My friend is due to give birth to DS1 soon and is undecided on Luke or Lucas. My instinct is that Luke will date better, more timeless and Lucas more trendy. Opinions please??

Luke. Unless your friend's surname is Sharp.

How about Luca?

I think Luca is a Husky/Malamute name. Not my cup of tea.

Luke's on our list. I like it - Lucas seems more faddy to me.

I love them both. Don't think Lucas will date, it's quite classic isn't it?

I prefer luca to Luke/Lucas

Luke is less common, as in I know a lot of Lucas es but few Lukes, although sometimes Lucas is pronounced Luca.

Luke, definitely. Classic.
