I know a Lucie. Her actually name is Lucy, but she's been spelling it Lucie for ages, and I find if she gets post addressed to Lucy, it doesn't look like it's for her IYSWIM

Lucy.

Lucy

Lucie is the French spelling, not the incorrect spelling!

I love both. I have a friend called Hollie who isn't traumatised and in fact loves it.

Loving the irony of LittleMissLucy preferring Lucie! grin

Thinking about L names now- I also love Lucile/Lucille!
Just to throw another variation into the mix smile

I think you have very good reasons for going with Lucie. Go for it!

We were set on Lucie (Francophiles) then wimped out and went with Lucy on basis she'd always be spelling it.
I still think Lucie looks prettier plus I'm always having to spell my name and it's actually no big deal.

Lucy, but if you want to spell it Lucie then go for it!

Lucie, beautiful name

I've read Lucy/Lucie that many times its starting not to seem like a name at all!

Go with your gut instinct OP.

I have a Lucy and when she was a newborn a few people asked me which way we were spelling it, I think if you love Lucie definitely go for it.

I have a Lucy but wanted to spell it Lucie. Was persuaded that she would spend her life spelling it, which given our surname would be a pain.

The name means 'light'. Regardless of how it is spelt, it is a lovely name.

Lucie. Most people have to spell their names! smile

Lucie, though Lucy is lovely too.

How is an 'ie' ending seen as odd? You can't move here without falling over a Katie, Gracie or Evie.

I have a 'Lucie' and never questioned it. There are far more around than I initially thought. Yes, people do by default spell it with a -y ending but often they only need to be politely corrected once! Do what suits you - personally, I love the look of the -ie ending and always saw the -y diminutive as a tad boring. But, well, that's just my opinion!

Lucie is much more chic than Lucy. Think Countess rather than chambermaid wink

Lucy - more timeless and classic!
