Im of french descdent, plus my name is luca trayah, honestly fighting over wether this name is boy or girl is useless, its pretty much a unisex name. Even'thought it is translated to the name Luke. So? I know tons of people with so called boy names Jorden, Ezekiel, Dylan, etc even boys with girl names nicole,Izzy, Jessie etc. I rather focus on how great the name'sounds rather if its meant for a boy or girl. The ring alone tends to keep making everybody want to scream the name. Ive gotten so many comments on it, even more so then my friend who happens to be named "Luke". A very good unquie name for either boy or girl.
My son is 13 and I called him Luca after a handsome Italian I knew many years before. It is definitely a man's name though! in Italy it is a really common name but in the Uk there are only a few. His father is actually Spanish descent, so my Luca is dark, like an Italian. All his mates think It's a cool name and Luca is very pleased that I chose this name for him! :)
Love it. My 5 year old son is a Luca & we get so many compliments on it as its not that common in the UK. He even enjoys the name-related 'teasing' (kids will always find something)... he'says being called Lucozade is funny as he has so much energy!
I dont understand how the person thinks LUCA is an ok name for a girl. It is a boys name clearly a ver'son of Luke or Lucas. It is a strong male name, not a girls name at all.
I am having a girl and will be naming her Luca - there are many theories - Lucia/Luka/Lucca/Boy/girl etc etc - although it may have originally come from a boy it now seems to be a Unisex name as I know of more Luca's to girls in the UK & Australia. It does sound very feminine hence it being popular for a girl in certain parts of Europe - but in Italy it is popular only for a boy......there are many many Unisex names these days - Luca being one of them!!
We named our baby boy Malcolm David. Malcolm is a Scottish name and means "follower of St. Columba" or "follower of the Dove." An excellent choice for Christians of Celtic heritage. It is a distinguished, intelligent- sounding, and very masculine name. You don't hear it much for younger people, but I think that adds to the charm. People assume it is a family name- which evokes solidarity.
I have a 6-month old son named Luca. We are Americans of Italian descent and had our hearts set on Luca for many years. For those that think Luca sounds feminine because it ends with an "a", think about Noah, Ezra, Asa. An "a" doesn't automatically translate into a feminine name. That'said, I think we live in an age when It's OK, maybe even cool, to have a name that works for either gender. We are very happy with out choice and get lots of compliments on his name.
My 11 year old son is Luca and I always knew if I had a boy that would be his name. We are not Italian and live in Canada. My husband is Hispanic and my son has dark eyes and hair. I love this name'so much!
Me and my wife are of Italian decent and have a 4 year old son 1st and middle named Luca James, (meaning "Light")....it is an athletic and masculine name that fits his personality and physical character'stics ( solid, scrappy strong, dark hair, big black eyes and olive skin) to the letter. The name is all BOY.
My daughter wanted something a bit different for her firstborn son and as soon as I'mentioned Luca she loved it. It is perfect for a boy and has been very well received everywhere we go. His father is of Greek origin so it is a bonus to have such a lovely European name.
First of all I don't mean to be rude, but I am Italian and " Luca" is typically a man's name. Unfortunately Americans mostly have the tendency not to understand that. When you start to name your children'the opposite gender name. You confuse everybody. My advice DO NOT DO IT please don't make an idiots mistake!
I love the name Luca for a boy or a girl! It's beautiful....we're expecting our third and considering Luca Mia is It's a girl!
We are considering naming our child Vayda as i've always loved the name. My husband is slightly concerned that the name will be compared to 'Vader' as in Darth Vader and jokes will be made. Has anyone experienced this?
I have always loved the idea of Luca being a girls name. I think nowadays the 'rules' are a lot more relaxed anyway, and definitely in England the 'a' ending makes It'sound very feminine. My name is Kyla which obviously stems from the masculine Kyla, but the 'a' ending changes that-i think the'same thing could be said for Luca.
I think Luca is way better than the English way "Luke". Luca is NOT feminine and it would be strange on a girl. Maybe I'm just saying that cause I'm Italian, I don't know.
its my grandsons name, i had not heard it before in the uk
My son is 14 months old and I fell in love with the name. But we spell is Luka. It is unique and I'm so happy we found that name.
I have a 15 month old son Luca. We love it. We live in the US
First of all I don't mean to be rude, but I am Italian and " Luca" is typically a man's name. Unfortunately Americans mostly have the tendency not to understand that. When you start to name your children'the opposite gender name. You confuse everybody. My advice DO NOT DO IT please don't make an idiots mistake!" Seriously? I am Italian but I don't live in Italy smartess! And last I checked it was on another continent and over 5000 miles away. I think it is beautiful for a girl or boy, but your ignorance is disgusting. On the other'side, how many boys names end in A?
My 4year old son is named Luca. I love love love it!! And everyone always comments on it, very positive. Everyone seems to love it, I live in the U.K and not many people have heard of it. But now there seems to be a few Luca's popping up very near me!! I wonder why?! Not good!! Why can't you find your own name and don't bother trying to copy me!!
Definitely a boys name! Not a girls name! Just because it ends in an "a" doesn't mean a thing. So do the names Joshua, Ezra, etc...
My son's name is Luca and at first my husband's side (they are Canadian and we are Italian) thought it was a girl's name. I'm pretty sure they have grown to like it. It's a great boy's name and it is gaining popularity in Canada.
I cannot beli've that'someone would suggest It's rude to use this name for a girl. The bottom line is that in Hungary It's a girls name and in Italy It's a boys name. Ok so...what's next? A fight to death on which country is better or 'right'? Live and let live. I have female friends name Dylan, Tyler, and Kelsey. They are well adjusted and good people. I had hoped that my 5 year old daughter named Luca would live in a world free of ignorance but unfortunately that's CLEARLY not the case.
I don't understand why Luca has to be a boy's name. I think it would also make a wonderful girl's name.
If you like Luca, for a girl try Lucca after the Italian city. If you are Italian, there is a distinct difference in the way it is pronounced, and it would give a clue that it is not a little boy. In English, no one would hear any difference in pronunciation. Luca is really a boy's name. My Italian husband went nuts when I wanted to use it for a girl. I think similar to how an English speaker would react to someone wanting to name a boy Lucy. Just didn't sound right.
My son is 6 months old and his name is Luca! Luca Matthew we named him. We get so many compliments on his name. I think its unique and cool! We live in USA and we are not italians, but really liked that name for our son!
We had twin boys last month and called them Dean and Jayce. We wanted single syllable names and the name Jayce just seemed to fit really! It's easy to say and sounds pretty cool to me.
My sons name is Luca hes not italian but part honduran. Luca does not sound feminine at all. Its a mans name.
In Europe Luca is now most definatly a unisex name - as many other names are - it does not HAVE to be a boy's name at all - in fact I intent to name my daughter Luca Mar - obv in Itlay it is very common for a boy - but I agree - It's a lot more relaxed now when it comes to unisex names.
I'm italian and naming my daughter who is due in 3 weeks, Luca Isabella. Even'though its considered a boys name, I find it very feminine. I don't really think I would give a boy a name that ends in an "a". Everyone we have told the name to love and agree its very feminine.
I just had a friend name their baby boy Luca and the first thing that came to my mind is "Did he just give his boy a girl's name?"
is 33 wks preg and having a baby boy and we are naming him luca,we love the name its very different!!
People are wrong about LUCA can be a boy's name. I think It's fine for both genders! It's the name of my female corgi dog. She gets compliments for having such a nice cool name. I love my little luca
My son's name is Luca and he is very cute.. His name fits him perfectly. Wherever I go people want to know about his name,, and his brothe's..Maximo. It is a very strong, unique, and fun name.
