Louis is a ♂ male name.
Louis is a French variant of the Old High German name Ludwig. The original form of the name was Hlodovic, which developed into the name Chlodowig over the centuries, and became the Latinized form Clodovico, then Ludovicus and finally was Frenchified into Ludovic and Louis.
Louis means “famous warrior” (from Old High German “hlūt” = famous/loud +”wīg” = battle/war).
