  • Additional Info:
    Lucine is the Armenian vocabulary word for "moon".

    Lucine is also the French form of Lucina.
    In Roman mythology, Lucina was the goddess of childbirth. She safeguarded the lives of women in labor. Later, Lucina was an epithet for Juno as ("she who brings children into light").

    The name was generally taken to have the sense of "she who brings children into the light" (Latin: lux "light"), but may actually have been derived from lucus ("grove") after a sacred grove of lotus trees on the Esquiline Hill associated with the goddess and tended by the Vestal virgins.
