Lucy is an English variation on Lucius, and it means "light." It's been on a slow but steady climb toward the top since the early 1990s, and is currently the 66th most popular name in the U.S. The most popular namesakes are, of course, Lucy Van Pelt, Charlie Brown's bossy neighbor, and Lucille Ball's wacky
I Love Lucy character.
Lucy Marie fits well with her sibling's names—like Miller and Jackson, it's popular and timeless. In all, they've picked a lovely name that you'd definitely hear on your local playground—no crazy celebrity name here! (If you want to celebrify Lucy Marie—or your own kid's name—check out our Celebrity Fame Name Generator for inspiration. That turned Lucy Marie to the more offbeat Lala Maliboo!)
