Lucia, Lucia, Lucia!
Let’s talk about Lucia. I’m really loving it lately, what with the Christmas season in full force and thoughts of St. Lucia and Jesus, the light of the world.
I’m saying it LOO-shah, and I love the nn Lou or Lulu. If you met a Lucia “LOO-shah” (or even loo-CHEE-ah, my second favorite pronunciation–and the Italian one!)–would you instinctively nn her Lucy? I’ve never been a Lucy fan (sorry, Lucy lovers!), and would like to avoid it, but I do really love Lucia (and Lou/Lulu!).
Combo ideas? What would you pair with it? Anything I can think of, I’m not terribly fond of. Lucia Madeleine or Lucia Charlotte are about the closest I can get to something I genuinely like, but I’m not swooning over either of them…
