Luca

WDYT of [name]Luca[/name]? I used to hate but now I love it!! It seems so chic, stylish and handsome :slight_smile: What would you pair it with? Can you seen [name]Dean[/name] and [name]Luca[/name] being brothers? Also does it come across as feminine to you? I don’t see it at all but apparently [name]Jennie[/name] [name]Garth[/name] named her daughter [name]Luca[/name].

I like it!

I think [name]Dean[/name] and [name]Luca[/name] sound really good together! I agree with you, it is both handsome and stylish. It isn’t in the least bit feminine to my ear, I really don’t understand people calling daughters [name]Luca[/name], to me it’s like calling a daughter [name]William[/name].

I really like it! Can’t say I see it as feminine in the least; it’s too handsome to be a girl’s name.

[name]Love[/name] it. Can’t quite see it with [name]Dean[/name], but they don’t work against each other.
Can’t see it on a girl either.

I love [name]Luca[/name]! I think it sounds great with [name]Dean[/name]. I can see how it might have potential for a girl but it sounds better on boy! Since [name]Hilary[/name] [name]Duff[/name] just named her son this I would say the trend leans more towards boy now anyways :smiley:

I like [name]Luca[/name]! I think it’s a little feminine, and I can see it on a girl, but not en masse. I don’t think it’s great with [name]Dean[/name], but they don’t clash.

[name]Dean[/name] and [name]Luca[/name] go great together! [name]Luca[/name] is not feminine in the least and as to celebrities, they are generally NOT!!! a good example to follow in naming your children.

This exactly!

I am the same as you. Used to hate it now I love it. Would use it for a boy- but my brother’s name is [name]Luke[/name] and my cousin named her baby [name]Lucas[/name] called “luke” and it is too much of the same thing to add to my family!

I love [name]Luca[/name] and always think of it as a very masculine name. I don’t think it works very well with [name]Dean[/name], I think it works with other Italian names such as [name]Rocco[/name] or [name]Enzo[/name] or other names that are well known in Europe: [name]Hugo[/name], [name]Adrian[/name], [name]Sebastian[/name], [name]Felix[/name], etc.

I love [name]Luca[/name] and [name]Dean[/name], both very handsome and strong names.

I don’t find it feminine. I like [name]Luca[/name] quite a bit, but I do think [name]Dean[/name] & [name]Luca[/name] are a bit mismatched.

[name]Love[/name] [name]Love[/name] [name]Love[/name] it!!!

[name]Luca[/name] is my favourite name for a boy and has been for some time. I don’t see how it sounds feminine…but then again I also find overly masculine names (that invoke the image of beer drinking, swearing, spitting, aggressive ‘manly’ men) to be unattractive.

[name]Luca[/name] makes me think of someone sensitive, strong, caring, fun-loving, intelligent; attributes men are so often socialised out of these days in fear of being seen as a sissy (which is ridiculous of course).

There is a list somewhere on here called ‘Softer Sounding Boys Names’, which I can’t find for the life of me now! [name]Luca[/name] is on it, and there are lots of suggestions for similar names!

[name]Luca[/name], pronounced “lu-kah” is a boys name. In some cultures, they have [name]Luca[/name], pronounced like “[name]Lucia[/name]” without the “i”, as a girls name.

I really do love [name]Luca[/name] for a boy though :slight_smile:

I really like [name]Luca[/name] but I know like, 8 guys named [name]Luca[/name].
[name]Dean[/name] & [name]Luca[/name] are strange together, though, for me. All the [name]Lucas[/name] I know are from [name]Italy[/name], and [name]Dean[/name] is definitely not Italian, so the mix seems strange.
[name]Luca[/name] is not feminine at all, unless you’re using the Hungarian or Croatian version and pronouncing it differently than [name]Luca[/name]-the-boy-name.

[name]Love[/name] love love the name [name]Luca[/name]. Not feminine in the slightest. Strong, sophisticated, traditional with a twist. My biggest pet-peeve is people naming their girls with a boy name! [name]Luca[/name] is NOT a girl’s name! Since [name]Luca[/name] is an Italian/Eastern European name, I don’t love the name with [name]Dean[/name]. I see on your list below your post the name [name]Dominic[/name]…[name]Luca[/name] and [name]Dominic[/name] would be a great pair! :slight_smile:
