Louis is a masculine name of French and German origins, derived from the Old German name Ludwig. The name is composed of two elements, *hlūdaz (meaning "loud" or "famous") and *wiganą (meaning "to battle" or "to fight"). As a result, Louis translates to "famous warrior" or "loud warrior". The name has been borne by 18 kings of France, starting with Louis I, the son of Charlemagne. Some other notable figures with the name Louis include French scientist Louis Pasteur, Métis leader Louis Riel, and Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson.
