Actually, Celine (and Celina) has a different origin from Selena. It is derived from the Roman family name Caelinus, which was itself derived from the Roman family name Caelius (see Celio).

The name Celine is also a French form of the Latin 'caelum' meaning sky or heaven. But it may also be a variant of Selene or Celia.

Can also be pronounced suh-LEEN, like how Celine dion pronounces it. I like that pronunciation better, céline sounds like saline.
