Nicknames for Cyrilla?

[name_u]Or[/name_u] [name_f]Cirilla[/name_f], not sure which I prefer right now.

I’m trying to avoid [name_f]Ciri[/name_f] “Siri” for obvious reasons.

All I can think of is [name_m]Cyril[/name_m] which isn’t my style for a little girl or [name_f]Cilla[/name_f] which is cute but would people assume her name was [name_f]Pricilla[/name_f]?

Some middles I like are;
[name_u]Rune[/name_u] / [name_f]Runa[/name_f]
If you can make any nicknames using this maybe?

Thanks for your help!

I don’t think that people assuming her name is [name_f]Priscilla[/name_f] is a big deal! You could correct them pretty easily. [name_f]Cilla[/name_f] is a cute nickname.

Some other ideas are [name_f]Cyra[/name_f] (Sira), [name_f]Lila[/name_f], [name_f]Lily[/name_f], Ri, [name_f]Cece[/name_f], [name_f]Cilly[/name_f] (like “silly”), [name_f]Cia[/name_f] (like Sia) or just C (like “see”).

[name_f]Cilla[/name_f] is cute, and there are lots of nicknames that have a variety of full name options (Maddie and [name_f]Ellie[/name_f] for example), so I don’t think that people will assume her full name is [name_f]Priscilla[/name_f], and if they do it wouldn’t be a big correction.
I love the ideas of [name_f]Cyra[/name_f] and [name_f]Lila[/name_f] as nicknames! I can’t think of anymore that come from just [name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f], but incorporating middles, maybe [name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f] Rune/Runa “Luna”?

I think [name_f]Cilla[/name_f] works just fine! I wouldn’t automatically assume [name_f]Priscilla[/name_f], just that it was short for something.


I don’t think people will automatically assume [name_f]Cilla[/name_f] is for [name_f]Priscilla[/name_f]. [name_f]Cilla[/name_f] is a nice choice!

[name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f]: [name_f]Lily[/name_f], [name_f]Cece[/name_f], [name_f]Ria[/name_f]

[name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f] [name_f]Elaine[/name_f]: [name_f]Celie[/name_f], [name_f]Lainey[/name_f], [name_u]Ciel[/name_u]

[name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f] [name_u]Rune[/name_u]: [name_m]Cru[/name_m]

[name_f]Rilla[/name_f] is the first that come in mind. Other suggestions:

[name_f]Lili[/name_f] / [name_f]Lilli[/name_f] / [name_f]Lilly[/name_f] / [name_f]Lily[/name_f]
[name_f]Elli[/name_f] / [name_f]Ellie[/name_f]
[name_f]Lala[/name_f] / [name_f]Lalla[/name_f]
Ci / C
[name_f]Cillie[/name_f] / [name_f]Cilly[/name_f]

[name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f] Lucy: CL, Cilu / [name_f]Cilou[/name_f], [name_u]Lou[/name_u], Rilu / Rilou, [name_f]Lilou[/name_f] / Lilu, Luri, [name_f]Lucy[/name_f], Luli
[name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f] Sage: CS, Cisa, [name_u]Risa[/name_u], [name_u]Lisa[/name_u], Sali, [name_f]Sari[/name_f], Sacie
[name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f] Wren: CW, Cren, [name_m]Len[/name_m], [name_u]Ren[/name_u], Cyrew, Cray
[name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f] Matilda: CM, Cilda, Cylma, Cyma, Cimmie, Rimmie, Rittie, Cittie, Ciddie, [name_f]Cyd[/name_f], Cym, Cyl, [name_u]Remy[/name_u], Yilti, Rilma, Rilda
[name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f] Elaine: CE, Cel, [name_u]Ciel[/name_u], [name_f]Cela[/name_f], [name_f]Céline[/name_f], Cennie, [name_u]Rennie[/name_u], [name_u]Ren[/name_u], [name_f]Linnie[/name_f], [name_f]Lin[/name_f], Lain / [name_u]Lane[/name_u], Cyla
[name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f] Yvaine: Cyva, [name_f]Riva[/name_f], [name_f]Rina[/name_f]
[name_f]Cyrilla[/name_f] Rune / Runa: CR, Ceru, [name_m]Crue[/name_m]

And no, [name_f]Cilla[/name_f] does not mean [name_f]Priscilla[/name_f] only for me.

[name_m]Cy[/name_m], like [name_m]Cy[/name_m] Twombly, or [name_f]Rilla[/name_f], like [name_u]Anne[/name_u] Shirley’s daughter.

You’ve had a lot of good suggestions already.
[name_f][/name_f]I’d suggest Silka or [name_f]Silky[/name_f].

[name_f]Rilla[/name_f] came first to mind! [name_f]Cici[/name_f] and [name_f]Cyra[/name_f] too.

[name_f]Cela[/name_f] (see-la)
[name_f][/name_f]I think it could be totally usually since the original name has both sounds

[name_f]Cilla[/name_f] is the most instinctive for me
