Derived from the English adjective celestial meaning "of the sky, heavenly", which is ultimately derived from the Latin adjective caelestis meaning "of the heavens" (see Caelestis).The use of Celestial as a given name probably started out of religious reasons, though it is also possible that its first use was inspired by the similar (and etymologically related) given names Celeste and Celestia.
