Cecile is a Welsh girl's name. It comes from the traditional Welsh name Seissylt, which means "sixth," but is also related to the Latin word caecus and its associated clan name Caecilius, which means "blind." This name flows off the tongue and has a built-in sense of elegance that it shares with its related names, Cecily and Cecilia. Cecile is a thoughtful—and stylish—way to honor any family member named Cecil.
