The italian pronunciation is "loo chee uh" but I love the more "american" pronunciation "loo see uh". I dont’ want to do it if a lot of people will be confused or will think it’s loo chee uh. I really just don’t like the way it sounds.

My favorite is Loo-sha but I think most people would read it Lucia as Lu-see-uh.
All three pronunciations are correct. Go with the one you love.

Loo see ah is the spanish pronunciation and Loo chee ah is the Italian pronunciation... I personally LOVE Loo see ah :)

Loo-chee-ah is how I typically pronounce it. I would pronounce your daughter’s name whichever way you wished, however.

Thanks, everyone. It seems like "loo see uh" is more common than I thought! That’s great news. Now to convince hubby that she won’t constantly be dealing with it!
