I really like the name pronounced Loo-SEE-ah. However I am not sure on the best spelling. Lucia or Lucilla? I know traditional spanish and Italians would pronounce Lucia as Loo-CHEE-a or Lou-sha (like the island) and they would spell my pronounciation Lucilla because the double L pronounces as a Y. But I am worried that most Canadians/Americans would pronounce the L's in Lucilla like Loo-SIL-a, kind of like Godzilla. What are your thoughts?
That's a tough one. I would probably pronounce Lucia as Loo-see-a since I'm an American. That is how it looks to me although I would wonder if I should pronounce it Loo-chee-a. I honestly don't care for the the other spelling at all. I could see myself saying Loo-sill-a.
