"My son will be 4 this year, and Lucian was the only name that his father and I could agree on. His nickname is Lucky - (it stuck after he got run over by a truck last year, and came out of it with minor injuries.) Sometimes we refer to him as Lucifer - because he is a 3 year old, adventurous and unfearing little boy, but we believe that we chose well. We have yet to meet another child with his name, although we have met a few adults that we're happy to see that the name was still "around"." Jul. 19, 2017:

It is of Latin origin, and the meaning of Lucian is "light". Variant of Lucius. Luciano is an Italian and Spanish form. Saint Lucian of Antioch (fourth century) was a noted scholar. Artist Lucian Freud; opera celebrity Luciano Pavarotti.

"My name is Lucian and the experience changes throughout life. When young it was bad, I got called "Lotion". However, now in the mature world of adult-hood people remember me because of my name. People do commonly mispronounce it by saying "Lucy-inn" but people usually say it's a quite masculine name. It's a great conversation piece when meeting new people (girls are particularly interested in my name and its meaning/origins) so I make sure I am well versed and knowledgeable in my name, noting any important/famous people. eg Did you know a person from St.Lucia is known as a "Lucian"? It's a very colorful word with very rich history and I highly recommend for any parent that wants their children to be successful and well remembered." Dec. 9, 2010:
"My husband and I named our son Lucian we think it is a very handsome name with old world class. We don't meet many people with the name however the ones we do meet usually have the alternate spelling of Lucien." Feb. 5, 2007:
