What do you think of name/nickname “Luc” for a girl?

I am from Australia. In Australia, we truncate names. For this is the way of the Australians.

I had a colleague named Lucien. Anglo Australian, so Lucien was pronounced “loose-ee-yun”. But this is not the way of the Australians. The way of the Australians, including his 15 year girlfriend, was to pronounce it “loose”. Spelled, I daresay, Luce.

Australians would have no problem with a woman named thus. But the spelling would be Luce there too.

Hate typing answers on the phone: no IPA.
