The Luby Flag
The Czech Connection
email from a teacher in Luby, Czech Republic:
The word "luby" is very old - more than 1200 years.It comes from the age of common Slavonic existence.It has ment layer of wood under the bark, bast.It connects with a Latin word "liber", which means both bast and book, because the texts were written originaly on inner side of bark.In our area is the word "luby" used in this meaning-the sides of belly of string musical instruments. It coheres with historicaly basic activity,music instruments making,of the inhabitants of this place. But your name can have a different older origin. It can have an Indoeuropean basis "leubh", which gave a basis to an old czech word "luby" and latin word "libet" or german "lieb". It connects with czech "lÝbit se"(like), "lÝbeznř" (beautiful), or "lÝbat" (kiss).
Yours sincerely Irena Kindlovß - the teacher of SOUHN Luby

Another Allan Luby roams the planet. This a note from Allan Luby of Kenora Ontario to Allan Luby (Webmaster) of Corbyville Ontario
Hello Allan, Yes it is odd, not to many Luby's around.
I'm the Chief (former) of Ochiichagwe'Babigo'Ining Ojibway Nation in
Treaty #3 in the Kenora Area, no Paul in the name.

Have checked out your web-site. Interesting, our family name comes from Ukraine. The family moved here in the late 1890's (Grandfather) and 1905 (Grandmother) The Ukrainian name means to like or to love.
I have little information beyond my Great-Grandparents
due to the Russion rule of Ukraine.
The Irish Connection
TRACING THE IRISH: A GEOGRAPHICAL GUIDE
email from John Luby in Scotland
Nice to hear from you, Allan. Sorry
for not replying immediately, but I don't always keep the best of health these
Can't be of any huge help, I'm afraid, as I've never enquired seriously into my own family history beyond what I heard from my folks and encountered during idle moments on the internet. Doesn't seem to be a common name anywhere. Although I now live in Scotland (where I'm still an 'incomer' after 33 years!) I was born in the NE of England of Irish stock. I was in my late teens before I even heard of anyone outside my immediate family with the same name. My Dad's folks were Irish, and we always assumed our forebears had come across either during the Famine, or perhaps with the Navvies during the Industrial Revolution. I've never come across any particularly Scottish connection - there are many Lubys in Scotland, but those few I've met all seem to be of Irish stock. The name apparently originated as O'Luby/O'Lubaig of Ballyluby in Tipperary (seriously!) though I've personally never met or heard of anyone bearing the traditional form of the name. The only famous Irish Luby I've heard of was one of the founder members of the Fenian movement - there's a Luby Street in Dublin.
Have to say the Czech connection is news to me - though phonetically it sounds reasonable.
And that's about the extent of my knowledge. I do have a couple of Bookmarks that might interest you, if you don't have them already:
When I first started using the internet, about 7 or 8 years ago, a search like yours brought up only half a dozen names. There seem to be hundreds now! Quite a lot in the USA

email from recording artist Jan Luby
Hi Allan, Where are you located? My father's family was from Denver, Colorado and there are still some Luby's there and in surrounding areas. These are Irish Lubys (originally O'Looby, which is Gaelic for clown) and not the Jewish Lubys (shortened from Lubinski)..I will check out the site. As you probably know, it's not a very common name. My father was Richard Luby. His stage name was Mel Ody. He was one of the best jugglers this country ever saw. He worked silent except for his own humming (melody) and when he worked with bands or orchestras. If you know anything about juggling, he was a peer of Bobby May's. My father's cousin, George Luby has done an extensive family tree...But I don't think he's hooked up to cyberspace...He's in Pueblo, Co.

email from Judi Luby
My name is Judi, and I am artist Bob Luby's wife. My apologies for not acknowledging your mail sooner. We have looked at your site, and found it to be quite interesting and well constructed. Thank you for including our name and site. We have tried researching Bob's family to no avail. The original name was Lubyjewski, and because my father-in-law was in business, and no one could remember his name, he shortened it. Unfortunately, I have not had the time to do extensive research as yet. Since you have included us on your site, I am asking your permission to include your site as a link on ours. Perhaps one of our viewers can assist you in obtaining more Luby information. I didn't see any links back to you on any of the other artist's pages, so I thought I had better ask permission. Please advise, and have a great day !
