    I like Luther! Do you have Martin Luther in mind? I think Luke as a middle name for one child and Luther as a first name for another child is fine. Luther Amos is my favorite of your combos.

    I just love the name Luther. It's handsome and dignified, and familiar but not common. Plus, it fits it perfectly with all the other popular -er boy names.

    I find it a viscerally creepy name.

    I am really very fond of Amos and Micah, and Luke is handsome, but Luther is just plain ominous to me.

    My 10 month old son's name is Luther Wolf. We loved the name because:
    1. Uncommon but well known
    2. Easy to spell and pronounce
    3. My hubby has German heritage
    4. Like the meaning of the name
    5. Has a lot of good associations
    6. Sounds badass and masculine, lol

    I love the name, and I think using Luther as a first name for one child while using Luke as a middle name for another is fine.

    @stripedsocks - just curious why you think it is creepy and ominous? I feel a little insulted.
