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

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
