Personal experiences with the name Lucian: | Edit

We named our son Lucian. The reaction to his name is usually favorable especially when they meet him.

My son is also named Lucian. The name means "light" and is a perfect fit for his cheerful and bright demeanor. When we first decided on his name, people were very negative saying it sounds too much like "Lucifer" or that it would be mispronounced as "lucy-ann". But, once people meet Lucian (pronounced Loo-shin), he melts their hearts!
