The Name: Lukai! (updated)

Alright, I guess I've left y'all in suspense long enough.

Here is the name of our next child.  :-)  Enjoy.


Thanks to my Co-Worker who helped pick out the characters.

So the wife wanted Luca, and I wanted Kai.
What better way to solve the problem than to blend the two names...
Lu .... Kai....
Lu .. Kai ..
Lu..Kai..
LuKai
Lukai!
And thusly, Lukai was named.
Now, it just so happens that Lukai is a right proper Chinese name.
The Lu (falling tone) means "road", or when used in a name, may be symbolic of "journey" or something.
The Kai (third tone) means "victorious", or something of good meaning like that (successful, prosperous, etc).

I think its a pretty cool meaning for a name for our new son (which I *still* can not neither confirm nor deny may and or may not be our actual child)... Lukai.  :-)

  8. Hmmm, interesting combination. Good compromise. Not pronounced "lucky" though, right?

    All the best to Lukai and his new family,
    Cathy
