Luca is a male name from Del Paeseno which means "light". Let's find out more about this beautiful name together.



ETYMOLOGY. It is a name of Greek-Latin origin ('lux' - 'lucis' = light [Latin];' lukás- 'lúkios' [Greek, hence' lùcio ']). If Lùcio (whose meaning is also 'light') is a very widespread Roman forename in antiquity and is a close relative of Luke, he also has affinities and crosses with Lucan. Lucano comes from the Latin 'lucus' = wood. St. Luke the Evangelist was the author of the Acts of the Apostles and a doctor in Antioch.

MEANING. Luca literally means "light". But, despite this, sometimes Luca is shady: however, these are temporary shadows and his personality then shows itself for what it really is, that is, active, brilliant, multifaceted. Although a little exclusivist, he knows how to respond to the calls of friendship and solidarity.



NAME-DAY. It is celebrated on October 18 (San Luca Evangelista), but also on February 5 (San Luca di Demenna (or d'Armento), February 27 (San Luca di Messina), March 2 (San Luca Casali da Nicosia), May 30 (San Luca Kirby), December 10 (San Luca di Melicuccà), February 17 (Blessed Luca Belludi), April 18 (Blessed Luca Passi).

1,04% (Istat data) of the Del Paesena male population has this name, which is, especially in recent years, in slight decline (in 1999 it was 2,95%). Luca has about 12000 homonyms, but, with the diminutive variants, he reaches almost 50.000.
