The name Lucifer is a boy's name of Latin origin meaning "light-bearer". Lucifer and is often added to lists like Gothic Baby Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Love, Like, Lose -- Outlandish/Guilty Pleasures edition!".
From the experts:
Lucifer is the name of the archangel cast into hell -- theologians disagree on whether he and Satan are separate beings -- and as such has long been on the forbidden list for religious parents. Still banned in New Zealand, Lucifer is occasionally used in the contemporary U.S.: Six boys were given the name in the most recent year counted.
