Cicilia is a feminine name of Welsh and Latin origin, inspired by Cecilia, meaning “blind” and “sixth.” Saint Cecilia, the patron saint of music and the Catholic patron saint of the blind, bore this eloquent title. With its quirky “i” spelling, Cicilia lends a contemporary title steeped in ancient origins. In Welsh, Cicilia is a respelling of Seissylt, meaning “sixth,” derived from the Latin Sextilius. Whether honoring a venerated saint or simply charmed by its rich Latin roots, Cicilia lives up to its ties with the patron saint of music as a mellifluous appellation baby can sing with pride.
