When I first started blogging I did this feature called Thursday's Name Game and as I was going through my posts I realized that I had a lot of fun putting the posts together so I thought I'd try it out again.
Essentially I just take whatever book I'm reading, pick a character and research a little about their name. So here it goes...
Name:  Luke
Gender: Male
Character From: The Emerald Talisman
Origin of Luke:
Means 'light' in Greek and in Latin, Lucas, means 'man from Lucania'
Places named Luke:
  • Luke Air Force Base in Arizona, United States.
  • St. Luke's Hospital, various locations, United States. 
Characters named Luke?
  • Luke Skywalker from the Star Wars movies
  • Luke Danes from the TV show Gilmore Girls
  • Luke Castellen from Percy Jackson & The Olympians by Rick Riordan
Have you heard of these guys?
Luke Perry, an actor best known for 90210 and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (movie)
Luke Wilson, an actor best known for Old School, Legally Blonde, and Anchorman

Do you know of anyone named Luke or any famous Lukes I am missing?

  1. Whenever I think of the name Luke I always think of Star Wars. :)

  2. Ah, Luke Danes. It's nice to think about him again. :)

  3. Luke Skywalker, woohoo! :) I don't know any other Lukes.
