Sir Lucan was one of the Knights of the Round Table. In the different accounts of King Arthur, Sir Lucan is always depicted as loyal and the last to leave the battlefield.

Personally, I really like this name. I came across it, while looking for a name that was a bit more original than Lucas or Luca. These names are beautiful, but a bit overused in my opinion. And that's where Lucan comes in.
This name is especially great to use, if you've studied Latin or are interested in history. It's a strong, solid name, which makes me think of a smart, noble and heroic boy.

Lucan is also the anglicised name of a town near Dublin in Ireland. Its name in Irish is Leamhcán, meaning "place of the elms."

A famous bearer is Lucky Lucan, formally known as Richard John Bingham, 7th Earl of Lucan (born 18 December 1934). He disappeared on on 8 November 1974 after he allegedly murdered his children's nanny Sandra Rivett and attacked his wife. A lot of people believe he did it, but Lucan still hasn't been found and there are many theories around his disappearance. Lucan is now presumed dead.,_7th_Earl_of_Lucan

Lucan (now Lucan Biddulph) is a town in Middlesex County, Ontario. The Donnelly Massacre took place in Lucan in the 1880s. It is predominately a farming town.

Given that Lucas and Luke are derived from a Greek name meaning "from Lucania," I see no reason why the Roman cognomen Lucanus (from which Lucan is derived) cannot mean the same thing.

After doing adjacent research, it appears that LUCAN < LUCANUS can mean "man from the glade."

LUC- < |lucus| glade, clearing, > grove +
-AN < |-anus| associated man

It is more likely that LUCANIA is a derivative of LUCANUS rather than its root.

I heard this name while watching 'King Arthur', There was a little boy with this name and I just thought that it was so lovely! I adore the name Lucas, but it's a bit to overused, But Lucan is perfect, Its strong and unique! Better than Lucas.
