Lucia- Loo-sha vs. Lucia- Loo-see-uh
Which pronounciation do you think when you see the name Lucia? Please also indicate where you are from. We are from the Chicago area. We would like our baby to be called Lucy, but have a longer proper name. We are having a hard time finding that. Our other daughter is Eleanor "Ellie". Thanks!
The Top Baby Name is...
Loo sha I am from Omaha
LOO-sha, North Carolina.
Thoughts on Louisa, Lucila, Lucille or Lucinda nn Lucy?
Lucia - Minnesota. But know someone who named her daughter Loo-sha here. Not a fan at all if that pronunciation! Whereas Lu-see-a sounds beautiful and feminine to me.
Loo see uh, I'm from pa
Loo-CHEE-ah, the way it's pronounced in Italian. I'm from NY.
I also know a teenage Lucia (lu-sha) who recently transitioned into using the name Levi. transgender kid.
much prefer Loo-see-uh
Loo-sha is the pronunciation most commonly used in Spanish/Latin/Hispanic. Loo-chee-ah is the pronunciation most commonly used in Italy. Loo-see-ah is the pronunciation most commonly used in Scandinavia. All ways are appropriate and accepted and I think all could work in English, here in the States. I would use the pronunciation you like and maybe what reflects your heritage. You may have to inform people how to pronounce her name - Once corrected I think people will remember. You could check out Appellation Mountain's Name of the Day post about Lucia - it covers the breakdown of pronunciation I mentioned above. Other options if you're not sure about Lucia: Luciana and Lucienne.
Loo-see-uh Raised half my life in Ohio, half in Texas.
