Meaning "famous warrior"

Still a little-used name, it’s a charming and classic moniker made popular by Sandra Bullock’s delicious pint-sized son. The fact that it has such great nickname possibilities – Lou and Louie – make it that much more adorable.

My grandfather's name is Aurele (he's also French).  I want to name my daughter after him. I love his name & I want to pass it along.

Louis is NOT of French origin - it originally comes from Germany. People think it's French because of the numerous French kings who had the name.
