Bad Baby Name Definition – Cecily

A few weeks ago I spied a nutty baby name definition at BabyNames.com:

The meaning of the name Cecily is Blind Of Self Beauty

Um…not quite.

Cecily is a form of Cecilia, which (like Cecil) can be traced back to the Latin word cæcus, which means “blind.”

Just blind. Nothing about beauty.

Talk about spin, eh?
