Other Origin(s):French, Latin
Meaning:God is gracious; Bringer of light
Jean Luc is a striking masculine name, perhaps best appreciated by lifelong film aficionados. This unique pairing of Hebrew and Latin origins is best associated with French New Wave pioneer Jean Luc Goddard. A critic, filmmaker, and screenwriter, Jean-Luc was seen as both a radical artist and visionary. How fitting that his name's etymology should embrace two roots, meaning both "God is gracious" and "bringer of light,” respectively. Humble to the medium yet recognizing something greater within it, Jean-Luc lives on as a symbol of authentic artistic expression. This name is ideal for a baby of film buffs, not to mention if you love Jean-Luc Picard, of Star Trek: The Next Generation!
