Origin of the name ALICE.
Etymology of the name ALICE.
Meaning of the baby name ALICE.

  

ALICE.  A contraction of Adeliza (q.v.), from Adelaide (q.v.), variously rendered "noble person," "noble cheer" "noble maiden." 

Alice is our true English form (of German Adelheid), though it has been twisted into Alicia, and then referred for derivation to the Greek Alexios, so as often to appear in Latin documents of the later middle ages in the form Alexia; whereas in earlier times, before its origin was forgotten, it is translated by Adelicia, Adelisa, or Adelidis. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
