Luke

Luke is a perennial boys name favorite, and it’s not hard to see why. It simultaneously sounds steadfast and cool. Biblical in origin, Luke was the author of the third book in the New Testament, the book of Acts and a friend of Saint Paul. Still need to convince Dad? It’s also the name of a ton of professional athletes, Luke Skywalker and Cool Hand Luke—if that doesn’t work, we don’t know what will.
