Last name origins & meanings:

  1. English (Gloucestershire and South Wales): most probably from the Norman personal name Luce (a vernacular form of Latin Lucia or Lucius). This is generally a female name, although male bearers are found in France. It was borne by a young Sicilian maiden and an aged Roman widow, both of whom were martyred under Diocletian and are venerated as saints.
  2. English (Gloucestershire and South Wales): Alternatively, the surname may be a variant of Lewis.
  3. English (Gloucestershire and South Wales): American bearers of this surname are descended from Henry Luce (1640–c.1688), who came to Scituate, MA, from south Wales in or before 1666, and moved to Martha’s Vineyard, MA, in about 1670. He had many prominent descendants.
