My husband and I are constantly discussing names for a forth child, and I have a strong desire to name a girl after my mother - her name is Lucinda and she goes by Lucy.
I really like Lucia as a name, but the correct pronunciation is Loo-shah or Loo-chee-ah, neither of which I like. I prefer Loo-see-ah, but I'm not sure this is even an appropriate pronunciation.
So here are my questions:
1) how would you pronounce Lucia?
2) is Lucinda too heavy of a name for a baby?
3) I like the french derivative 'Lucinde' - any thoughts?
4) fancy middle name ideas?
Our other children are Evan, Holden, and Maeve.

I like Lucy as a nn for Lucinda. I think Lucinda, and Lucy, are good with your sibset.
Lucia can also be said LOOS-yah (I've heard Spanish speakers say this). Lucia, to me, is one of those names that presents a dreadful dilemma. I avoid saying these names aloud (Lucia, Adriana). Literally. Each person WITH the name said it differently than every other person with that name; each name has 3 or 4 pronunciations possible. So my probability of being incorrect & embarrassed were like 60-75% every time I said the name aloud. And it really hard for me to remember which pronunciation goes with which person. Sorry!
Lucinde is pronounced [loo-SIND]? If so, I think it is lovely.
Lucienne is French, and lovely and it is said: loo-SYEN
Middle name ideas depend on which version you pick, I think, but some suggestions for middle for Lucinda are:
Rosalind* My name is Adelaide Skye. I love to play with names.*Charlotte Eden - Preeya Noelle - Saffron Ava - Jane Calliope - Nula Rose - Xanthe Olivia - Seraphine Olive - Sadie Onnika - Mazarine Esme - Isra Havala - Tansy Hyacinth - Ephraim Maceo - Seth Constantine - Frank Israfel - Wolfram Zephyr - Miles Emmett - Walter Matteo - Malcolm Ephraim - Cynthia - Harlow - Kellan - Oswell - Lucy Isabeau - Rhiannon Holly - Rowan Evangeline - Tallulah Maisie - Ingrid Mazarine - Genevieve Monroe
