Lucius is a name for a boy. The variants for the name are Luke, Lucien and Lucian. The name has a Latin origin meaning "light." Though in present times, it is rarely used as a first name, it continues to be a stronghold in the last name or surname department.

Lucius Antonius was known to be the younger brother and aide of the Roman politician Marcus Antonius in the 1st century BC. Another person by the same first name, Lucius Scipio Asiaticus was the Roman General who led the Roman forces to victory against AntiochusIII, ruler of the Seleucid Empire, in 190BC at the Battle of Magnesia. Lucius is also the name of a Christian teacher at Antioch, mentioned in the New Testament. Apart from the Bible, the word was first mentioned in popular English literature in the later part of the 16th century.
