Absolutely stunning. I love it and am considering it for my child.
- Personal experiences with the name Celine: | Edit
I absolutley love my name. It is unique, and special, a twist on traditional names like Cecelia and Cecil. The bad thing about this name is that is often blurred in the memory of some people and is repeated as Cecile, Cecil, Cecilia, Selina, etc. Also, for many people it is hard to spell. But it the most perfect name that I have ever heard, not just because it is mine and I it is the perfect name for a little girl. I know a Celene/Celine. She is the intern helping my friend and I with at school.
