I write this message in response to this previous message:
It means "voyager":
BEATRIX f English, German
From Viatrix, a feminine form of the Late Latin name Viator which meant "voyager, traveller". The spelling of the name was altered by association with Latin beatus "blessed". This was the name of a 4th-century saint who was strangled to death after her brothers were beheaded.
Here are names that mean "blessed"/"lucky"/"happy"/"joy":
Benedicta / Bettina (2)
Edmunda - See Edmund for meaning
Edrica - See Edric for meaning
Fortunata - See Fortunato for meaning
Felicity / Felicia
Gay / Gaye - In the 1800s, "gay" meant "happy" (still does, actually) and didn't have the association of "homosexual"
Letitia / Lettice
Hope this helps!
