Pronounced loo-CEE-ah in Sweden. Sankta Lucia Day is today - December 13th.

As a little girl, I would dress up in a plain white dress and wear a hard plastic green crown with white stuff and artificial candles on it. My family would drive up to a Swedish town that's about a half-hour away. I would go through all of the restaurants and stores with a plate of either cookies or candy, and offer a treat to anyone who passed by.

I think Lucia is a nice name. My favorite pronunciation is Loo-See-a but I like Loo-Sha too. One of my friend's name is Lucia and some pronounce it Loo-See-A but it's Loo-Sha.

What a beautiful name! I prefer Loo-see-a however! Still gorgeous!
-- ciarakiki_xx  8/8/2006
I say LOO-sha, and love it that way. It's a gorgeous name.

What a pretty name! I want to name my daughter this. It's lovely. I would call her Lulu or Lucy as a nickname.

This is also a guy's name, and I am not making this up. It sounds really good for a guy, better than for a girl I think.

Isn't St. Lucia an island in the Caribbean?

Upon seeing this name, I love it! I don't like the whole gouged eyes, though. :(
-- dreadfulxsorry  1/31/2007
The eyes gouged out thing is of no consequence. Lots of saints came to awful ends but that means nothing about the name.

I love this pronounced Loo-chee-ah.

Lucia is also the Slovak version. [noted -ed]

This is a beautiful name. Any way you pronounce it, whether it be the English "lu-sha" or Italian "lu-CHEE-ah" or the Spanish "lu-SEE-ah" - it's darling.
My only concern about this traditional "older sounding" elegant name is that it's quickly becoming very popular, and I fear it will be in the top 10 in the not too distant future. Look at names like Sophia, Isabella, and Emma - numbers 1-3 for 2007, respectively.
-- edenrowe  12/29/2007
I love this name! It sounds so nice. I like the meaning of it to, "brings light into the darkness." I also like several nicknames that could go with this name, such as "Lucy" or "LuLu." And the name is not common in the United States yet, nor is the name Lucy. Of course that could change.

Slovak pronunciation is "luw-TSI-ah".
-- Emilie007  11/7/2008
I have a cousin named Lucia; even though we're British we pronounce it the Italian way: lu-chee-ah. I like it pronounced this way and didn't know there were other ways to pronounce it.

(No wonder my boyfriend thinks she's Italian if I pronounce it this way lol).

But overall, I think it's a very pretty name.
-- walesgal92  2/17/2009
I am named Lucia, and most of the time I love it, but sometimes I think it should be used a bit more often.

I love this name, it seems very regal to me. Lol I also named this but she goes by Lulu for short.

Latin pronunciation is Loo-kee-ah with stress on the first syllable.

My mother's name is Lucia and she hates it when people call her LOO-sha, it is a Spanish name and it means light. The right way is luc-EYA.

Love this name so much! And the nickname Lucy is adorable. (:

I had my daughter two weeks ago and my husband and I named her Lucia. We are overjoyed. She fits her name perfectly since she has brought light into our life and much love.
-- mrs monique  4/26/2011
Beautiful, classic Italian name for a girl. Use it instead of choosing the over-popular Sofia.
-- stairwaytoastar  4/20/2012
Lucia (1531-1532) was the daughter of Albert, Duke of Prussia and his wife Dorothea of Denmark. She died young. Her younger sister (1537-1539) was also named Lucia, after her older deceased sister.
-- CarolinW  6/12/2012
Love the Italian pronunciation Lou-chee-ah, the English version sounds like you're dragging out the name Lucy. It's just not as pretty to me.
-- Anonymous User  1/12/2013
This name is 'okay'. I'm not crazy about it and would never use it, but the meaning ('light') is pretty. If you have a relative you want to honor (a Lucy, Luciana, Lucia, etc..) it would be a nice middle name. I think it would go well with many first names.

In October of 2012, 6 year-old Lucia Krim and her 2 year-old brother Leo were murdered by their Nanny in Manhattan, New York. Senseless and sad story and hate to post it, but when I read this name I think of her. Little Lucia was absolutely beautiful. Her image and name are still in the headlines because the shocking crime rocked NYC. Anyway, little Lucia Ursula Krim went by the nickname 'Lulu'. Lulu is a better alternative nickname than 'Lucy' IMO. In this day of Emily's, Sophia's, Alexis's and Isabella's, the name Lucia definitely stands out. I like the Spanish pronunciation LOO-SEE-YA not LOO-CHEE-AH.

My sister was going to be called Lucia (pronounced loo-sha) because my mum and dad were married in St Lucia. However my nanna convinced my mum that the name was too unusual and would cause too much confusion so she changed it to Lucie, which in my opinion is not nearly as beautiful as Lucia.
-- Maisie  4/29/2014
I'm named Lucia, and I didn't really liked my name until while ago, but now I really do and I would never change it. I'm from Croatia, my mum wanted it to be pronounced loo-chi-a (Italian), but it is little unusual here to pronounce that name like that so I and all my friends pronounce it loo-cee-a (with hard c). I love also the way loo-see-a sounds, but I hate loo-sha.
