A question from one of our viewers

Meghan from Ohio asks:

Why do you call him Luke if his name is Luther?

Excellent question Meghan!


Lisa Answers: Why on earth do you call someone named William, “Bill” or why is “Jack” short for “John”? Mysteries abound when it comes to names and this one is no different. My grandfather’s name was Luther and everyone called him Luke. I don’t know why that’s the case — but that’s the way it is!

Perhaps not the answer you were looking for, but the best answer you’re gonna get!
