    Emma vs. Lucy

    Emma has been a long time name love since my oldest son was born 11 years ago. However Lucy has been on my mind more and more lately as we talk about having a third child. What do you think of Emma Elizabeth vs. Lucy Elizabeth. Both short and sweet classic names paired with a stronger middle name. Sons are Trent and Ryan.

    I prefer Emma. It's mega popular for a reason. Emma is timeless, feminine, simple, and beautiful. Lucy is as well, but it's a bit too lacy for me.

    I love Lucy Elizabeth! Emma Elizabeth is really great too but I always thought Lucy was such a sweet name. And it ages really well too.

    I'm changing my name to Lucy, so I might be a little biased, but although Emma is timeless and beautiful, it's lost its identity among the seas of Emily, Amelia, Ella. I personally prefer the meaning of Lucy (light) to Emma (universal) as well.

    Lucy is also a saint's name, is part of the title in an iconic Beatles song, the titular character in the iconic TV series I Love Lucy, a Peanuts character, as well as the names of countless actresses and novel/movie characters.

    Emma is also way more popular than Lucy in the US and the UK.

    Congratulations on your decision to change to Lucy! It is a great name! If we were to have a boy one of our top boy names today is Luke (light)! So maybe I just need to follow the light!
