Like many names, Luis has its roots in names across the world. Luis is the Spanish form of the name Louis, which is the French version of the Latin name Ludovicus, which harkens back to the Germanic Ludwig. Confused yet?
It all goes back to the Germanic hlud for “fame” and wig for “warrior.” Whew! Luis has been in the top 100 names since 1980.
