2.ルーク/路加(るか) (Ruuku or ruka, if you mean St. Luke)
C is written as "シー" like in "シーディー" (shiidii), which means "CD".
In Katakana there is F, but only for Fu. Any other syllables with this letter are written alternately as "ファ" (fa), "フェ" (fe), "フィ" (fi), "フォ" (fo). You simply took フ and and small ァェィォ
There is no L in Japanese Language, but this consonant is replaced by R, so for example ラ can means "ra" or "la".
Q is simply spelled as "ク" (ku).
V is replaced by B, so for example ビ can means "bi" or "vi". V can be also spelled as "ヴ". Syllables with V letter are created in the same way as F.
X is quite random. Letter itself is read as "エックス" (ekkusu).

Sorry for mistake. My English is not really good.
- EustachyMotyka January 5, 2014 at 7:03amI have to affix something about C: Letter C alone can be read as "シー", but how this will be written is depended on how this letter is pronounced in word.
