Posted by & filed under Entertainment.

Parents choose names for many different reasons. Sometimes a name carries a family tradition,

or children are named after a beloved relative. Other times, parents choose a name because it

represents something. A name is like a wish. When a parent picks a name for its meaning, that

parent is saying that they hope their child will carry a certain quality that will help them in life.

What better quality than natural luck, something to help out in every situation?

10. Faustina

It might mean “lucky,” but this name has a dark history. The masculine version, Faust, is the

name of the protagonist of a German play who felt his life was too dull and sold his soul to the

devil for knowledge and pleasure. The name, Faustina, has seen more success as the name of two

different saints and the wife of an emperor.

9. Edmund

Meaning “fortunate protector,” this is another boy’s name. The name has been in stories

throughout time from Shakespeare to Charles Dickens. Though not always as lucky as their

names, these characters have brightened the imaginations of children throughout the centuries.

8. Evangeline

A girl’s name, Evangeline means “bearer of good news.” The name has the same root as the less

popular word, Evangelism, and is related to the even less popular name, Televangeline.

7. Chance

Though normally reserved for dogs, this boy’s name takes the literal route. There is no need to

look this one up. If “good luck” had a better ring to it, children would have that as a name

instead.

6. Felix

This elegant boy’s name is fit for a king, or perhaps a statesman. The ancient Roman statesman,

Sulla, liked the name so much that he took it for himself, feeling like he was fortunate and

prosperous to deserve the name.

5. Ventura

It may sound like the name of an adventurer, but this is actually a Spanish name meaning “luck”

or “fortune.” There is also a boy’s version, Venturo, but it doesn’t mesh as well in English.

4. Asher

This rare boy’s name is making a comeback. Being from the Bible, this mean does not just mean

“lucky” but “blessed.” It belonged to one of Jacob’s 12 sons who went on to be a very influential

person.

3. Halona

An unusual case, this girl’s name is used by several Native American tribes across the eastern

United States. Some sort of fortune from the meaning of this name must have rubbed off on it to

cause it to spread so far and wide.

2. Madoc

This Welsh name carries the luck of the Irish both in origin and meaning. For the full package,

the child can be named Madoc and the grandchild named Maddox, which means “son of

Maddox.”

1. Laskshmi

The name of a Hindu goddess, this name is a promise of many wonderful things. It carrries

feminine qualities like beauty, grace, and charm, but also a promise of worldly comfort and

prosperity. In all, her name means “lucky omen” and promises to be one.
