    The pronunciation problems of Lucia is why it's off my list. I say lou-SEE-uh, although Lou-shuh and Lu-CHEE-uh are growing on me. But my first name is so difficult pronunciation wise that I'm changing it, and so pronunciation that is obvious or common sense (Isla's borderline for me), is a must for names on my list.

    I've always thought it was pronounced loo-see-uh also. But I have a friend whose daughter is named after her great grandmother Leila, pronounced lee-eye-la, not lay-la. She will always have to teach people how to pronounce her name the first time, but it really isn't the end of the world. I like loo-chee-uh.

    If your last name starts with a Sh- then I think the best pronunciation would be Loo-see-uh. That is also how I always first pronounce it.

    Where I live, it would only be Lu see uh. I really don't care for the Lu chee a prn. Reminds me of a chia pet.
