My husband and I are due to have our first baby girl in 2 months and can't decide between the name Lucy or Grace (Gracie for nn). The middle name will be Elizabeth and our surname starts with L. Would love some opinions.Thanks!

I love Grace. It'd DD's middle name. Such a beautiful meaning

I would normally pick Lucy but not sure with an L surname. That said I gave my DS a L name with a L surname. I guess it depends on what the surname is

I prefer Lucy - I think Grace is far too common at the moment.

Thanks heaps for your replies already!! I agree Grace is very common but love the meaning and think its so pretty. I think Lucy is so cute but have always wondered if it's come from name Lucifer. Is that silly? I knowit means light and Lucifer was the angel of light.

Both lovely names, but I'd put Grace with an L surname, though it seems most don't agree with this. I grew up with an alliterative name and disliked it.

I love Lucy but am not convinced about it with a L surname

I pick Grace because it goes better with Elizabeth. Otherwise Lucy.

I'm a huge Lucy fan and in fact Lucy Elizabeth is a name I've been considering for my little girl, due about the same time! Have started to think maybe the two vowel sounds (at the end of Lucy and beginning of Elizabeth) make it a little harder to say, so considering Lucy May too.
In your case, while Lucy is my favourite, maybe Grace is better with an L surname but, like another said, it really depends on the L surname and the overall flow.

I prefer Grace with an L surname. Grace is only common as a MN.
I prefer variations like Luciana and Lucia to Lucy.

..op, have you by any chance been reading a book called " a light between oceans"?
( i actually thought it was a good read, but i digress. just in case you havent, the little girl in the story is first known as lucy, then as grace, then lucy-grace!) hmm.
i love lucy ( ha!) but i do,and i think it goes fine with elizabeth. ( the one in the story was lucy violet, just so you know!)
the only thing i was thinking of is with Lucy Lastname you will have the double letter thing... but that doesnt have to be a problem.

No I haven't read it. That's so funny! Yeah the 2 Ls is my issue. I was SS growing up and it didn't really worry me. Still love Grace though.Thanks for your help everyone!

Grace has been done to death. Elizabeth is beautiful and would be my choice as a first name, not middle.

Has anyone got other suggestions to Lucy or Grace? Middle name Elizabeth and last name starts with L and is quite long.
