How beautiful, melodic, and ultra-feminine! And if she turns out to be an incorrigible tomboy, you can always just call her Tina.

An even more tomboyish nickname could be Les, as it is usually short for Leslie, which is unisex.

P.S. This name is fantastic! So... celestial :)

A main character in Fernando de Rojas' dramatic novel "La Celestina." She practices witchcraft, and helps the hero win the heroine's love. She is killed toward the end by two servants because she won't share her gifts from the hero with them.

"Celestina" is a novel by English poet Charlotte Turner Smith, published in 1791. A political commentary and satire as well as a Cinderella-style courtship novel, "Celestina" tells the story of an adopted orphan named Celestina, a heroine of sensibility who marries the man she loves, Willoughby. Celestina is described as independent, assertive, enlightened, and liberating for young readers; Willoughby, on the other hand, is sentimental and emotional, traits traditionally associated with femininity, reversing the stereotypical gender roles. Jane Austen, an avid reader of Smith's novels, responded to "Celestina" with "Sense and Sensibility", even naming the hero John Willoughby.

This name is precious and incomparably beautiful. It sounds sleek and silvery, as well as classy, lyrical, sophisticated and cultured. A gorgeous name found in old Spanish literature. I like all the "Celest" names, and if I were to choose a favourite it would be Celestina. What I like about it is it's very cosmopolitan, like Cecilia and Claudia, and will be pronounced beautifully wherever you go. However, I don't really like any of the nicknames. Cel and Tina are okay, but they take away a lot of the beauty and majesty of Celestina. Pity some people feel the need to shorten such a glamourous and perfect name.

I like it; it's mellifluous. One way of interpreting the meaning of the name is "belonging to the stars" because in the 'elements' part of the glossary it says that -ine, -ino, -inus, and -ina are diminutive suffixes meaning "belonging to." Also, Celestina derives from Caelestis, which meant "of the sky; heavenly" which stars certainly are.

I think it's perfect for us because my husband is from Sicily. In Italian it sounds like Shelaysteena. My name is Shelly.
