    I say Loo-shun. The Loose-ee-in pronunciation reminds me unfavourably of Lucifer or something. :/

    I prn either spelling as Loo-shun, but I think it probably depends on where you come from. I'm thinking people in the UK and Europe would be more likely to say Loose-ian, and people on this side of the pond would more likely say Loo-shun? I'm sure there are exceptions to each, but that's my guess.

    I live in the States, and say it as loo-shun. To me Lucien is more akin to loo-see-en.

    I agree with the Lucian=Loo-shen and Lucien=Loose-ian assumptions. My best friend has a son named Lucian (here in the US) and it's pronounced Loo-shen.

    I love many names, but the names that fit my family are the venerable old lived-in classics, unfussy, weighted with history, polished like stones through much use.
