Reply to: Lukillios, a Greek name (apparently). by Dorchadas
Actually were two writers with similar names. There was a Roman satirist named Lucilius and a Greek poet named Loukillios (Greek Λουκίλλιος, Latinized as Lucillius).

For Lucilius see:

For Lucillius see:

I can't find an etymology for the name, but I am wondering if it isn't related to Loukas based on its Greek form. Loukas is from Lucania which ultimately seems to have a debated meaning as highlighted here: http://incomingbasilicata.wordpress.com/2009/02/10/basilicata-or-lucania/

and this page (in Italian):
