I believe the LGPL is the *Library* GPL.

Yes, that was its intent.  The LGPL was created to allow GPL libraries
to be used in writing commercial software, something which the GPL
would not allow.

The Artistic License that comes with Perl is one.  The BSD license
is another.  I'm sure there are others.  Of course, anyone can create
their own license that says whatever they want, but many of these
pre-existing licences have been either created or reviewed by lawyers.
