What do you think of the name Lucy?

I love it, I think it is so cute and sweet but not too childish, a classy name at all ages --- BUT is it too common/popular and boring?

Do you know a lot of Lucy's, more than one Lucy in your child's class etc?

Thanks all.

What do you think of Lucy Abigail or Lucy Ava?

Very cute.

Definitely Lucy Abigail. Lucy Ava sounds like a funny made up word when you say it quickly.

What are her/your grandmothers' names? Nothing nice you could use there?

I love the name Lucy. I have a good friend (mid-thirties) who was the only one Lucy in our class at school and I only know one little Lucy.

Lucy Abigail flows a little better than Lucy Ava, but I prefer the name Ava over Abigail! I don't know that many with the name & so it could be a good choice if you want something pretty & classic & not overly used.

Gosh, I can't imagine knowing so many small children that a DOZEN of them are called Lucy. Where are these hotbeds of Lucidom? I have only met three in my life: one aged around 50, other two in 20s/30s. It's a great name smile

Lucy was a very popular name when I was at school, there were 3 in my year group of 100 (40 girls). However, I don't now know anyone called Lucy who is under 25 (and I'm a teacher). It's a lovely name.

I'm in southeast London. I haven't heard of very many at all round here. But heard about 4/5 being called in Cornwall when we were on holiday. Still not especially common IMO.

Lovely name - underused at the minute for babies/children but there are quite a few my age (1990)
