Name Meaning

From the Latin name Caecilia, feminine form of Caecilius ( see Cecil ). This was a good deal more common than the masculine form, largely due to the fame of the 2nd- or 3rd-century virgin martyr whose name is still mentioned daily in the Roman Catholic Canon of the Mass. She is regarded as the patron saint of music and has inspired works such as Purcell's ‘Ode on St Cecilia's Day’, although the reasons for this association are not clear.
