NAME ROOT:
*LOUKS > LūX > LūCIS > LUCERE (LūCĕO) > LūCĭUS
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
LEUKóS (λευκός)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Latin “lūx > lūcis > lucere (lūcĕo) > lūcĭus”, meaning “light, shine, clear, bright, shining, full of light”, which in turn derives from the Proto-Italic “*louks”, meaning “white, light, bright”, compared to the Ancient Greek “leukós (λευκός)”. Throughout Roman history, Lucius was the most common praenomen, used slightly more than Gaius and somewhat more than Marcus. The name survived the collapse of the Western Empire in the 5th century and has continued into modern times. Saint Lucian of Antioch known as Lucian the martyr, was a Christian presbyter, theologian, and martyr. He was noted for both his scholarship and ascetic piety. 1) Lucius Licinius Lucullus (118–57/56 BC) was an optimate politician of the late Roman Republic, closely connected with Lucius Cornelius Sulla. 2) Lucia Visconti (1372–1424) was the daughter of Bernabò Visconti, Lord of Milan, and Beatrice Regina della Scala. She was one of seventeen legitimate children. 3) Lúcia de Jesus dos Santos (1907 2005), also known as Lúcia of Fátima and by her religious name Sister Maria Lúcia of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart, was a Portuguese Catholic Carmelite nun and one of the three children to witness the 1917 Marian apparitions in Fátima.
