Origin of Company Name

On February 1st, 1991, the 25th anniversary of our company’s foundation, as part of our CI (corporate identity) we changed our name from Meisho Kouki Co., Ltd. to Luceo. In Latin, Luceo means light, bright, and evident.
We’re often asked “Why Latin?” but the number one reason is that “it hasn’t become obsolete even after 100 years.”
Other reasons include that it is an intellectual, scientific, and internationallanguage.
This is because Latin has been used since before the 3rd – 4th century BC, and is currently used as the official language in the Roman Catholic Church, as well as for academic terms in medicine, biology, and for constellations.
Its importance as a tool for expressing the common ideas among Westerners has never changed, because Latin has endured as both a classic and, at the same time, current language.
