when I created the “pattern” page for my CAL at ravelry I needed to name my lion, and since I tend to give my creatures human-like names and I wanted to name my lion something starting with an “L” the first name coming to my mind was Ludwig, quick decision the pattern would be Ludwig, the lion … but then I started thinking about the name and it turns out Ludwig is a must-have-name for lions, I mean another famous Ludwig with lion like hair was van Beethoven:

and just think of Ludwig XIV – the sun king as well, I mean royal and sunny 😉

Ludwig is for lions ^__^
