User comments for Ludivine (Meaning / History Only)

Ludivine is not a feminine form of Ludwig. There are a few theories:

1. It could be from the Germanic "lind" (sweet, soft) and "win" (friend), making it a form of Lidwine.

2. The Slavic "lud" (people) and "win" - 'people's friend'

3. Although this is not its true origin, it can be seen as 'lux divine' - divine light.

As for its history, it was almost unknown in France before a TV adaptation of the book 'Les Gens de Mogador' in the 70s, which featured a character named Ludivine. It then became extremely popular throughout the 80s and 90s. [noted -ed]
