Which would you chose Lucille or Lucy?

Is Lucy too popular?

I'd probably choose Lucy, though I'd be tempted by Lucille since it was my grandmother's middle name.

Lucy has quickly been rising in popularity... # 101 in 2009. Lucille has been rising as well, but it was #570 in 2009. Lucille is on our short list, and not Lucy for this reason.

I would choose Lucy personally. I don't think it's overly popular. It's a name that has a classic quality but still seems fresh to me. I also grew up with a mother that is obsessed with I Love Lucy, so the name has a lot of meaning to me. :)

I don't think you can go wrong with either name.

Hm, I like Lucy over Lucille but I do have two friends (separate circles) with kids names Lucy.
