Lucia

Love it . The only one I knew of was extraordinarily pretty so I think that's why. She got called Cia.

Is it pronounced Loo-Seer or Loo-Cheer.

TealLove Thu 14-Apr-16 17:09:01

Loo che a
Pretty isn't it?

It's a lovely name.

RiverTam Thu 14-Apr-16 18:27:02

Love it though I'd pronounce it Loo-see-ah, unless you're Italian.

CaptainAnkles Thu 14-Apr-16 18:43:10

Yes only on a dark haired, olived skinned girl though

I like it but would also pronounce it Loo-see-ah unless you're Italian.

doceodocere Thu 14-Apr-16 19:27:00

Loo chee ah, definitely.

I know a charming 7 year old with this name. Lovely.

I do, but agre that there may be pronunciation issues.

I like it but would also pronounce it Loo-see-ah unless you're Italian.
That's what I was thinking. Lucia is a beautiful name and refreshing to hear but unless you are Italian pronouncing with the 'chia' ending is going to add confusion.

To be honest I think the 'sia' pronunciation is prettier x

I love it and would say Loo - che - a - I don't see the problem with the pronunciation, but I am a fan of the Mapp and Lucia books.

English pronunciation was traditionally Loo-sha (as in the Caribbean island St Lucia). Spanish is Loo-see-a. Italian is Loo-chee-a. There are other ways to say it as well, so it could be a bit confusing! Pretty name, though, more interesting than Lucy.

Another Mapp and Lu-chi-a fan here!

The Lucia I taught was pronounced
Loo-sha.
Very pretty name

I was at school with a Loesje, pron Loosher, the Dutch version.
