  1. We love the meaning of her name. So special and true for her.
    There is Max Lucado children’s book called You Are Special and the character In it named Lucia is unique in that she doesn’t care what the world thinks of her, only what her Creator thinks of her. It is what we hope for our daughter as well.

  2. My husband and I had a few names that we liked to choose from, but the name Lucia kept coming to my mind when I would think about her. I told my husband and he said, ” Well I guess that is her name.”
    I just couldn’t call her any name but Lucia.
    Also Lucia means light and I thought that was very appropriate since I am working on overcoming anxiety and depression.
    Also Lucia is the name of one of the children that our Lady of Fatima appeared to. One of my friends later told me after Lucia was born that on the day of her birth that the EWTN tv channel was playing an episode starring Lucia.
    Surley it is God’s will that we named our baby girl Lucia.

  3. Its a lovely name and i love the fact that it means light.

  4. I love the name because it’s short, sweet and I don’t hear it around at all. Old fashioned name that still sounds fresh and cute for baby to older as well.
    only thing is people pronounce it differently. Like (Loo-sha), or (Lucy). But still love it anyways. ???

  5. Because Lucia was a great saint of the Catholic Church, and a short and nice name

  6. We love Lucille Ball, and liked the idea of calling our daughter Lucy. Then we heard of St. Lucia and decided to go with that instead of Lucille. She abbreviates her name as Luci. This name can be pronounced several ways, ours is said like a Spanish version.

  7. We wanted a family name and this name checked a lot of boxes on both sides. “Lucian” was my husband’s late grandfather’s name. “Lucielle” was my late grandmother’s name. “Louise” is my mother’s middle name. It’s Italian, which is my heritage. We call her “Lucy” for short, but I like that she has the option of using a full name later in life should she want to.
