Good morning Eleanor,
This will help:

All of the following are the same name masculine/feminine
(note the use of gender suffixes in differing languages- a, us, e, as,)
Ancient German "Hlod'wig" (fame+warrior)
Ludwig      Ludwiga       German
Ludovikus  Ludovica      Latin
Louis         Louise         English
Ludwik      Ludwika       Polish
Liudvikas   Liudvika       Lithuanian

Also used in Polish as a given name is a variation, "Luiza" = 'Louisa'.
