The Lucy fossil was found in Hadar, Ethiopia.
Lucy was not a person (if that's what your thinking), but the first fossil of the early humans (cavemen). The fossil was found in Africa and fossils have a lot to do with science. The reason why they (or the one person who found the fossil) named the fossil Lucy was probably because the fossil was a girl. But out of all the girl names why would they name it Lucy? That's their decision.
Because the Beatles song "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" was playing on the radio when they found the first bit of fossil.
Lucy is an early man fossil. She is part of Australopithecus Afarensis. She was named Lucy, because when she was found, "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" by the Beatles was playing.
