Really? Where?

Where in any of the gospels does it read "And Jesus said to me, 'hey Luke (Mark/Matthew/John), __________________" ?

The gospels are unsigned. They are commonly attributed to men named "Luke", "Matthew", and "Mark", however it could've been any one.

How about a whole website full?

Authors use actual people/places in fictional works all the time. That doesn't make them "historically accurate"
