Namesmith: Luminian/Luxian

I love Spanish names, French names, Italian, Greek, and of course Wuzyburian- the names I put together as a Namesmith *wink* So, when you find it hard to pick a name for your child, you can always tell me the child’s story and I’ll coin a Wuzyburian name for you ๐Ÿ™‚

A name means virtually whatever you label it to mean. Some names however have only one meaning, some sound like another name, and some names basically inspire you.

The sixth Wuzyburian name I’m presenting here is LUMINIAN [LUXIAN]. Suitable for a Prince (or a Lady) who is born to shine (the social status of some families makes this obvious, I think).

Luminian [Luxian]: Coined from “Lumini”/”Lux” (of Latin origin meaning “Light”) (Lux Mundi: You are the light of the world Matt 5:14/ NON SINE LUMINE – “Not without light”) and “-an” (plainly an English suffix meaning “Relating to, native of). I’d say this means “Originating from the Light”; “born of the Light”; or better still “Light of the world”.. You can help me define it better!

Short form: Mini, Lumi.
Nick form: Mimi; Loomy-Meeny; “Lumidee”- for a musician wannabe.
Happy mood: Loo-Loo; Mimi;
Angry mood: LUMIN!!

Native Name Suggestion (In French):
Short form: Merci; DM
Nick form: Dimer
Happy mood: Merci
Angry mood: MERCI ๐Ÿ˜€
The name means “Thank God”.

Name Suggestions:
* Female name: LENORA: This name is a variant of Eleanor (Greek), Lenore (Greek) and Leonora (Greek); the meaning is “sun ray, shining light; compassion; light”
* Male name: of LUCIAN: This name is of Latin origin, the meaning is “light”
