"I'm a Lucy, and I like it because although everyone has heard of the name, its not very common.
and people always say 'thats a nice name'
It fits a little girl because its 'sweet', but its also grown up enough for a woman.

And I have a slight speech impediment which makes me hiss my s's, which doesnt help much!" Apr. 17, 2009:

"In the Night Flight spoof version of the 1983 Japanese TV show Kagaku Sentai Dynaman (and this is BEFORE Power Rangers was made), the character of the evil Princess Chimera, the show's "Dark Chick" (as opposed to DynaPink who was the "Light Chick"), was renamed Lucy. In one of the spoof episodes, the monster Frog Shinka, now called "Lucky Pierre" ("Lucky" needn't be confused with "Lucy", however), kidnapped about six or seven Japanese brides as part of Chimera's/Lucy's plan for revenge for being teased in her "schooldays" or whatever over her tail looking like "a muffin" (the empire Chimera/Lucy was part of was known for having several tails). Yet DynaPink (Rei Tachibana in the original Japanese language version but Slojin in the spoof) managed to rescue those captured brides after posing as a bride herself and before she and the other Dynamen eventually finished off the monster they were facing."
