bringer of light
What do Hilary Duff and Audrey Hepburn have in common? Both named their sons Luca. While it has been a wildly popular boys' name in Italy, it didn't start getting a following in the US until 2000. It’s the Italian equivalent of Luke and means “bringer of light,” something delighted parents around the globe would agree is true about their precious offspring. It’s not as trendy as Luke or Lucas, which makes it a more original choice if you want a name that won’t be so common at school. It’s also starting to be used for girls—actress Jennie Garth was ahead of the times when she gave the name to her daughter in 1997.
