Alice nn Lucy vs. Yes vs. No

Does Lucy work as a nickname for Alice? There was a little bit of controversy on my previous poll so I will try to clarify a few things. I want to name my baby girl after my grandmother who is still living. I like the name Alice as a first name, but can’t call her Alice because my grandmother is still alive. I don’t like the nn Ali, Liss, Lissy, etc. And I don’t like variations of Alice such as Alison, Alicia, etc. I came up with Lucy because of the L-vowel-c that appears in both. Also I like that Lucy still has a classic old fashioned feel like Alice.

Genie's Mailbag

Emma in Western Australia
We have a boy named Tyler James and a girl named Gypsie Jade. Expecting our 3rd, which is a boy. I'm in love with the name Olly, but my partner thinks Gypsie and Olly are unique names and Tyler is not, so it won't feel right. So he wants an ordinary name. Please help with something unique but ordinary.
Baby Name Genie:
In the space between unique and ordinary is a special category of names I think of as "antiques." They are familiar and well-used names that are not widely in use these days. For your son, I give you Oscar Jude - a perfectly ordinary, unique name.
