    I love both names but I slightly prefer Lucian. It's a softer choice. Lucius may get "luscious". I'm not into Harry Potter so I could care less with that assocation.

    I pronounce them with only two syllables: LOO-shen and LOO-shus.
    All the best,

    Well I prefer Lucius...I may be a bit biased though

    I love Lucius because of its history (makes me think of big strong Roman soldiers). But I also love how tough and masculine it is yet how soft it can sound. It just gives off a feeling of light (obviously) and makes me think of sunshine and shooting stars. Also I love the name Lucifer (but could never use it because the majority of people think of the devil which... technically they are completely separate beings but whatever) and its nice to have that small angel connection.

    You just can't get those same things with Lucian. And with kind of just bores me just looking at it. Also I can't for the life of me remember how to pronounce it. I think there will be a bit more confusion over the spelling (because of Lucien). It just doesn't have that ancient world charm...for me anyway

    I pronounce the name Loo-shus.

    I prefer Lucian, mostly because Lucius is too Malfoy for me...

    I visually like Lucius better but like the sound of Lucian better.
    Also Lucius is just one of the villain names that keep popping up all over the place.
    Even if you decide you don't mind, I think it's worth consideration while naming a child.
