So I think you want to know 1. The Origin and meaning of Luis 2. The Russian version of it. Well I guess Luis comes from Louis, which comes from the Germanic name Hlodwig. The Russian version is Ludovic. Hlod means Glory, and wig means a fight. So the -ic ending has a different origin from the typical -ic in Russian names, which stands for 'son'.
