Origin of first name:

French, Latin

Meaning of the name:

From Latin lux, lucis, "the light".
This very old name comes from the first centuries of the Christian era when it was often given to children who were born at dawn. The feast of St. Lucia of Syracuse, originally from Sicily, has long celebrated the end of the winter solstice. Fallen into disuse, this name will not be successful until the end of the 19th century. Saint Lucia was a Christian virgin martyred at the beginning of the fourth century. The etymology of his name and the date of his feast, which before the reform of the calendar in 1582 coincided with the winter solstice, made it a sort of holy light. In the Nordic countries, where the winter is long, its feast gives rise to great rejoicings.
Lucie is celebrated on December 13th.
Her derivatives: Lucy, Luce, Lucia, Lucette.
