Cecil Number, the number of steps that separate a person from Richard Cecil


The number is calculated in a similar fashion to the Bacon Number. However in the Kevin Bacon game, the only primitive step is simply "was in a movie with".

When calculating Cecil Numbers, there are four different primitive steps : "Was the Spouse of", "Was the Parent of", "Was the Child of" and "Was the Sibling of".

So the parents, children, siblings and spouses of Richard Cecil are "Cecil Ones".

The parents, children, siblings and spouses of Cecil Ones are "Cecil Twos".

The parents, children, siblings and spouses of Cecil Twos would then be "Cecil Threes".

And so on.

If a person can be assigned more than one Cecil Number, by following different paths, the lowest number is the one used.
