Luken – one in 100,000!

Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Luken by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Luken ranks at #5,513. That means there are 5,512 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Luken.
