Luby is generally considered a "surname" - last name. However, there are examples that I've seen where the name has been used as a first name and in other instances where people shortened their surnames to "Luby."
There are over ten spellings of the name from Ireland including Looby, Loobie, Lubie, O'Luby and so forth. Many Irish imagrants, including my great grandfather (Michael), changed the spelling of the name once they arrived in this country. Michael was born in Roscommon (middle, south of Ireland) in 1830. There are numerous references to the name but its generally thought that the Luby's arrived in Ireland around 1100 AD.
