Hi all

I have just gone 8 weeks pregnant and have started looking through the odd baby name book. I have come across the name Lucelia, which I think I like but not sure if it is just too over fussy. What do people thing? Is it a yay or a nay?

Thanks x

Other names we are considering are Tabitha and Juliet.
We have got two LO already called James and Isabel x

It's pretty, but you might find people struggle with pronunciation (or maybe that's just me!).

I love Lucia but this seems a bit much.

Way too fussy for me. It would need spelling out all the time

What about Lucina?

It's Portuguese, isn't it? And it's usually spelled with an acute accent on the 'e'. In which case the usual pronounciation would be Loo-SAY-lyah.

I think that it's rather pretty, but, as others have already said, you might find people have problems with saying it.

Lucilla is easier to pronounce.

(I really like Juliet)

Much prefer Lucia, Lucy or Celia!

Yes, I agree that the pronunciation will probably be an issue. Thanks for all your comments grin

I don't like the spelling, i suggest Lucille..
Juliet is a nice name too.

I'm not keen on Lucelia, tbh, but I adore Juliet, it's beautiful.

prefer Luella if you want a variation on Lucy.

Why not just go for Celia, very pretty and classic and not so fussy?

I like Tabitha with James and Isabel.

Hmm, sounds like a blend of Lucia and Celia to me - prefer both of those names to Lucelia.

Maggie, Luella is very poor trashy South American. Nasty.
