Soft as silk in sound and definition, Ercilia is a darling girl’s name of Spanish origin, meaning “delicate.” Derived from the Latin name Hersilia, which flows from the Greek expression herse for “dew,” Ercilia and all its sibilant hush might pique the interest of those who live and breathe Hellenic faith. As Greek legend has it, Herse reigned as deity over the early morning dew. Bathing the earth in her blessed waters, she was given daily praise for the wholesome work of her hands. Nourishing to the soil and soul, let Ercilia be the name that nurtures your little one.
