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.~lucy reine~~ celestine eira ~ mary simona ~ elizabeth echo "ellie" ~ eleanor heaven "lena" ~ vivienne ailsa ~~ jasper red ~ evander lachlan 'evan'~ kai sacha ~ ezra link ~ satoshi rowan ~

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.Mom to Alexander Patrick (9), Madelyn Esther (7), and Genevieve Susan (2). Expecting Theodore James in February 2014!
Baby #4 will be the last for us, so I am kind of sad to be saying goodbye to the beloved names I will now never use! At least I can still come here to encourage others to use them!

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.
