What are your thoughts? Starting to think it's a bit 'safe'. She is here but I can't quite settle to the name. I've noticed a few posts about name regret on here, so glad I'm not the only one! Other contenders were Naomi and Rose. Honest opinions most welcome. We probably won't change her name anyway but it helps to discuss!

I really like Lucy, I think its classy and a classic. Think Rose is in the same category. Both lovely, age well names, to suit all professions!
Really not a fan of Naomi, sorry. Its a totally different style of name to me.

I think it takes a while to think of a newborn as their name , instead of 'the baby' 😊

Dislike lucy and naomi. Rose is ok.

ClaudiaApfelstrudel Sun 23-Oct-16 20:30:15

I like Lucy!

can't stand Naomi or Rose though

allegretto Sun 23-Oct-16 20:30:41

Love Lucy.

Love Lucy. It's one of my favourite names, but I can't use it because it sounds awful with my surname. angry

Naomi and Rose are both nice, but not as nice as Lucy.

For what it's worth, Lucy is supposedly quite popular where I live (I think it's in the 15-20 range on the popularity chart) but I have never known one.

Love Lucy. It's a name for any age.

I like Lucy, Although i'm bias as it's the girl next doors name who has an amazing job, lovely car, minted boyfriend and is very very stylish, o anytime I hear someone called Lucy I associate it with her and think its someone who's got their life together.

Not keen on Rose though - To golden girls I think, Naomi is quite nice but I think you picked a lovely name.

UnicornMadeOfPinkGlitter Sun 23-Oct-16 20:33:02

Lucy is a lovely name. I may be slightly biased though.

I'm really not keen on the name Naomi. Rose is ok but Lucy is better

ClaudiaJean2016 Sun 23-Oct-16 20:33:06

Lucy is the nicest. It's timeless. Naomi is OK. I really don't like Rose.

AlrightSon Sun 23-Oct-16 20:37:05

Lucy is a beautiful name.

SoftSheen Sun 23-Oct-16 20:38:37

Lucy is a beautiful name, and underused at present. Much nicer than Naomi or Rose.

NameChanger22 Sun 23-Oct-16 20:39:18

I love Lucy.

Ahh, thanks, you're cheering me up already! I do like the classic simplicity of Lucy, was just starting to worry that it was a bit lacking in 'character'. I think you're right though, the character comes from the person 'wearing' the name, and perhaps that takes a while to come through. I had more of an emotional connection to Rose, but a close friend used it recently and we decided it would have felt weird to use it too. Middle name was a family name - Heather, which I like but feel that neither were my first choice! Having said that, Lucy Heather is a lovely and surprisingly unusual name, so maybe I just need to get a bit 'badass' as I read in another thread and own it! You see, I'm talking myself around already. (And I know Rose doesn't go with Heather!).

Tattyjet Sun 23-Oct-16 20:42:27

Thanks again for your feedback! Very pleasantly surprised at the (majority) love for Lucy.

Stevefromstevenage Sun 23-Oct-16 20:43:31

Love it. I know one and she is one of my fav little girls.

MidnightVelvetthe7th Sun 23-Oct-16 20:45:19

I like Lucy and also Lucia smile

insan1tyscartching Sun 23-Oct-16 20:45:39

I have one and always have positive reactions. It's a name that grows with her so sounds just as good for a teenager as it did when she was a toddler. I have a Rosie too, she chose her sister's name.

Gunpowder Sun 23-Oct-16 20:50:46

Agree Lucy is timeless. It's a classic and has always been popular(ish), so I don't think will date as much as some other names ending in an 'e' sound that are popular at the moment. (Molly, Milly, Evie, etc.) Maybe go for an unusual middle name?

Gunpowder Sun 23-Oct-16 20:51:38

Sorry x post! Love Heather as middle.

Volatile Sun 23-Oct-16 20:52:34

Well, I really don't like Lucy, as you're asking, but I know a lot of them so clearly my view is not that of most. LOVE Rose though!

Keepingupwiththejonesys Sun 23-Oct-16 20:57:32

I'm biased with rose as that's the name we.are using if this baby is a girl. I like Naiomi but its just OK. Lucy is a lovely name and definitely timeless, also lobe heather as middle name.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sun 23-Oct-16 21:07:00

Lucy Heather is beautiful OP.

rainbow99 Sun 23-Oct-16 21:15:28

Lucy is a lovely name, it was on our list smile

rslsys Sun 23-Oct-16 21:29:26

We have a Lucy, middle daughter of three.
Liked the simplicity of it and have now discovered other Lucys in previous generations.
Gets 'abbreviated' to Lou, Looby Lou or Luce (pronounced loose!)
