Meaning:from Lucania; light; sacred wood grove; to shine; stand out
Luc is a Latin masculine name traditionally denoting one who hails "from Lucania"—a historical region in Southern Italy. Long connected to the Lucanian tribe, Luc finds a superior translation in their ancient Oscan language, where it means "light." Invigorating this divine interpretation further, many suggest Lucania stems from the Latin lucendo, a "sacred wood grove" often associated with letting light in. Time and time again, Luc's ties to enlightenment and radiance are reaffirmed, its most compelling interpretation rooted in the Latin lūcēre, meaning "to shine" or "stand out."
