Hi Rene,

Actually, Luther is a given name in Germany. The surname is more common, but the surname derives from the given name. According to Wilfried Seibicke the name is not "recommended" because of the famous surname of Martin Luther, but it's still allowed, unlike e.g. Müller which is a mere surname.
