My name is Ceilidh, it's pronounced as Kay-Lee btw :) it's Irish. I'm 18 and have been suffering with SAS for what seems like forever. Nice to meet you all :)

Welcome, Ceilidh! :)

The Welsh certainly have a way with letters :). That is a very interesting spelling for a pretty name :).

Hi Ceilidh :wel

You could always go by kayleigh if you wanted to.

Either leave documentation alone & just introduce to people like that
or even legally get changed. I mean it's all good any which of way.

I like your name but imagine you have to explain any time some one
reads it the first time. Anyway hi :drunk

I was thinking about changing it last year, it may make things easier. I just find it annoying in the doctors or whatever when people call me "Sel-eed-ah" and then I have to explain what it says and what origin it's from .____. and the whole SAS thing makes it difficult to talk to new people alone explaining my name to them.

Thaks guys :D

I'd keep it the way it was given. Once you say it, we see it in the name. I have seen other names like that - Siobhan is another interesting name.

I had to go all the way to Scotland to learn how to pronounce your name! It means "a musical occasion" (like singing and dancing), right?

While visiting in Scotland, I attended a "ceilidh" but wasn't sure of how to say the word. I wrote it down in a little notebook. The next day, I approached a middle-aged, non-scary-looking lady, and asked, timidly, "Excuse me, are you Scottish?" She said that she was. So I pointed to the word I had copied into my notebook and asked, "How do you pronounce that, please?" She told me, "KAY-lee!"

Didn't get to visit Ireland. Maybe next time.

Hey Ceilidh!

That's a beautiful name! My family's all Scottish and English, but we got the names that were either boring (e.g. mine, Peter) or cumbersome (like my grandfather, Arnut Hume MacGregor). Celtic and Greek names are the coolest in the world, aren't they?
