I actually really like this name. My mom always wanted to name one of my brothers Lucas but never got to. So i'm thinking that if i have a son, i'll name him Lucas William. (Lucas so i can pass on my moms favorite name, and William after my father)

I had my son March 19, 2020 and I was very unsure of what I was going to name him. I decided to go with Lucas about a month before he was born and I am so glad I did, its classic and not very common and It'suits him very well. I also like the fact that he will have the nickname Luke.

My name is Lucas, ends up often shortened to Luke. Since Star Wars came out, hundreds of people have claimed to be my father. "Luke, I am your father." That Isn't even'the line people. I thought my name was kind of dorky growing up. But I like it fine now. The name used to be unknown, but there are a lot more now. Especially among white folk. Oh, rhymes with mucus. Ends in ass. But kids can find something wrong with any name, if they don't like you.

I go to a large high school where everyone shares their name with several other people, but I only know of 1 other guy with my name. Not very popular when I was born. The only Lucas's I'meet are babies, so I think it is becoming more popular for 2012--on.
