It could an anglicized variant of the Latin Ludovicus.
It could be the difference in speech clarity between "g" and "ck."

My starting person - Benjamin Lodwig Davies - came from Moylgrove, Pembrokeshire. There is at least 150 years of history here. I hope we can go further.
My Great-Grandaunt Myra married Benjamin Lodwig Davies. I was fascinated by the name Lodwig as it is so close to the German Ludwig (and hence the wonderful Beethoven). No connection. I decided to find out more. I'm Claire and I just like finding out about families.
