My friend's name is VERY similar to this. Her name is Lacretia. But it is pronounced La-crish-a not La-cre-sha.

Perhaps the name has a relation to the word "lucre", meaning "profit", which is derived from Latin "lucrum". [noted -ed]

NO, the pronunciation is Loo-CREE-sha.

My father almost named me Lucretia, after his grandmother. However, my mom thought of nothing but Lucretia Borgia, the infamous poisoner, and saved me from having the name. Goodness, I'd have been named Lucretia Cassandra were it up to him. Lucky would be a cute nickname, though.

In the movie John Tucker Must Die (a very funny movie, by the way), Lucretia is a very, very, very minor character. She is the gothic girl in gym class who insists to the teacher that "My name is Lucretia!"

Lucretia Tox is a character in Charles Dickens' novel "Dombey and Son."

This is an absolutely beautiful name but I wouldn't feel happy naming my daughter after a victim of rape. It'd be like calling her Philomel or something. I don't know how many people would be aware of the namesake, though.

A famous Lucretia was Lucretia Borzia, famous for allegedly poisoning more than a dozen men.

The reputation of Lucrezia Borgia as a poisoner seems to have been undeserved. Her father, Rodrigo (the pope!), and brother Cesare, on the other hand, were mighty nasty characters.
-- Kosta  9/22/2008
Yeah, Lucrezia Borgia was nowhere near as bad as she was made out to be in myth. In fact, not a whole lot is known about her, besides that she was a member of a horrible and powerful family.
-- Clytemnestra  8/13/2009
The original Roman/Italian pronunciation is LOOK-RE-TSIA! and famous beautiful Borgia was not so much poisoner, but lover of her father (the pope) and three of her brothers, and about 50 another men.

"Lucretia, My Reflection" is an awesome song by the 80s 'gothic rock' band The Sisters of Mercy.

There's an Earth, Wind and Fire song called "Lucretia MacEvil", which is pretty catchy actually.
-- Clytemnestra  9/18/2010
It's okay... something makes me think the nicknames are better, though.

I like this name, but I like Lucrezia even better.

Am I the only one who thinks this is a ghetto name?
