I really like the name Luca or Luke whatever you want to call it. My friend Luca has that name and he likes it so.

My baby boy's called Luca and I love his name so much, it suits his Italian features, he is so beautiful. Only the most beautiful boys should be called Luca. Long live the name LUCA and my son too.

A very nice, handsome name.

It is also the German word for Light.
-- Kasi  3/12/2007
Luca is NOT the German word for light! "Licht", is the German word for light and there is no such word as Luca in the German language.

I really like this name, if I had a son, I'd call him this, but the guy from the godfather puts me off.
-- HeadCharge72  6/5/2010
Ugh, I hate this name! It sounds so posh and effeminate. It makes me think of a spoiled European child.
-- bananarama  4/28/2011
I will be honest and say that I enjoy this name-- "Luca." Though, an image of a Doberman Pinscher does not cease to appear in my head, hah. But I think that the use should be limited... the sound alone has the power to look incredibly spoiled, I suppose. In moderation, and used only on those of the original, intended decent/ethnicity of this name should bear it.

Overall: my approval is given.

The Italian pronunciation is LOO-kah. [noted -ed]

It's a nice name. It's very cute. I'm not sure how well it will age though, but it has quite a lot of history so I think it should be ok. But please, if you're going to use this name- 1. Have an Italian last name to go with it (ie. Be Italian. Luca Johnson sounds very tacky and trendy) and 2. Use it for a boy! I don't know why it's used for girls.

Luca sounds like a really nice Italian man's name; I don't find it remotely feminine.
-- IEnjoyTonsOGoodNames  6/7/2015
If you were to ask me, Luca looks too incomplete.

I much prefer Luke\Lucas\Lukas.

It's when I find names like this I wish I were Italian. It's such a nice name! Irish names are WAY to difficult to pronounce in the US. Hopefully I'll find something :P
-- actingfun  9/17/2015
I think this is a beautiful name and it is mine! There are about 3, 4 people that I know called Luca. It is more popular and it is soaring through England.
-- helloadele  11/30/2015
If you're not Italian or European I'd use Lucas/Luke. This name is nice but beware- I just met a girl with this name ;(
-- LV51sfan91  9/25/2016
Sounds like a girl's name to me.

Luca Antonini is an Italian former professional footballer who last played for Italian club Prato. He was a full-back who is equally proficient on either flank. Antonini started his career at Milan, originally as a winger, playing for 11 years in their youth teams. At the start of the 2001–02 season, he was loaned out to Serie C2 side Prato, where he made his professional debut, totalling 26 appearances and scoring 3 goals. The following year, he made 17 appearances and scored one goal in his first Serie B season, during a loan spell at Ancona. The team got promoted to Serie A and Antonini's contribution was significant, as he became a regular in the second half of the season.
