Okay, so I've been all about both Luke and Lucas recently. I just think both names are really handsome. Luke reminds me of a very attractive guy I know but don't really like as a person, so I'm iffy about it but like the name enough to get past the association. As for Lucas, I feel like it would be weird to call him Luke just because of how Lucas is spelled, and I don't really like Lukas, but I do like just Lucas without a nickname too. 

 

What do you guys think? Also, what middle names do you like with it?

(As with my other posts, you don't have to list too many middles, since I'm not sure if I want to convert my list from singles to combos yet.)

 

Thanks in advance!

I love Luke, but unfortunately know a terrible one, so I can't use it. Or I definitely would! I really am not a fan of Lucas, but I don't hate it.

 

Carter Luke would be handsome.

If you plan on naming him Lucas/Lukas but constantly calling him Luke, just name him Luke. You could do Luka/Luca and then call him Luke?

Bailey: I think Luka/Luca is nice but too Italian sounding compared to the other names I like (though I am partially Italian). I probably would name him Luke if I planned on calling him Luke, but I do like how Lucas sounds and if I named him that I would just call him Lucas. Either way, I think I like just Luke better. 

 

Addison: Thanks for your suggestions! I really like Luke Abraham, but I know both names are in the Bible and I'm not really religious, so that might be weird? I don't know. I do like Luke Oliver and Luke Amias, but something feels a bit off, maybe because both middles start with a vowel. Carter Luke is super handsome but I love Luke in the first name spot. Luke Warren is really great too, as is Luke Robin, though I feel like Luke Robin needs a little more umph because both names have a very short feel. Luke Abraham and Luke Oliver are my favorites though.

I don't care for the name in general, I knew a Luke I disliked. I think Lucas nn Luc would be nice though. Either way is a nice name.
