The name Luz, generally pronounced as Looz, is derived from the Spanish and Latin language, and means "Light".

Luz was also the initial name of a royal Canaanite city, which was attached with Bethel. Quiet a few scholars debate on the fact that Luz and Bethel represented one and the same town, the first one being a Canannite name and the latter one being a Hebrew name. Canaan basically was the ancient term for a region approximating to the modern day Israel and the West bank and Gaza.

The Hebrew Bible links Canaan with Lebanon mainly with the coastal city of Sidon, but stretches the "Land of Canaan" southward across Gaza to the "Brook of Egypt". Quiet a few Canaanite spots have been unearthed by archaeologists, the most famous one being the Canaanite settlement of Ugarit.
