    Which spelling would you use?

    Hi there.

    I am at a total loss on which spelling I prefer and which spelling would cause less headaches for a future daughter of mine.

    The spellings are Lucy and Lucie. I like both to be honest.

    I feel both have some good and bad points to them. It's why I am asking in this poll which one you would use.

    Thanks all.

    I LOVE the idea of Lucie, especially with the Dickensian literary cred. But for practicality, I'd go with Lucy, unless you don't mind saying "Lucie with an -ie" a lot (and maybe that won't be a major bother for you).

    Lucy due to it being more common and intuitive to the ears. Great name you got.

    For most names I like them better ending in -ie, but Lucy is one of the exceptions to that. Beautiful name!

    Lucy is much more common and will therefore cause fewer headaches for you and your daughter. Lucie also looks like it's short for Lucille or Lucinda, whereas Lucy looks like a complete, full name.

    As a teacher I would definitely say Lucy, it's the obvious spelling. Lucie doesn't sound any different so I'm always for the most common/recognised spelling.

    Lucy is the easier option. A child called Lucie will forever be correcting people on how to spell her name, as most people won't even think to question such a common spelling. Lucie is fine as a nickname, but if going for the full name I would suggest sticking to Lucy

    Love Lucy! Would stick with the original spelling to avoid confusion and corrections.
