How would you pronounce Lucia?
I have seen Loo-CHEE-uh and Loo-sha used before but recently I met a little girl and she said her name as Loo-see-uh. I am a little intrigued by this pronunciation and I think it makes the name very soft. What pronunciations have you heard? How would you pronounce it? Do you think Loo-see-uh could be a legitimate pronunciation?

The Spanish-background people I know say loo-see-uh, loo-chee-uh is Italian Both are legitimate, I don't diss either, but I love the Spanish pronunciation more, for its softness.
Occasionally in Australia (which has more Italian-speaking people than Spanish-speaking people) I've heard loo-see-uh dissed as "wrong" but it's not really - unless the particular Lucia doesn't like that, of course. In the US East Coast city I was from I think loo-see-uh was more popular, overall.
