Etymology of the name LUGA.
Meaning of the baby name LUGA.

  

LUGA.  Gaelic name, probably meaning "alluring, magnetic," from Celtic lug ( Ger. loken, allure, O.N. lokka).  Also see Lug.

    Neighbours to the Cornavii southwards were the Lūgi, occupying eastern Sutherland.  Around Loch Shin were the Smertæ, and Easter Ross was occupied, up to the Varar Estuary, by the Decantæ.  The root lūg of the name Lugi appears in many Celtic names, both on the Continent and in Ireland.  Indeed, there was a Lūgi tribe in Mid-Germany contemporary with the Highland Lugi.  The god of light and arts among the Gael was called Luga of the Long Arms; and the old name of Lyons was Lūgdunum, explained by an old glossary as "desiderato monte"—the desirable town.  Dr. Stokes refers the root lug to a Celtic base corresponding to Ger. loken, allure, Norse lokka.  In that case the Norse god Loki is Aryan cousin, probably, to Luga, though the former is the god of evil enticement, while the Celtic Lug is alluring by good... (Transactions of the Gaelic Society of Inverness, v.18 [1891-92], 1894).
