Is it pronounced like "like"?



And I don't care about middle names. My middle name and daughter's middle name is something made up. It's a family name so I used it.

Well, since it is a middle name, I guess it doesn't matter, but I don't "lycke" it at all.

I guess according to BTN Lykke is a Danish name. And means good fortune and happiness. It's ranked 77 in Norway.



Good luck!

Luca sounds like a boys name. I wouldn't use it for a girl no matter how its spelled. Lykke or Lycke. Because those look to be 'like' or 'lick'
