Declension of "Lucas"

Post by Lucus Eques » Tue May 24, 2005 2:55 am

Saluete! chairete! I was wondering how the name "Lucas" or the like might by declined in Latin, and also how the equivalent, original Greek "Loukas" might as well. Would anyone know?

I don't understand; is the rest of the declension like a first declension noun then?

n. Lucas
g. Lucae
d. Lucae
a. Lucam
ab. Luca
v. Lucas?

yes. v. Luca.

there is nothing odd about the declension; it is to be treated like Aeneas.
