Actually, thinking of German men's names,. I prefer Wolfgang to Ludwig. Although, I'm partial to Wolfgang because it's a family name.
It sounds really outdated and prissy to me personally (German is my first language)
It is the name of many German kings!
It is also the name usually translated as "Louis" and "Luis".
It is a beautiful name in German!
It probably sounds better in German
Is it pronounced ludvig?
I think this name should be in "clunky yet cool" :P
Ludwig could easily be revived! It happened with Sophia and Max, didn't it?
