Lucas Miltiades Miller (September 15, 1824 - December 4, 1902) was a U.S. Representative from Wisconsin.

Born in Livadia, Greece, Miller was left an orphan at the age of four, when he was adopted by J.P. Miller, an American who served as a colonel in the Greek Army during the Greek revolution. He accompanied his foster father upon his return to the United States and settled in Montpelier, Vermont in 1828. He attended the common schools and studied law, being admitted to the bar in 1845 beginning a practice in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, in 1846. He also engaged in agricultural pursuits and served as colonel of militia in the Mexican–American War. He served as a member of the Wisconsin State Assembly in 1853 and was commissioner of the Wisconsin Board of Public Works. He served ten years as chairman of the Winnebago County Board of Supervisors.

Miller was elected as a Democrat to the Fifty-second Congress (March 4, 1891-March 3, 1893), though was an unsuccessful candidate for renomination in 1892. He died in Oshkosh, Wisconsin on December 4, 1902 and was interred in Riverside Cemetery.

While serving in Congress, he proposed a Constitutional amendment to change the country's name to "the United States of the Earth".[1]
