Lucilina.  (I'm saying it "Lucy-lina" but sure my Nonna would say "Loochalina" which is okay but not sure which pronunciation i prefer yet)

DH doesn't know I like this name yet.  I thought I'd made it up as a hybrid name but no, it's a real one, apparently.  

One of DH's middle names is Luke so I thought if we have a girl that'd be a nice way to incorporate it while still "italian-ising" it which is what we've both agreed on for a girl's name, at least, due to my italian background and that long names suit short surnames better.  

WDYT?

I was pronouncing it "lucil-lina. I don't know OP, its not the worst name I have heard but I think it's a bit of a mouthful.

She will probably just get called Lucy anyway

It looks nice written down but go outside into your garden, call out "Lucilina" 5 times loudly (both pronunciations if you are trying to choose between them) and only then decide whether you like the name. It's a bit of a mouthful and you'll be saying the name more often than you write it.

That's why I like it.  Gives the option of nicknames.  Lucy.  Lina.  Looch!! original.gif

I like Luciana and Lucilla more than Lucilina which looks a bit in-between to my uneducated eye. I think both of those are used in Italian?

I do like Lina/Lena as a possible nickname, though.

Oh I do love a made up name!

Lucina is a real name. Pronounced Loo-china or Loo-seena.

I far prefer just Lucy - but then I'm not a follower of this 'long name to give options' school of thought

I'd rethink OP.  ph34r.gif

it's ok,  but I prefer Lucinda or Luciana or Lucina

I prefer Luciana or Lucilla.  Lucy Lina as separate names perhaps?

#11 Bel Rowley

Posted 31 January 2013 - 07:04 AM

I also prefer Luciana or Lucilla.

#12 Niamh23

Posted 31 January 2013 - 07:07 AM

I'd also reconsider...what about Lucinda?

#13 niggles

Posted 31 January 2013 - 07:14 AM

I think Lucinda is my favourite of names with this sound.

Posted 31 January 2013 - 07:24 AM

WHy make it up when there are plenty of names around that give you the same nn/sound?

I find it hard to pronounce, doesn't flow off the tongue.

Lucinda is very pretty

#16 fifi-trixibelle

Not at all a fan.

Lucia, Lucille, Lucinda, Luciana, Lucilla are all brilliant though.

#17 silverstreak

Posted 31 January 2013 - 07:51 AM

I"m finding it hard to pronounce as well.

#18 matt1972

It's not good

#19 Z-girls rock

Posted 31 January 2013 - 10:54 AM

I like Lucy.

I love Lina. have a friend called Lina - very nice.

Lucilina.... not loving. no

#20 CleverChook

Posted 31 January 2013 - 12:54 PM

I think it's bit much.  I far prefer Luciana (my Italian obsessed DD gets this as a kind of nickname from me: she's Louisa)

#21 kath88

It's reminding me of penicillin.

I prefer the other variations.

#23 blenheim

Posted 31 January 2013 - 08:39 PM

It's a real mouthful - not keen sorry.  I love the vibe you're going for though.

#24 Magnus

Posted 31 January 2013 - 08:44 PM

It's not my style, sorry. I think there are plenty of other frilly and/or Italian names out there that are quite lovely, so maybe you could look for others in a similar style.

#25 MissingInAction

Posted 31 January 2013 - 09:00 PM

Okay... you've officially put me off Lucilina sad.gif  
That's okay though, these threads never end well!!  

BUT.. can you please help me out with other names that end with "lina" as that's the part I really like.  I think it's an adorable nickname and yes, i realise it rhymes with Ballerina.
