I love this name. It sounds very feminine and soft. I prefer the soft sound of this because it sounds sweet and gentle to the harsh, common Sarah, or even the Biblical name Serah.

In classical Latin, the C is always hard; additionally, the long e is an "ay" sound, as in "say". Therefore, since the last e is long, Ceres should be pronounced - if you want to be a purist about it - "ker-ays."

I think this name is absolutely beautiful, and exotic without being too far out-there. I imagine it's pronounced "SER-ays", with the long 'a' sound being quite soft. Very pretty.

In Latin, this name would have been pronounced as [ke'res], but in English it is rendered as [si:ris] due to a pronunciation shift that occured with the letter "c".

In late Latin times, however, this name may have been pronounced as [tʃe'res].

According to my mythology teacher, Ceres is pronounced like the English word "series." It's beautiful, and I think it would be a great name for a little girl.
