So, I have been watching this new show in the CW called Life Unexpected (great show by the way - you should check it out). The daughter's name is Lux and I am really loving this name. The meaning of the name is Light and it is of Greek origin.

So, what do ya think? Like/Dislike?

Do you prefer the spelling Lux or Luxe?

Any combos you can think of? Prefer as first or middle name?

Thanks bunches!

I'm on the fence. I used it for a character name along time ago, but barely can remember the story.

I think of Kristen Dunst from the Virgin's Suicide when I hear the name.

But Lux Alexandra or Alexandra Lux popped into my head when I thought of a combo. I prefer the spelling without an -e

Or Juliet Lux/Lux Juliet, Brooklyn Lux/Lux Brooklyn, Lux Saoirse/Saoirse Lux, or Lux Camille/Camilla Lux.

I think its really pretty, and really uncommon. I like it LUX rather than Luxe.

I immediately thought of The Virgin Suicides too. It is not my style, feels incomplete to me. I think it is best as a nickname though I don't know what it could be short for... I suppose it would make for an okay mn with a longer first name.

I was thinking of Lux vs. Luxe the other day too! lol :)

Though I think it's better as a nickname (either to a real name or something else), I like Lux better.

It's very cute and different. I love it! :)

I'm soooo in love with this name & the show! It's like kinda like my life! Well being in foster care and what not! It's my new fave show! I like it Lux even tho Luxe with an "e" is cute too. I also like Luz means "light" as well but Lux is spunky n cute esp with the "x". I was thinking you could even use Lux as a nickname for Lucy/Lucie/Lucille etc names that mean light also?!? but it could be just me a big nickname fan! I deff liked the name from the virgin suicides too.

loo-x :) I'm terrible at writing pronunciations LOL anyways the sound should be just like the "Lu" in Lucy.. just add an X instead of the "cy" part.

I don't think I'd have the heart to call a child that. But it would be a cute nickname for Lucy or Lucille-- they have the same root anyway.

Luce also means light (prn. LOO-chay). It is part of my last name, and sometimes my friends call me Lux or delux ;)

It's actually like saying "lucks"

It's an abbreviation of the word Luxurious, like saying "We're living the luxe life"

Hope that makes sense/helps.

You're right, I was pronouncing it the Italian way.

But still, the word Lux -originally- is Latin and means light.. and it's pronounced loox :)
