Girls names that suit at any age?

Hi, due 4th May with my first, a little girl smile
We really like the name Lucy but there's a possibility DHs estranged brother recently called his new baby Lucy (not 100% sure as nobody speaks to him)
If we can't use Lucy, does anyone have any other ideas of similar names that would suit a girl at any age?

You could use Lucinda with Lucy as a diminutive

Just call her Lucy. It's lovely.

What do you mean by "would suit a girl of any age"?

You are naming a baby not a 14 year old.

Are you worried she might grow out of her name? Because it doesn't work like that! smile

Tbh if you never speak to him I'd just go with Lucy wether he'd used it or not.

Polly might be an alternative.
I love Lucy but Lucinda isn't very nice.

Herat - "You are naming a baby not a 14 year old. "
No, the opposite. You are naming a person, not a baby! The person will be a baby for a tiny fraction of their lives. Most of the time they are going to be an adult.

That's what I mean daisy. Badly worded perhaps.
I thought the request for a name that "suits any age" was odd.
You'd never choose a name for a 14 year old, or for anything but a baby. The name sort of grows with you.
You wouldn't not choose a name on the basis it sounds more like a name for a 14 year old. You'd choose a name you like.

MooChops89 Fri 16-Feb-18 14:17:20

Herat what I mean is, while "girly" baby girl names are lovely, i want her to have a name that wouldn't sound babyish when she's a teenager, or 40, or 80. So yes while I am naming a baby I'm thinking practically that she won't be a baby forever!

Loving some of these suggestions, lots of them have already been used by friends or family... choosing a name is hard!
