help with a name

Postby aliciam.1 » 24 Apr 2012, 18:44

Is the name Lucia interchangeable with the name Maria? I have a parish document that shows Lucia Dal Castello born in Cogollo de Cengio, Vicenza, Italy around 14 Mar, 1841 and my great grandmother Maria was born then. I was wondering if it could be the same person.

Any help would be appreciated.
