What could be a more appropriate name for your little prince than Louis? Over the years, 18 French kings have had this name, which is French for Ludoyicus, the Latin form of Ludwig (“hold,” meaning “fame,” and “wig,” meaning “war”). It was a popular name during the Middle Ages, but once Louis XVI succumbed to the guillotine, its novelty was cut short. By the turn of the 20th century, it was back in favor. When actress Sandra Bullock adopted a baby in 2010, she named him Louis.
