The word “Lukka”, appears in multiple Near Eastern texts which appear to describe a region of Anatolia.
Although it is uncertain which part, Lycia is one strong candidate, as the Greek word Lykaeonia, could easily be a transliteration of lukkawani (literally the people who live in lukka).
Whoever the Lukka were, they appear to have had frequent conflicts, including religious disputes, with the Hittites, whose power was based in Eastern Anatolia. The Hittite capital Hattusa is one of the sites destroyed in this period.
It has been proposed that the Shekelesh might have come from the Shekha river region in western Anatolia.
The Sherden may be from Sardis in Western Anatolia, based on the origins of others Sea People in Anatolia, the word Sherden may have come from Mount Sardena, or the Sardanion plain.
The Teresh are the Tyrrhenians who according to Herodotus came from ancient Lydia (Western Anatolia) to Italy.
There are multiple compelling theories that the names of at least some of the Sea People derive from places in Anatolia. The Lukka in particular are identified by name in Near Eastern sources. The Sea People were likely a coalition of peoples from Anatolia.
