Meaning:Blind; Heaven
Cecily is a British feminine name born from the venerated Saint Cecilia. While it comes from the word caecus, meaning "blind," it's also rooted in the Roman family name Caelius, Cecily finds a fitting meaning in the Latin caelum, "heaven." Endowed with such ethereal quality, is it any wonder that Cecilia would spark a lineage of admiral women famed for their faith. Even upon its Medieval transformation into Cecily, the title held sway as the regal Duchess of York, Cecily Neville. Mother of kings Edward IV and Richard III, Cecily earned a reputation of her own as the Rose of Raby for her beauty and flawless piety.
