Lucretia is the name of Madam Director in The Adventure Zone, a podcast by the McElroy family. She's a lovely character!

Lucretia doesn't sound pretty to me at all. Sounds like the name of a rich but villainous woman.

Lucretia is a Megadeth song.

The first thing that comes to my mind when I hear this name is Lucrezia Borgia. So, I don't know what to think about that at all...

What a strong, beautiful, awesome name.

The mythical Lucretia committed suicide after her "defilement", because honor demanded it. It's a good name for a tragic character, someone who blithely follows what honor demands to the detriment of herself or others, but I wouldn't name a kid this.

I find out about this name when I heard about Lucretia Mott. I really hate the sound of this name. It sounds so ugly and harsh.

Actually, I've changed my mind over what I said about the name Lucretia. I don't have a problem with this name at all anymore. I think this name is beautiful and unique. :) You never expect names that you originally dislike to grow on you! :D.

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

It's okay... something makes me think the nicknames are better, though.

There's an Earth, Wind and Fire song called "Lucretia MacEvil", which is pretty catchy actually.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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 is the name of Sephiroth's mother in the game Final Fantasy VII and its spinoffs. She was also the love interest of Vincent Valentine.

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.

Lucretia Merces of Suikoden V.

NO, the pronunciation is Loo-CREE-sha.
TheLastMontague  4/14/2007
Perhaps the name has a relation to the word "lucre", meaning "profit", which is derived from Latin "lucrum". [noted -ed]

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