User comments for Lucan
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.
