Can really stand for anything with "Ciss" in it.

It's sort of cute as a nickname for Elizabeth, too.

Sounds more like a nickname for Cecilia. I can't stand this immature, cutesy, yet ugly name that sounds like someone's calling a guy a sissy because they think the guy isn't masculine enough, like being feminine is the worst thing there is.

Famous bearers include Sissy Spacek and Cissy Houston, who is Whitney Houston's mother.

It sounds a little better than Sissy, but I definitely wouldn't recommend this as a name. It will equal bullying for life.

Horrible name. My friend has a variation of it, Ciccy (pronounced see-see) which is slightly better, but still not very nice.

It wouldn't be a good idea to name your daughter Cissy, especially nowadays as "Cissy" is a slang term for "cisgender" (i.e. a person who is not transgender), and it's frequently used by the social justice crowd on Tumblr. Plus it only makes the name Sissy even worse with that association.
