Latin form of Loukas, which means “from Lucania,” a region of Southern Italy. But no matter what it means, between the associations with George Lucas and Luke Skywalker (creator and main character of the Star Wars saga, respectively), this kid’s gonna need a supply of Star Wars t-shirts from a very early age. You could also spell it with a K (Lukas) to ensure he’ll probably never find his name on a keychain.
Luc, Luke, Luca, Lucky.
Famous people named Lucas:
Actors Lucas Till, Lucas Black, Lucas Grabeel, and Lucas Hedges; Brazilian footballer Lucas Leiva.
The name Lucas has been in use since the 11th or 12th century, which means that unlike chamber pots and tunics as menswear, some things never go out of style.
