    Louis is French. 

    Luigi is italian. 

    Personally, I never saw "Luis" before. 

    I have seen "Lois". 

    "Luis" looks Spanish to me.

    P.S.  I went searching and found this in 15 seconds:

    No, "Luis" is the Spanish form of "Louis". 

    The Portuguese form is "Luís" or "Luiz".The German form is "Alois", "Ludwig" or "Lutz".

    Not traditionally. Luis is a name common in Spanish and Portuguese. The german equivalent is Ludwig

    It is a Latino name.

    But of course there may be some German boys who are called 'Luis' anyway, as there may be French children called 'Hans' and Burmese children called 'Anna'.
