The name Lam Luk Ka originates from a fertile pond in Bueng Lam Luk Ka District. When the government created the district Lam Luk Ka in 1904, they cut the word Bueng off. Locals say the name translates to English as 'song of the baby raven' and many raven statues adorn buildings and lampposts along the secondary highway through the city.

Khlong Rangsit is the main water resource of the district.
