Lucas....what does it make you think of? I have an Oliver already and need to find a name for my next ds. I think I prefer Lucas to Luke...what does everyone thinksmile

Wow didn't realise I had lots more replies. Thank you all. After much discussion we have decided to go with.....James smile

I like lucas. Also like lucca. Not so keen on luke.

Would have problems having a james if I had an oliver already - too close to Jamie Oliver! And whilst I like his cookery shows, not sure I am ready to inadvertently honour him by effectively using his names for both my dc... grin

Lucas James.
Sounds lovely. Best of all worlds, get all the names you like, as can revert to Luke if you still hanker after it.

Don't worry about those who don't like Lucas. The names they've chosen themselves will be disliked by others too.

There are two Lucas's in DS's preschool, both with the same surname initial. Argh.

I have a Lucas so obviously I love it. However out of my children he is the only one I would rename if I had the chance. Every time we go out there is always another Lucas. He is Lucas R at school because there is another in his class. I chose it when we lived out of the UK so did not realise how popular it is here. smile

It reminds me of mucus and lupus, though I am definitely in the minority!

Lucas it's a cool name, I have a 15 year old one.

Acrackinthefabricoftime Sun 19-May-13 17:08:41

I love Lucas. That gives maximum flexibility as he can still be called Luke.

bananaramma Sun 19-May-13 15:30:06

Since someone mentioned that Lucas rhymes with Mucous, that's all I think of now blush. And Luke, I really don't like the sound of, sorry.

TobyLerone Sun 19-May-13 11:51:20

I love James, though.

deemented Sun 19-May-13 11:27:10

Lucan i like, but not Lucas.

OrlaKiely Sun 19-May-13 11:23:08

Sorry to be so horrible!!! You can still have James though grin

OrlaKiely Sun 19-May-13 11:22:43

and what Tobes said. Sadly.

FortyFacedFuckers Sun 19-May-13 11:22:16

Sorry I didn't read the OP properly I love Lucas but I don't like Luke.

OrlaKiely Sun 19-May-13 11:22:05

I am really sorry, but it reminds me of worms.

FortyFacedFuckers Sun 19-May-13 11:20:55

I love it it was on my list but I decided it was too popular for me.

Yonididnaedaethat Sun 19-May-13 11:16:36

I'm trying to persuade DH on using the name Luke or Lucasmile if its a boy I'm having but he's not keen on either.

ReluctantlyBeingYoniMassaged Sun 19-May-13 11:05:19

It was high on our list. I like it.

TobyLerone Sun 19-May-13 10:54:13

Rhymes with mucus. I hate Luke, too.

When I was at school, Luke was always the snotty kid who puked in assembly.

apprenticemum Sun 19-May-13 10:14:25

Allways consider what his school friends will do to it....adding aid could be wearing. Luca is lovely too

sashh Sun 19-May-13 10:10:42

Lucas North as in spooks - go for it.

MortifiedAdams Sat 18-May-13 22:04:42

I know a ten year old Lucas who is a wonderful lad. Therefore I love the name grin

puds11isNAUGHTYnotNAICE Sat 18-May-13 22:04:08

I prefer Luca. I know its not an option, but i like it.

Of luke and Lucas though, it would be Luke I think, but maybe spelled Luc.
