Need help translating person's name on tattoo

Postby marc0p0l080 » 2017-05-05, 3:54

Hi. Can someone please help me translate this from Arabic to English? I know that part of the word is covered by a bracelet, however any part of the translation would help.

I can read X-w-s-y-l. I would guess "Lucille" except the first character doesn't extend enough vertically.

Thank you so much for the help. Apologies for my lack of knowledge of the language. Reading from right to left, when you say you guess "Lucille", is that starting from the gap between the letters in the middle? Basically, I'm asking if the whole tattoo looks like two words because of the gap or one word.

There's a gap because the letter waw doesn't connect to a following letter.
