Which would you choose?

Lucie reminds me of Lucie Mabel Atwell.

Lucie looks so much prettier IMO.

I would assume it was spelled the more common 'Lucy' though until told otherwise.

This is one alternative spelling name that I actually like. Lucie does look pretty. Use it! It's not like Jayme or Kaytee

Lucy so she does not spend her life explaining how to spell her name.

What Amy said. Haven't heard the word Twerp in ages made me smilegrin

TobyLerone Sun 26-May-13 06:50:16

Lucie. It's prettier.

My sis is Lucie and she has never minded spelling it for people.

I have a Lucie. She too was inspired by Mrs Tiggywinkle.

Although my mum was horrified that she'll never get an xmas bauble from the garden centre with her name on. Even better i thought grin

Go with Lucie. It will probably get spelt wrong from time to time, but I suspect so do most other names.
It is very pretty!

I do like Lucie- that is the French spelling and not simply a mis-spelling or someone trying to add a modern twist hmm

However, to make life easier, a Lucy would make sense if you're in the UK.
Although I personally prefer Lucie!

amandine07 Sun 26-May-13 09:37:34

I think Lucie is prettier than just Lucy

PistachioTruffle Sun 26-May-13 09:59:20

I also think Lucie is a prettier spelling, and I say this as a person who has spent her entire life spelling my name out to all and sundry!
If you love the Lucie spelling, go for it.

KittenofDoom Sun 26-May-13 13:51:44

Lucy, definitely. I find something horribly twee about -ie endings to most names.

TBH working with children, when told the said name - currently Lucie is the first spelling option for me.

toffeelolly Sun 26-May-13 14:21:13

Lucie for me, look,s betterwink

diamondsneezer Sun 26-May-13 14:25:26

Use what you like.

There are a lot of alternative spellings for names - Sara/Sarah, Jon/John, Lizzy/Lizzie, Freddy/Freddie and for my poor friend Victoria - Vicky, Vikki, Vicki.

There aren't that many that are safe to be honest. So if it looks right to you, it is right.

FingersCrossedLegsNot Sun 26-May-13 16:25:30

Lucy....anything else is just wrong!

SixPackWellies Sun 26-May-13 16:29:42

Go with Lucie. You love it. It is an accepted name. You have a history of an attachment to it.

It's your DD!'.

Plus, it is pretty.

Go for it, I say.

ghosteditor Sun 26-May-13 16:33:58

Lucie. I know a fabulous 20-something Lucie and it's not an issue. People have an extraordinary ability to misspell any old name, so I wouldn't think it's an issue.

Go with what you love - especially in this case when it's a common variant.

Lucie, you like it, it's pretty, why not.

And how can it be new-fangled or 'just wrong' for goodness sake, when it appears in Beatrix Potter and Dickens (Tale of Two Cities)??

Lucee, however, would be a different matter.

LittleMissLucy Mon 27-May-13 04:10:52

I like Lucie. Lucy is the chambermaid, Lucie is the French novelist. Or something like that.

amessagetoyouYoni Mon 27-May-13 12:50:36

Yes, Lucy is the classic Nd most commonly used Emglish spelling.

But Lucie isnt 'made up'...its French! And actually much more commonly used in other countries, too, as a diminutive of Lucille, Luciana, Lucia etc
