    Ways to honour a "Luke"

    So, partner wants to honor his brother - unfortunately his first name doesn't translate well into a girls name, so we'd use his middlename which is Luke.

    But can you help me come up with some ideas?

    I'd love some names either starting or ending in Luka/Luca/Lucca

    Lucy, Lucia, Lucille, Lucilla, Lucina, Lucetta, Luciana, Lucilia, Luzia, Lucinda, Lux, Luz, Lucasta.

    All are feminine forms of Lucius, which is where Luke comes from (or mean "light" like Lucius).
