Wow, seeing other comments is very different from my thoughts... I think Lucas is a classic strong name. I feel like it’s a name that you can shorten to Luke or keep as Lucas and it doesn’t matter how old you are.

I think the name Lucas sounds boring and it doesn't sound fitting on boys plus I think the name Lucas is another form of the name Lance for boys! I HATE that name Lucas because boys with that name Lucas are babyish and immature- who wants to have a son with that babyish and immature name!

I like the name Lucas perhaps more than the name Luke. I've known a few men named Lucas in my lifetime and without exception they all chose to be called Luke. So why bother with the name Lucus... just name HIM Luke.

It's an ugly name, and reminds me of the disease lupus. And of course it rhymes with mucus. Two unpleasant things that sound a lot like a name do not make it very appealing. I have no idea why anyone would choose this name over the similar, but much better name Luke. I'm not even really very fond of Luke, but it is still superior to Lucas as a name.

Meaning "light", "bright" or "bringer of light", often associated with the bible name "Luke".
From the Latin name "Lucas", which means man from Luciania. Luciania is a place in southern Italy with the ancient meaning of "shining".

Wow, a 54%? I'm surprised by that rating, seeing as how popular the name is in several countries and it's not even a modern name. I personally don't really care for the name, seeing as it does indeed rhyme with the word, "mucus" and it's extremely popular, however, there are worse names and I certainly wouldn't consider this a bad one.

This does not age well at all and is too "cutesy." Just name your kid Luke. I have a relative named Lucas and they call him Luke. Why the K spelling when it's Lucas? Luc, this spelling looks like luck. Not a fan.

I love this name. I named my son LUCCAS, yes with 2 C's at the time I thought it would be cute to match with my daughter who is Rebecca but now I would have put only one C- not because I don't like it, but because it's always misspelled and I can never find souvenirs with his name spelled right! He is 6 and he doesn't mind- I'm hoping he won't! I just love the name. It makes me think of a courageous, sweet and strong man and that's exactly what he is! So sweet, kind and very strong!

Having this name myself, I quiet like it personally, reading some of the comments saying that's it's too delicate for a boy or "trashy" (though where I'm from we don't use that term so I guess it means chavy), I don't feel that it is so. A lot of people like my name, and I use my full name rather than Luke, as it's less common. I don't see the issue of having a boys name as "delicate" though I don't see how it is. (but that's just my opinion )

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 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 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.

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.

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.
