Recorded as MacLuckie, MacLucky, McLuckie, and Cluckie, this is a Scottish surname. It is a variant form of the name MacLucas, which is derived from the Gaelic 'Mac Lucais', meaning 'son of Lucas'. Lucas is an ancient name which originated from the Greek 'Loukas', man from Lucania, which was a region in Southern Italy. The name is derived from the Italian dialect with a word meaning 'bright' or 'shining', which may have been derived from 'lux', light, (genitive 'lucis'). The name development since 1414 (see below) includes the following: Fynlay M'Lowkas (1493), Donald Maclugash (1502), John Maklucas (1524, Cawdor) and George Macluckie. Other recordings taken from surviving church registers include William McLuckie who married Jane Day on May 10th 1841 at St. Andrew-by-the-Wardrobe, London, whilst in Dunbarton, Scotland, John, son of Robert McLuckie and Janet Law, was christened on April 20th 1823. Anne Cluckie was a passenger on the ship 'Fairfield of Liverpool', bound for New York, on November 5th 1846. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Fergus M'Lucas, which was dated 1414, in the Book of the Thanes of Cawdor, during the reign of King James 1 of Scotland, 1406-1437. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
