Lucy is the English form of the Latin name Lucia, which comes from the word lux, meaning "light." It has been used in England since the 12th century. Masculine forms are Lucian and Lucius, though they have never been as popular as Lucy is for girls, probably die to the fact that St. Lucia was a prominent saint to early Christians, and is the patroness of the blind.
