This name derives from the Latin “Caecus / Caecilius”, which in turn derives from the Proto-Italic and Proto-Indo-European Adjective “*káykos / *kaikos”, meaning “one-eyed, blind“. Saint Cecilia was a noble lady of Rome who, with her husband Valerian, his brother Tiburtius, and a Roman soldier Maximus, suffered martyrdom ~230, under the Emperor Alexander Severus. She was sentenced to die because she refused to worship the Roman gods. After attempts to suffocate her failed, she was beheaded. His worship is very popular because Cecilia is the patron saint of music.
