Comments for LUCAS:

Most likely origin of the name is out of the bible, of course, after Saint Lucas. However the name Lucas didn't come around until the Christian Era and was most likely a derivative from the name Lucanus, which was common in earlier inscriptions.

Lucas, the night manager for Empire Records in the movie 'Empire Records,' was an amazing character. He was very witty and enigmatic.

One of my favourite names for a boy. It's very strong sounding and not trendy or dated like Jayden, Hunter, etc.

Bizarre thing--I don't think I've ever known or met a Lucas who didn't have red hair; even the kid from the "Ant Bully" movie. Is this just me?

Singer Aled Jones has a son called Lucas Gabriel, "light" and the name of an angel. I think this is a beautiful combination.

Lucas is the oldest form of Luke and was used in eleventh century England well before Luke became commonly used as a first name. It eventually became an English surname for the descendants of a man named Lucas, just as many classic names have become over time.

I love this name. I like it better with a c then a k, I think it looks cooler. I'd like to give this to a future son as a middle name.

Lucas Stickney is the best friend of Kari Sundgren in Susan Runholt's Kari and Lucas series (beginning with "The Mystery of the Third Lucretia"). Both are tremendously likeable characters.

I don't like it. Lucas just seems like Luke with a lisp.

Lucas Cruikshank! He is very famous on youtube and he is also Fred on youtube. Lucas Cruikshank is 14 years old and lives in Nebraska.

I very much like the name Lucas! It doesn't sound too 'foreign' or 'bizarre' like some of the other names I like, but at the same time it's not so popular that it's overused. It's good for a first or middle name, and it has a nice kind of sound to it. Very good.

Also, 'Lucas' is one of the default names for the male character in Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum games.

I get a queasy feeling that it is more a derivative of Lucifer than of Luke. Just don't care for it and not comfortable about even hearing it given to someone.
-- Anonymous User  5/30/2009
I love the French pronunciation. I think it's a very strong and slightly uncommon name that can easily be shortened to Luke. The only problem is in the US, he would always have to correct his teachers on the first day.

I can't believe no one mentioned the fictional character Lucas Davenport from John Sanford's Prey series. The best fictional detective ever.

I once knew a boy name Lucas Lucas. His first name and last name were the same. I thought it was quite funny and cool. This name is nice and I like shortening it to Luke. Also it is a name from the bible. It seems good for a mature and childlike boy.

Lucas Cranach, great German Renaissance painter.

This seems like a cute name on a little kid, but unlike its counterpart Luke, it doesn't age well. I can't imagine a fifty-year-old Lucas, let alone a ninety-year-old.

According to a few sources, the name Lucas was definitely in reference to the Lucani and Lucania, which was Greek in origin. The name either came from a Greek word that meant "wolf," which was a totemic animal used by tribes, or the name came from the Latin word lucus, which meant something along the lines of "sacred wood." The name later became associated with names such as Lucian, which means "light."

I love love love this name.
I would totally give it to a future son in a heartbeat.
Also as other comments have stated, I like Lucas with a 'c' over a 'k'.
I really just can't get over how awesome this name is. :D
-- Cooper060  3/9/2011
Although this name is pretty common, it is my all-time favorite name. EVER. It's stong, masculine enough, and just perfect. I will DEFINITELY name my son this when and if I have one.
-- Justine_Adrian  11/10/2011
I have a friend with this name, but I really don't like it!
It sounds dumb, and is too delicate for a boy...
-- Natasha911  3/23/2012
Ugly and too delicate to be masculine.
-- Marisa500  3/29/2012
Ack! I just hate this name! It sounds childish, tacky, not to mention ugly! Why not go for Luke? It is SO much better than this 'name'!
-- Anonymous User  5/1/2012
I'm sorry but this name makes me laugh.. It is so cutesy and if I ever hear someone shouting the name 'Lucas' to their son I will have to try my best not to laugh.
Don't call your child this, give him something more solid and not laughable :)

This is the name of my friend, and whenever he tells anyone his name the response is always something witty like "Woah" and "What a name"
... personally I wouldn't recommend using this name as it may look good written down, but the sound is just ridiculous!
-- Anonymous User  5/25/2012
A trashy name. I feel sorry for anyone who bears it :/
