LUKE Family History

This notable surname derives from the given name "Lucas", a Latin form of the Greek "Loucas" meaning man from Lucania. Lucania was a region of Southern Italy that was perhaps originally named in an Italic dialect with a word meaning bright, shining. The Latin form of the name, Lucas, was a great favourite as a personal name in the Middle Ages, due in part to the popularity of St. Luke the Evangelist. St. Luke was a doctor and a painter, and there is an ancient suggestion that the name means "a patient person". Lucas is held to be the learned form of Luke, and is found in France in the same spelling, from where it may be locational from Luick in Flanders, for example Lucas de Luke appears in the Pipe Rolls of London (1274)...
