Lucy sparkles with bright, colorful whimsy, owing its shine to the Latin word for light. The long-E ending makes it particularly catchy and easy for children to pronounce. The spunky, silly title character from the long-running sitcom "I Love Lucy" and Lucy Pevensie, the pure-hearted heroine from three books in "The Chronicles of Narnia," are two namesakes who add to this baby name's popularity. Lucy was also the name given to a primate skeleton that lends credence to the theory of evolution, which itself was named after the Beatles classic “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.”
