Not pg but was just thinking how I haven't met any little Lucys at any baby groups. Is it one of those rare 'well known but not ubiquitous' names? Might add it to list for mythical DD!

One. She's not really little though - she's five. And lovely! It's a great name.

3 or 4 and some older ones going up to about 11.

Its popular but not Ruby or Amelia popular.

I know a 6 year old, all the rest are in 30/40s

I know a seven year old and three women in their thirties.

I know one baby and one four year old. Most of the Lucys I know are in their 20s.

I teach and I know one now and one from 15 years ago. A lovely name!

Munchkin08 Mon 26-Oct-15 23:02:55

3 - 15 years up and a couple from school 40 years.

Pobspits Mon 26-Oct-15 23:05:56

1 aged 4, 1 aged 5 and 2 aged 9

Gorgeous name. I know a few but don't think it's massively over done. Definitely don't hear it as often as Amelia, Olivia etc. always loved this name.

CharleyDavidson Mon 26-Oct-15 23:07:20

I know 3, but all about 8 or 10 years old. (I am a teacher so know a lot of children though.)

insan1tyscartching Mon 26-Oct-15 23:14:44

I have one almost 13 and there is one other in her year at school.I don't know any small ones though.

MeAndTheMajor Mon 26-Oct-15 23:24:54

One, age 4. She's a Lucie though.

SuckingEggs Mon 26-Oct-15 23:26:31

None. Two in their 20s though.

Great name.

None, but i do know several in their 20's and 30's.

I know 2, my dd (10) and a friend's daughter (8)

But I do know a few adult Lucys, and I always think it sounds like a girl's name not a woman's. The adult Lucys I know are all nice, competent adults, but I still feel they have a 'young' name.

But there are a couple of names I feel like that about, Robin and Wendy being two others.

So our Lucy is actually her shortened name. She has a gorgeous longer name, which I can't share because it is Dutch and very uncommon, and so would out her. At the moment she is known as Lucy in UK and longname in Holland. I am hoping she choses to use her longer name more as an adult.

Three. One is 5, one is 2 and the youngest is 3 months old.

hufflebottom Tue 27-Oct-15 15:00:26

Spooky. My dd has decided that this is what we've got to call dc if its a girl.

chrome100 Tue 27-Oct-15 15:09:46

Interesting that you called your own DD Lucy then steppenmum, she's going to be a grown up too in five or ten years grin

steppemum Tue 27-Oct-15 16:03:06

chrome, if you read the whole post, hmm she isn't called Lucy. That is a short name, like Becky for Rebecca.

Obviously she can chose to continue to be called Becky as an adult, or revert to Rebecca.

steppemum Tue 27-Oct-15 16:17:28

and Becky is another one for my list of girl's names and it is my name!

MidnightRed Tue 27-Oct-15 16:18:46

Three. All women in their thirties.

KittyandSqueal Tue 27-Oct-15 16:26:00

My dd is a Lucy. I didn't know any until I had her.ni now have 2 Lucy friends, have taught one and a new friends older (11) dd is Lucy.

I've yet to meet another Lucy her age though.
