Shorter form or variant of Lyckele, which originated in late medieval times (as is evident by the archaic -ck- spelling), but is still in use to this day - albeit rarely. The modern spelling of the name is Lykle. A known bearer of this given name was Lyckle Eebles (born circa 1485 and died before 1538), a Frisian ruler and founding father or ancestor of the prominent Frisian family Lycklama à Nijeholt.
