Lucy comes from the Latin meaning of "light" and "light bringer". In Spanish it can be translated into Lucita and in Italian it is Lucia.

Lucy is also the name of the youngest girl in the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C S Lewis. She is the one who discovers the wardrobe and is also given the power to heal.
Emma2323  12/10/2005
Lucy Pevensie, as mentioned before, IS the primary heroine of 'The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,' but she is also in 'Prince Caspian,' 'The Voyage of the *Dawn Treader*,' 'The Horse and His Boy,' and 'The Last Battle.' C.S. Lewis dedicated 'The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe' to a girl he knew whose name was Lucy.

Lucy was Lucille Ball's character in "I Love Lucy."
breakofday  12/17/2005
My name is Lucy and I absolutely LOVE my name. The meaning behind it is wonderful. To me "light bringer" means to bring happiness, love, cheer, life and truth. Every now and then I have been asked if my full name was Lucille, but it is not. However, I do like the I Love Lucy show. : )
lucy_althea  2/2/2006
Pretty, cute and dainty. Nothing special, but yeah. I like it more because it either reminds me of Lucille Ball's hilarious, screwball and perky character in "I Love Lucy" or of the innocent, loving, yet intuitive young Lucy Pevensie from "The Chronicles of Narnia."

Nice enough name, but whenever I see it, I think of that annoying girl from 7th Heaven. Anyway, I prefer the spelling Lucie. No offense to anyone with this name; this is just my humble opinion.

I think Lucy is such a cute, sweet and inspiring name! It had always reminded me of Lucy Pevensie as well. :-)

Lucy is a pretty name and I think it suits people of all ages. It's a fairly common name, but not the most popular name in the world. Certainly not as common as it was in the past. It's a name that you know, but you don't hear too often.
FairyGirl  6/9/2006
This is one of my middle names and I think it is very pretty and is fairly common. But I always think of a Lucy as a curly and blonde haired girl with big blue eyes who is a spoilt brat, and who gets her dad to buy her everything so I wouldn't use it as that picture is rather negative.
― Anonymous User  7/5/2006
This is one of my middle names and although I think it is quite plain on its own it is a good name to use to link one or two together. I say that it is plain because it is simple and isn't particularly exciting - I think it suits a young child far more than an adult.

Lucy is my name. And I rather like it. Although it is a shortened version of Luangi, which is my real name.

Lucy Westenra is a character in Bram Stoker's novel Dracula. She was a friend of Mina and one of Dracula's first victims. I think it's a cute name for a redhead, although that could be because in the 1992 film Lucy was a redhead.

My first name is not Lucy, it's my middle name - but I have always been called by Lucy. I love it, the meaning is wonderful. It's also Ancient Roman (being based on Lucius, which is another reason I love it, as my surname is the name of the first Roman standard bearer in England. I love my Ancient Roman name!

This name was famously given to the fossilized remains of a member of Australopithecus afarensis, an extinct hominid. The partial skeleton was unearthed in 1974 and nearly everyone who has taken high school biology or anthropology since then should be familiar with this connection.

I love this name! It makes me think of Bram Stoker's Dracula. There was a character named Lucy in the movie version that came out in 1992. The actress Sadie Frost played the part of Lucy. The name sounds very Victorian to me. It's such a nice name in my opinion. Hopefully, it doesn't become too popular here in the United States. I hate when a name becomes too popular.
Coffeebean  1/13/2008
Lucy is a common but pretty name. You can never be too old or too young for it.
― Anonymous User  2/7/2008
I like Lucy as well. Just a note, but Lucille is a familiar form of Lucy, not the other way around. Also, Lucy Westenra of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel Dracula is not short for Lucinda. In fact, Lucinda, like Lucille, is a familiar form of Lucy. The character's name is Lucy and the name Lucinda is not mentioned anywhere in the novel.

One of the world's first set of sextuplets are born in Chicago, Illinois. (There were reported but unverified earlier births of sextuplets being born in U.S. on December 30, 1831, in Italy in 1844 and in Maine in 1847) The Bushnell family delivers six babies, three boys, Alberto, Laberto and Norberto, and three girls, Alice Elizabeth, Alincia, and Lucy. Laberto and Lucy die at birth but we believe the other four babies survived the birth. Alinica reportedly survives to age 85, dying on March 27, 1952 in Warsaw, New York. We've also seen a Guinness Book reference that claimed all six sextuplets survived at least two months.

I have to say that I find the name rather bland and unimaginative, but that's just my opinion.

I tend to relate this name to the Beatles' song, 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds', which is very lovely. I love this name, it's short and sweet.

I will always associate Lucy with Across the Universe/"Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds." I think this is one of few names that have been around for a really long time, but haven't gone out of style.

Lucy Stone was a suffragist and abolitionist in the 1800s. She was the first recorded woman in America to keep her maiden name after marrying, and the first woman in Mass. to earn a college degree.

She's one of my heroes because she had the courage to stand up for what she believed in and did what she thought was right, even if it would cause trouble for herself. I'd name a daughter after her.

Jonquil  10/26/2008
I go by Lusie (I might add that I prefer my spelling) and, as someone entering the "adult world", don't have any problems with it - it's short, simple, and fun. I think it will serve be wonderfully, but then, I don't have any corporate aspirations. I really think Lusie/Lucy/whatever is better suited as a middle name that can be used if the bearer chooses - it takes a certain personality and set of goals to pull it off past childhood and not make it childish or frumpy.

But has never been picked on for it either. I love the bringer of light meaning. And to top it all off Lucille was my favorite Grandmother's middle name, so she's kinda named after her.

hattie98  4/13/2014
I have a love and hate relationship with Lucy. For example, when I think of Lucy I am reminded of the name Lucifer and how they share the same beginning and meaning. Also, there's a tv show called Lucy about satan's daughter. But at the same time I love the sound of it and it's just so classy to me. Also, it's filled with history of a saint named Lucy, around during the BC era. I don't know many names with that history and I can't forget I love Lucy but most likely I'll use the male version Lucian or I'll just use it as a middle name.

Lucy Ann Delaney, born Lucy Berry, was an African-American author, former slave, and activist, notable for her 1891 narrative From the Darkness Cometh the Light, or, Struggles for Freedom. This is the only first-person account of a "freedom suit" and one of the few post-Emancipation published slave narratives.

The memoir recounts her mother Polly Berry's legal battles in St. Louis, Missouri for her own and her daughter's freedom from slavery. For her daughter's case, Berry attracted the support of Edward Bates, a prominent Whig politician and judge, and the future US Attorney General under President Abraham Lincoln. He argued the case of Lucy Ann Berry in court and won in February 1844. Their cases were two of 301 freedom suits filed in St. Louis from 1814 to 1860. Discovered in the late twentieth century, the case files are held by the Missouri Historical Society and searchable online.

Naming your daughter after Lucifer is a sin, but at least it is egalitarian in its feminist idea that women can be as evil as men.
angolmois  6/19/2017
And how exactly is that a sin? Lucy is a form of Lucius, not Lucifer. Two different names. By the way, not everyone is Christian, you know. It may be a "sin" to you, but not to some others (including me).

Lucy is a pretty cool name to me. Reminds me of Scarlett Johansson's character from the 2014 film of the same name.

My name is Lucy, and whilst my name is a fairly good one, I don't particularly like it. I've always thought of it as too childish- the "y" ending gives the impression of a diminutive suffix- and my friends always nicknamed me "Loo" in school. I also got "Lucy Goosey" quite a lot, which wasn't fun at all. On the upside, the meaning of "light" is quite a good one, and translates beautifully into Slavic and Greek. All in all, however, I tend to go by my nom de plume- Kara- as my middle name of May isn't really that great either in my opinion.
