My mom's name is Lucinda, but she doesn't use it regularly. She uses it in important signatures. Usually, people call her Cindy for short.

Lucinda is my middle name and although I rarely use it, except when filling in a form, I really like it. I try to get people to guess what my middle name is and no one has ever guessed correctly (so far). I have always thought that my first and middle names, Jennifer Lucinda make me sound as if I should be wearing jodpurs and riding in Point to Point events!

I love this name! For me, it takes the sweet innocence of Lucy and makes it even sweeter with just a touch of elegance and grace. Very lovely.

I think this is a really nice name that suits all ages, and all attitudes (characters). Yes, great name, I recommend you use it if you like it, because it's neither overly common nor extremely rare, which makes it very lovely. :)

The name Lucinda is pretty, I don't like the nickname Lucy for it though - just Lucinda is nice.

Lucinda is a literary gem.

Another famous character is Lucinda ' Lucette' Veen, central to Vladimir Nabokov's 1969 novel 'Ada or Ardor: A Family Chronicle.'

My name is Lucinda, and I find it somewhat sad that hardly anyone calls me that, abandoning it in favor of the shorter and easier-to-remember "Lucy". Whenever I tell people my name, they tend to ask if I prefer to be called something else. I suppose they might think that I'm embarrassed by it... though I don't really see why. I know that I've only ever met two other people called Lucinda in my life. I like that it's quite a unique name.

This is my first name and I love it. It is unique and classy. It can be abbreviated when necessary. I was the only one in my school with the name. It's pretty and feminine and just gorgeous.

I fell in love with this name last year when I started reading the Fallen series by Lauren Kate.

Lucinda is just so darling and vintage and I love the nickname Lucy.
I have it paired on my list as Lucinda Ivy.
