The English word for the herb sweet Cicely (Myrrhis odorata) ultimately comes from the obscure Greek word seselis [óέóåëéò], which apparently was a collective term for a number of umbelliferous herbs.

Sometimes confused with Sicily, an island off the southern tip of Italy. That word comes from the Greek Sikeloi "Sicilians", the name of an ancient people that lived on the island.

Dame Cicely Veronica Wedgwood (1910-97) was a famous English historian, descended from the celebrated pottery family. She used her middle name, Veronica, rather than Cicely, and was known on the title pages of her books as C.V. Wedgwood.

This name is growing on me, however it may be mistaken for Cecily quite often if used on a child today.

I much prefer Cecily. Cicely reminds me too much of Sicily, where my ancestors came from. :-)

I think Cicely is visually prettier than Cecily, but it sounds exactly like the island, and it reminds me of Cicero, AND there's a clothing company called Sisley. How unfortunate.

I love this name, mostly because of Cicely Mary Barker's work on the Flower Fairies, and it has a very elegant sound. I hope it becomes popular eventually, and everyone will go back to the good old days, when daughters were given REAL girls names, instead of all these Madisons and Jordans.

I prefer the pronunciation of Cicely over that of Cecily.
