I actually quite like the name Lucinda. My best friend has this name - her name is Lucy but her actual name is Lucinda.
It's such a pretty, elegant cute name. It gives off positive vibes which is what my friend gives off. She's mature and quiet in certain situations but has an amazing personality and has a crazy/funny side to her that she only really shows to her friends. She really represents this name well.

This is such a pretty name, I really love it.
It's so unique, and it's so pretty. I think of a snowy winter day when I think of the name Lucinda.
I think of a wonderful cheerful girl with a warm personality, despite the weather I think of.
Lucinda is in my Top 10.

My name is Lucinda - I've always disliked the fact that my name was 'uncommon' but have now started to appreciate much more over a Chloe or Emma.

To my friends and family I have alwaya been Cinda - for some reason I have never gotten Lucy and have always hated it when I do!

I like it, it's pretty underused and a good alternative to Lucia and Linda.

Lucinda is a beautiful name. No nickname should be used if you are lucky enough to be named Lucinda.

Fell in love with this name when I heard it in the TV miniseries "Lace" from the book of the same name back in the 1990's. The name was Lucinda Lace. The story didn't stick with me through the years, but I remember that pretty name Lucinda Lace.

I love this name and struggled to get agreement from my husband to give this name to our daughter. The drawbacks from his perspective were nicknames Lu, Luci, Cinda, Cindy and Linda. I finally persuaded him. Of course this may be a cautionary tale. Be careful what you ask for when you are 8 months pregnant, as well as be careful what you agree to in order to keep your 8 months pregnant wife happy. For the last 14 years we have constantly corrected people who are determined to force a nickname on Lucinda. The worst offenders are the parents of her friends as well as her teachers. My daughter loves her name and doesn't want a nickname. Let this be a reminder to respect the name of others regardless of what you think might be "cute" or shorter or easier for you. Give the person the respect of their own name.

My name is Lucinda and when I was young I hated the name. They call me Lucy for short, also Lucifer but I'm a good person at heart until you do wrong to me, my kids or family. I always wondered why a lot of witches are named Lucinda- it kinda creeps me out because there is a lot of witchcraft crap that goes on around here and I promise I'm not the evil side of Lucifer, I'm the great angel that was meant to be on God's side and I will continue to be on his side forever and always. No one, not even the devil will be able to touch me because I belong to my heavenly father up above. Lucinda, Lucifer... they're just names- what counts is your heart and soul and I got too much of it.

Lucinda is my first name as well.. but I get a lot of nicknames hehe.. not just the usual Lucy or Cindy..
I'm Lu, Luc, Luci, Cindy, Cinny and the ultimate nickname I get called the most is Cinda.

I'm absolutely in love with my name and wouldn't change it. It's common, I won't lie, but it has a certain uniqueness to it. Elegantly mature name, truly.

My name is Lucinda, but I'm called and I sign my name as Luci.
I never liked using Lucy as a diminutive for Lucinda, because to me it's a different name, and there's not a "y" in Lucinda. Plus, people forget my name all the time (even if I'm preferring a different name) and I tend to find explaining my name easier to remember.

I adore this name- it sounds beautiful and elegant and has a couple of great nicknames too. Lucy or Cindy are my favourites, they sound great but in my opinion are too overly common and lack sophistication to be used as the full names in their own right where Lucinda sounds very intelligent and proper. I will for sure use Lucinda as a name if I am lucky enough to have a daughter of my own someday in the future :)

Lucinda is my first name and I was named after a great grandmother. I've met 4 other Lucinda's over the years, even going through middle and high school with one of them. Small world! My nickname is Cindy and no one ever guesses that it's short for Lucinda.

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.

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.

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. :)

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.

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!
