Hi! It is me, Lucy...
When my mom first saw me on the Facebook page of the Humane Society that rescued me, my name was Mia.
little shell shocked about actually adopting me...
As my parents drove home from my foster home, my mom kept throwing out names. My dad kept saying yes to pretty much all of them. But my mom like Ellie and Lucy the best. After enough pestering, daddy said he liked Lucy better.
My mom thinks everyone needs a formal name. So she wanted to call me Lucinda Alexis (alexis after my brother Alex). She kept asking daddy about it and he kept "yeah, yeahing her". He still was shell shocked about actually getting me.
Finally the day came for them to bring me home. The next morning I woke up and I heard my dad ask my mom if she called me Lucinda or Luceilia. She was a little annoyed that he didn't pay her any mind for the weeks prior when she kept asking him about the name Lucinda, but she didn't say a word. She clarified it was Lucinda. He told her that he liked Luceilia better.
She simply said, "Okay, Luceilia Alexis it is!" and that is how I got my name... Although, you can still just call me Lucy!
