luke

FORM OF:
lukas
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > hellenic > greek
ORIGIN:
greek 
NAME ROOT:
*LEUK > LEUKóS > LOUKâS
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
LEUKóS (Λευκός) LOUKâS ‎(Λουκᾶς)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek name “Loukâs ‎(Λουκᾶς)”, which in turn derives from the Ancient Greek leukós (Λευκός), meaning “bright, shining, gleaming, light in color, white, pale-skinned, weakly”. Finally the name derives from the proto-Indo-European root “*leuk-“, which means “light, brightness”. Another theory is from the Latin “Lucas”, an abbreviation of “Lucanus”, from the Ancient Greek “Loukanós (Λουκανός)”, man from Lucania. Luke the Evangelist is one of the four evangelists or authors of canonical Gospels of Jesus Christ. He was a native of the Hellenistic city of Antioch in Syria. The early church fathers ascribed to him authorship of both the Gospel according to Luke and the book of Acts of the Apostles, which originally formed a single literary work.
