    Nope. It would be odd for Russians if they name their child "Люк". BTW, Лука is out of date, so you can rarely meet a person with this name.

    As for coincidence translation:
    "Лук" is "onion"
    but
    "Люк" is "hatch"

    The only Лука I know is Лука М*дищев, a character from a dirty poem by Барковский

    Does the English pronunciation of the name of Luke goes with [u:] or [ju]?

    Luke is pronounced in English like: l-ooo-k

    The "e" at the end is silent

    Если вдруг открылся люк
    И оттуда льёт вода,
    Не пугайтесь, это глюк,
    Так бывает иногда!
