Ceres pronounced as TSEH-rehs in Czech and Slovak.
This to my ears and eyesight, is one of the loveliest names of all time. It's so unusual, uncommon and soft sounding which I often find S names to be. Whether you choose this name because of the dwarf planet named Ceres, looking for something rather Celestial or into astrology and mythology, it's timeless regardless. It's so fresh and special and an underrated name.
Guess this is where the word cereal comes from!
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.

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.
