Louis is a Baby Boy Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Louis.

The name Louis is a boy's name of German, French origin meaning "renowned warrior". Kate and William shocked the world when they announced that they'd named their third child Louis -- Prince Louis Arthur Charles, to be more precise. But we've been predicting a comeback for this classic name for a long time. Both Louis and Lewis are already quite popular again in Britain. And several other high-profile parents —like actors Sandra Bullock and Bill Pullman— beat the Duke and Duchess to the punch by naming their sons Louis years ago. The one complicating factor, at least in the U.S., is the association with comedian Louis C.K., who was widely condemned for sexual improprieties.
