady named Cecelia who helped me clean my house when my daughter was a baby and then a toddler. My daughter called her Ceci for a long time before she could say Cecelia. It's a pretty name, though.

  • Most Cecelias I know go by CC. I think it is a lovely name.

  • I don't think it's too hard for kids to pronounce. My four-year-old pronounces it correctly. If a kid has a hard time with it, they could always shorten it to CeeCee. I think it's a beautiful name and either spelling is fine!
