    Lucius or Lucian?

    I'm just interested in seeing which form is preferred on Nameberry. I've lumped the spellings of Lucian together, since I want to see which ending is the favorite, S or N. I love both forms; which one is my favorite depends on the day. They both have pros and cons.

    Feel free to comment, especially on how you pronounce the names and why you prefer one over the other (Lucius Malfoy comes to mind...)
    Thanks!

    I prefer Lucius. Sure, there's Malfoy, but I prefer the "s" endings over the "n" endings. They feel cooler and classier to me.

    Giving this a nudge back to the first page...Lucius remains ahead by one vote so far!

    Lucius, hands down. It's more esthetically pleasing to my eyes, I love the two s-sounds, it feels light a starry ice cold winter's night, like a whisper... And there's Lucius Malfoy. Now, I know he's not the nicest man in the Harry Potter universe, but man is he hot!!! In the books, yes, and the movies... major crush on Jason Isaacs in general, but the hair and the clothes and the ice cold manners is just too good. I'm in general fascinated by the hotti-ness of the Harry Potter movies. But I'm going to stop as this is not a hot man discussion. Bad pregnant lady!
