Luz and Lud

Prompted by some recent threads, I want to ask the list whether anyone thinks there is any
connection between Lud (Lydia in Asia Minor) and the 'Luz' of Jdg 1:26 which is said to be
the name of a Hittite city built by a former citizen of Bethel-Luz? Can we posit any of
the zayin-daleth development which we see in Aramaic in the two names here?
