Before Lucy married Ricky Ricardo on the television show “I Love Lucy,” what was her maiden name?
Lucy and Ricky Ricardo are characters from the television sitcom I Love Lucy, portrayed by Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Much like Lucille Ball herself, her character Lucille McGillicuddy was born and raised in Jamestown, New York (per episode #138), to an American family of Scottish descent. The marriage between Scottish American Lucy and Latino Ricky marked the first appearance of a mixed marriage on an American TV show. I Love Lucy debuted in 1951, sixteen years before Loving v. Virginia legalized all forms of interracial marriage in all 50 states.
The correct answer is McGillicuddy.
