Sometimes narrowing down the list of options for baby names can be quite challenging. In fact, some babies are born without having a name waiting for them. But, if you’re not one of those ”leave it to the last minute” types, your boy will be called Luke the minute he’s born. The next challenge is finding the perfect middle name for Luke.

While his grandma is creating monogrammed baby towels and bibs with his name, Luke, she really would like to add his middle name too!

As a master of research (see my bio below), I waded through tons of data from baby name databases, discussion forums for parents, articles by notable magazines to actually discussing it with other parents what they think. Of course, also my opinion has been considered. To help you with some ideas, I’ve compiled a list with a few popular options.

Meaning of the Name Luke

The name Luke is an English derivative of the Latin name Lucas. It was originally derived from the Latin name Lucius and in its shortened form means “the one born at dawn” or “the bright one”. Over time, Luke has come to simply mean “light’. So, your little Luke will definitely be the “light’ of your life!
