Other variants include: Людмила (Russian), Ludomiła, Ludmiła, Ludzimiła, Ludźmiła (Polish), Ludmilla (Hungarian).
The feast day for the saint is September 16, which is celebrated as a name day in Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Slovakia. Other name days include September 17 (Hungary), and February 20/May 7/July 30/October 26 (Poland).
