The name Luke means 'bringer of light'.

The origin of the name comes from Latin. The Latin name was 'Lucas'. The meaning is a biblical one and the name Lucas was that of a Roman. Lucas was a physician in Rome and became an early convert to Christianity. Christianity spread to the centre of the Roman Empire, eventually becoming the official religion of the Empire.

Luke was a writer of one of the four gospels in the Bible. The meaning of his name can be seen clearly through this as light was brought to people through the teachings in the book he wrote. Luke can also refer to the region Lucanus in the south of Italy.

It also comes from, in both Latin and Greek, the name Lucania. This was not the name of someone, rather a place name. The correlation with the name Luke was that in this situation it meant, 'man from Lucania'. It could also possibly come from the Greek word, Lukos, which means 'wolf'. This gives quite a different meaning to the name. It is not always a first name, but can often be found as a surname as well.

Luke is a very popular name, in England it has been very high when a census has been taken. For more than 10 years it has been in the top 40 names and for a large portion of this time it has been in the top 20. The statistics are similar in the USA where it is also very popular.

It's not pronounced like the word 'look', just to be clear. It rhymes with puke, or fluke.

Luke is the name for a boy. The name has a Greek origin, meaning "from Lucanus" or "luminous" In Bible, Luke refers to the friend of Saint Paul, and the author of the third Gospel of the New Testament and the Acts of the Apostles. Though he claimed that he did not witness the ministry of Jesus, his gospel contains details about Jesus and his early life.
