My name is Luz, it is easy to remember, basically nice, and not so common in Spain like other names, but I had a hard time with it for two reasons:
After all is the name of an every day thing, and kids made jokes of the like: "You look a little switched off", (when sick), and silly thinks like that. You develop a personality to get over all this nonsense.
And it is hard to pronounce in English, (I lived 1 year in Ireland), They said Lus and that reminded me of the verb to lose, not very positive.
I ended up re-calling myself as "Lucy".

It's also used in Portugal usually as Maria da Luz.

This is just bland, and it's unfortunately the last name of Madonna's boyfriend, whom I find irritating.

"Luz" is not only of Spanish origin but also of Portuguese. The meaning however is the same: "Light". The pronunciation is slightly different though: "Loush". Family names can be found as: "da Luz", meaning: "from the Light".

In South America it is pronounced Loos. (South American Spanish speakers pronounce z and s in the same way)
I hear it mainly used as a middle name. Maria Luz is one of the most popular combinations for this name. I think Luz was more popular in the 80s and 90s, but it is a classic name and it's still used, although it is not one of the most popular names..
