Consisting of three unvoiced consonants, the light L and S with a hard, decisive C in the middle, Lucas commands attention when it's uttered. Its romantic origins have carried it across Europe, the Mediterranean and several Spanish-speaking countries. High School Musical’s Lucas Grabeel and YouTube personality Lucas Cruikshank are both memorable. Plus, there are enough players named Lucas in international soccer to form their own league!
