Definition funny of Celia:

urbanSomeone who is pure of heart. She wishes to please those around her and is an excellent team player. She is very passionate and expresses all emotions with her soul, especially when she loves. Celia is a "hopeful" romantic who will search 'til the ends of the earth to find her soul-mate and will never settle for anything less. She is extremely loyal to her friends and will do anything to protect the people that she loves. She is caring and sweet, and will stay by your side when you're down or sick. Although her loyalty runs strong, take caution; once you betray Celia, she will easily write you off. Not because she's cold and unforgiving, but because she is wise beyond her years and knows that the friends you will have forever are those who you can count on to never hurt you with intention. Celia is magnetic to all that meet her, with beauty, brains, and her witty sarcasm and good humor; how can anyone resist her?

Comments and insights on the name Celia:

Alternate pronunciation (Spanish): SEEL-ee-uh.

Personal experiences with the name Celia:

I was named Celia for my great grandmother, whose name was Anglicized when she came to Boston from Lithuania. Like others have said, I get a lot of either mispronunciation (mostly Cecilia) or misspelling (cilia) so I used to get frustrated with it when I was younger. Now I love it - it is found in so many languages and cultures, and I love the connection to my family history. It's precisely because I'm looking for names my future kids that are as strong as the one my parents gave me that I found this website!

We named our daughter Celia. Not only is it my paternal grandmother's name, it is also a name from Shakespearean times (the play "As You Like It" featured the leads "Oliver" and "Celia," and we already had a son named Oliver). The poet Ben Jonson wrote "To Celia," the classic poem that begins, "Drink to me with thine eyes..."

It is a beautiful, timeless name and we are pleased with it and it fits her very well.

My parents named me Celia Catherine in 1994 and I'm very unhappy with my first name. I think it's an unattractive spelling. Most people pronounce it Sil-yuh, when it should be pronounced See-lee-uh. I'm content when it's pronounced correctly, but most people can't say it even after being corrected. I wouldn't recommend naming your child Celia; I'm slightly upset with my parents giving me this name.

OK! My name is Celia Cristina and I was named after my grandmother & Cuban salsa singer Celia Cruz. (I am Cuban, also.) I love my name. Just like the girl above me I get EXTREMELY annoyed when people slaughter my name. If it's not them pronouncing it "sell-yah" or "seal-e-uh"! Granted those are the most common ways of pronouncing it, it still bothers me. I only tend to get annoyed when I repeatedly tell the person the correct way, and they still mess it up, though. I love my name. Not many of us and it can be pronounced with totally different ways, and has a lot of nicknames, too. I wouldn't change my name, although when I was younger I definitely wanted too. Kids are kids.. no matter what your name is, if a kid wants to come up with something to rhyme with it, they will.

My name is Celia and was one of many who was also named after my grandmother....and I too understand about the many different ways it can be mispronounced like sill-ee-uh or cecelia when its not! I do happen to know many ways it can be used as a nickname like CC as previously commented or just plain sell-ee...as I am formerly called. I think the nickname Cell-ee has a much prettier and more feminine vibe to it for many of you who may be called Celia and feel they can be more comfortable with the name...I know I do, its because of that nickname that I really enjoy my name. Of course since it did derive from the Latin origin I preffer having my name pronounced with a Spanish pronounciation like cel-ee-uh, but that's the way I preffer along with other Latina girls. I also recall that the name means heavenly.

My name is Celia, as well, I really like my name, but I get annoyed when I tell people my name, and they think its Cecelia. Other than that, is is not the most popular name in the United States, but I like how it is a name in foreign countries, like Cuba, and Spain, and I am not Cuban or Spanish. I was actually primarily named from my grandfather's mother, and I think that is cool.

My name is Celia and I love the name. I was named for a distant relative, and it's only my white last name that lets people know I'm not a Latina :-) I really don't mind when people call me Cecilia, as I think that's beautiful, and if they say Selya, seelya, silya... well, I'd rather have that than be named "Beth"! I've been called "Julia" and "Sylvia"... but anyway, I'm very appreciative of the name, and of the classic but unusual names my parents chose for my brothers as well.
