The name of the main character of a book dealing with drug abuse, "Go Ask Alice".
― Anonymous User  4/14/2005
The main character in the book "Go Ask Alice" is NOT called Alice! It is the diary of an annonymous teenage girl, whose name is never given, and the reason it's called "Go Ask Alice" is because there is a drug related song, "White Rabbit", that contains that line. It is also partly because of the fact that the "Alice" books by Lewis Carroll remind the heroine in one part of a drug trip - she even wonders if Carroll himself used drugs.

Incidentally, there IS a character in the book CALLED Alice, though she is a relatively minor character - a fellow addict the heroine meets on the streets.

It's a great book - and Alice is a great name! :)

Alice also comes from Greek origins meaning truth.

This is another great, classy name. It's simply pretty, and also my Aunt's name. I like the french pronunciation, A-LEES, better.

Alice is a short, sweet and feminine name, I love it.

Alice is a wonderful name. It reminds me of the characters 'Alice' from "Alice in Wonderland" (a wonderful fairytale) and "Go ask Alice" (a true and sad story).
Krystal4ever  8/12/2005
When I hear the name Alice I picture a sweet, blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl. I guess that's because of Alice In Wonderland. Nevertheless, I think this is a very simple and sweet name.

I love the name Alice, it's so underrated and people seem to think of 'Alice in Wonderland' when they hear it, but it's just such a great name.

I think Alice is a very pretty name. I wonder why it has become so unpopular. It is not only beautiful, but also does not risk being mispronounced all the time, unlike Alicia.
HebrideanBlack  3/25/2006
I agree that Alice is seldom used nowdays. It's not as common as it was about 50 years ago, so today someone named Alice would be different.

Don't forget Alice Cooper.
― Anonymous User  4/18/2006
I wouldn't name my daughter this, because it's rather boring, but I enjoy it. The only Alices I know are a sweet old lady at my church and a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy that lives across my street. It's very simple, classy, and poetic, and possesses a certain dark, almost gothic element. I think Emily, Violet, and Jane are similar -- beautiful, old-fashioned names with a tragic, Shakespearean undertone that are at first glance very ordinary and dull.
SeaHorse15  4/18/2006
My name is Alice and it is ok, I suppose. The only problem is my name doesn't have any good nicknames. If you know one please tell me! Or leave a comment about this name and the nickname. Please I'm desperate!

The Italian variant of "Alice" is the name "Alice", which is pronounced [aliche], where the stress is on the "i".
iva_toneva  5/29/2006
One of my best friends is called Alice. I think it's a real cute, girly name and quite an English sort of a name. It sounds good for a little girl or a woman. It's unfortunate the word "lice" is in it, though!

American McGee's Alice. Now, that's a good game. Also there is a book called "Looking Glass Wars" in which the girl spells her name "Alyss".

Alice Cullen. Vampire in the vampire saga by Stephenie Meyer. Alice is Edward's sister, Bella's friend and future sister-in-law, and Jasper's beloved. She can predict the future, and is the first to predict that Edward will fall in love with a human and that Bella will become a vampire.  11/24/2008
Alice Cooper has managed to make the name Alice scary.
pink_floyd_fan  8/1/2006
I always think of Alice in Wonderland when I hear the name. At a former job everyone would call me Alice because they said I looked so much like the character and then a new girl was hired with my name so I got a new name tag and went by Alice while at work. It was fun and I like the name. It's very pretty and simple.

I absolutely adore this name! My name is Alex but when I introduce myself most people hear Alice so I get called that and I clearly don't mind so no need to fix that mistake. :P
alexinwonderland  12/30/2006
Frankly, I'm not so fond of this name; it sounds so dull to me, although the French pronunciation is pretty in a way. Still, there's some sort of ring to "Alice" that I don't like. Maybe it's the spelling, maybe it's because of Lewis Carrol's "Alice in Wonderland" (I don't like Lewis Carroll), I don't know why.

I one met a girl who spelled her name "Allis". I absolutely loathed that spelling, somehow I felt it ruined this name that looks so elegant and somewhat exotic spelled out. "Alice" is great, but "Allis"? No way!

Superb American author Alice Hoffman wrote At Risk, Seventh Heaven, The Probable Future, Illumination Night, Practical Magic, Second Nature, and others.

This seems to be a great name if you want to give your daughter a "literary" future: Alice Munro, Alice Elliott Dark, Alice Walker, Alice McDermott.

Karcoolka  5/24/2007
This is my name. I suppose it's one of those names that looks nice to other people, but when you actually have the name, it's difficult to appreciate.

I get called things like 'Allison' and 'Al' all the time. And it seems that nobody can resist making that tiresome 'Alice in Wonderland' crack. It doesn't help that I fit the 'blue eyed blond' stereotype, either.

In youth, I hated my name. It's taken me years to come to terms and finally accept it, although I wouldn't go so far as to say I am happy with it.
Topaz Kitsune  6/6/2007
A very pretty name. I admit I prefer Alison, but since it's so much more common, and my preference is not very strong, I'd much sooner use Alice.

There are a few comments about Alice not being very popular - but warning, its popularity is on the rise, at least in the UK. In the Telegraph's top girls names in London 2006, it was positioned at no. 1 I believe. National tables more like 40. Could be a sign of what is to come both UK and US wide.

I was named after my great-grandmother Alice. My name is Allison though, my mom wanted to modernize the name. But I think the name Alice sounds nice. Too bad people tend to think of Alice and Wonderland when they hear the name. I think the name Alice will once again regain popularity. I know someone that named her little girl this name. It's very cute!

I love this name. It's so extremely pretty and feminine. Much better than Alicia. (But, as a huge fan of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, I might be biased.)
black_lace  3/3/2008
It's funny, people keep saying it reminds them of Alice in Alice In Wonderland, but to me I think of a small, thin girl, extremely pale and black short hair, and maybe in her late teens. Pixie or fairy like I guess. I've always thought of it that way. No, I didn't get that from the Book Twilight either. I've always imagined it like this. I like my view better than a blonde haired, blue eyed little girl. :)

This name was borne by the character Alice Hyatt. First introduced in the 1974 film "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore", where she was portrayed by Ellen Burstyn, who won both an Academy and BAFTA Award for the role. In 1976 the character became the central focus of an American sitcom, called simply "Alice". There, the character was portrayed by Linda Lavin. During the 9 years the series aired, the actress received 2 Golden Globe Awards and received an Emmy Award nomination.

One of the world's first set of sextuplets are born in Chicago, Illinois. (There were reported but unverified earlier births of sextuplets being born in U.S. on December 30, 1831, in Italy in 1844 and in Maine in 1847) The Bushnell family delivers six babies, three boys, Alberto, Laberto and Norberto, and three girls, Alice Elizabeth, Alincia, and Lucy. Laberto and Lucy die at birth but we believe the other four babies survived the birth. Alinica reportedly survives to age 85, dying on March 27, 1952 in Warsaw, New York. We've also seen a Guinness Book reference that claimed all six sextuplets survived at least two months.

It's such a nice little name, but that makes you wonder if it'll haunt your kid. They'll forever be tagged by that sweet-like-gumdrops feel.

My name is Alice. I always loved me name, it was different for girls my age at the time (born in 1958), of course, I have had to hear "Go Ask Alice", "Alice Blue Gown", ... In Wonderland ... In DAIRYland (born in WI!) ... doesn't live here anymore, and ON and ON! :)
For my 50th birthday this summer a local DJ, known for a "Connect The Classics" contest used my name as the answer playing "Alice" songs. That was cool. Alice In Chains, White Rabbit and Cooper.
Nicknames! My long-standing one for over 30 years has been "Malice". In High school it was "AL". (?) In grade school, from the dork boys it was All-ASS. Not too nice. Oh well. It's not too common, and old ladies have that name. Oh wait! I AM one now! :)
Overall, I am very happy with it. I am a dog walker by trade and my initials are AKC. Perfect.

My middle name is Alice. A couple of friends make fun of me because it's so old-fashioned sounding coupled with my first name (Margaret), but I kind of like it. It's after my great-grandma Al (short for Alice obviously), and it does work nicely with Margaret even though everyone calls me Maggie. Margaret Alice sounds much better than Maggie Alice.
MaggAims2Live  8/11/2008
I love this name, but I see it as being on either a very sweet or very gothic girl. I don't see my future daughter as being enough of either, but somewhere in between. I think I will persuade my friend to use this name one day though. She'd like the classic and gothic thing.

Since they didn't know how to pronounce English names in Norway "back in the old days", people tended to treat them as if they were Norwegian. Thus my grandmother's aunt was named Alice, pronounced like [al-EE-së]. Sounds like a completely different name, but not bad at all!

I've always really liked this name. It makes me think of:
1. A little girl with blond hair
2. Alice Cullen, Edward's "sister" in the Twilight books
3. Alice Wilder, Almanzo's sister in the Little House books
4. Alice Deere, Angela and Denton Deere's daughter in The Westing game.
thecookiemonster  2/5/2009
With Alyssa so popular, I'm surprised Alice hasn't been used more lately. I think I do prefer Alyssa, since you can get the nickname Lyssie, but Alice has a nice soft sound, that reminds me of a Victorian-era British girl.
bunnyfunny  2/9/2009
I love Alice! It's such a cute name! And it suits all ages. It makes me think of Alice Cullen from Twilight, which is good because she's like my fave character. Overall I give it an eight out of ten. If I have a girl there's definitely a possibility I'll call her Alice.

I'm scared for the future of this name. It's been my favorite name since I was a little girl.

My name is Alice, and I've always been quite neutral towards it. I think it's a classical name, and it can be pretty or dark thanks to certain famous bearers. However, I've actually started to hate being called Alice since the Twilight books (I don't like Twilight at all), and so many of my friends keep telling me how 'lucky' I am to share Alice Cullen's name. I don't think so. I much preferred the 'White Rabbit' and Alice Cooper references I used to get pre-Twilight. Overall though, I guess it's on ok name.

I'm sorry, but I dislike this name. Mostly because it's mine. I've had to deal with the many associations with this name. Some of my teachers call me Alice in Wonderland.

Also a Czech name, though not so widely used. The pronunciation is "ah-lee-tse". "Alice In Wonderland" is not an issue where I live, because the translator changed heroine's name to "Alenka". :) But even for English speaking bearer I like Alice much better than e.g. boring Alison. All the references never bothered me, since they are mostly good ones (Alice Cooper, Alice In Chains).

Alice is is a very popular name in different medias, but not as much in real life- though it's on its way to. I don't mind- it fits little girls and older women alike, and reminds me of surrealism stories and the shade of blue.
lucyskydiamonds  2/9/2010
There is something very intelligent about this name: I don't see this as a sickly sweet little-girl name at all - it seems sharp and cool to me. I imagine Alice as someone not to be messed with. Perfect for all ages.

I quite like the name Alice. It's such a shame how unpopular it's become. In this fifteen-year-old's opinion, it's a very timeless and classy name. It can sound either cute or mature, and as a result is a name that can stick no matter your age without seeming pretentious or annoying.

My name is Alice, and I couldn't be happier with it. It has its drawbacks, of course. People tend to call me Alex or Allison, and of course there's the inevitable "Alice in Wonderland" association, but I've learned to use it to get people to remember my name, rather than just get annoyed about it. "Um. I forgot your name." "Alice. Like Wonderland." There are worse things to be associated with. It's also uncommon without being unpronounceable/impossible to remember.

I'm an aspiring novelist, and with this name, I think I'd only ever apply to it a villainous character.
Alice is an incredibly sweet and gentle name, so I could only apply that to someone who is the exact opposite; someone devious, coarse, evil, even. And it rather oddly suits a villain, like that.

My first thought when I see or hear the name Alice is not Alice in Wonderland. I immediately think of Alyss from John Flanagan's Ranger's Apprentice series. Alyss is one of my favorite characters. I also love Alice Cullen from the Twilight books.

I love this name! It's classic and cute and also will do well for any age! Cute on a little girl. I would use it. I don't mind that it's a popular name because it's just so cute and adorable!

I don't know why, but this name makes me think of a girl who is sweet and mousy looking.

Alice seems like an old lady name or a little girl's name - can't imagine it on anyone in between really. It's an ok name I guess but Alicia is better.

One of my closest friends' name is Alice. We call her Allie. I think this name is so brilliant. It is a very sweet and charming name. Very classic.

10 out of 10

This is the kind of name that won't take over the girl. The girl will make the name. The name will not make the girl. This name can be to an athletic girl, academic girl, or even a cheerleader girl. This name has many possibilities.

I think this is a nice, classic name. However, I can't help but think of lice when I look at the name. Also, the Italian pronunciation (ah-lee-che) reminds me of leeches.

This is a wonderful classic. Short, simple and sweet. I love the association with Alice in Wonderland, Alice Walker, Alice Sebold and Alice Cooper. This name is so lovely. If it weren't so popular, I would give this as a first name. Now, I will use it in the middle spot.

My name's Alice and I love it. There are so so many spellings, which frustrate me, and pronunciations which I adore. I often get called Alison or Alex, but my favourite nickname is Al, named after my favourite fictional character, Alphonse Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist.

But the one thing thing that really really gets up my nose is when people think that just because I'm called Alice, I'm going to be all kind and innocent. I think I get into fights purely so people don't assume that I'm all sweet. The bright red hair doesn't help either.

Alice is my name. I used to hate it because in school at recess I would be skipping around in a blue dress to my shins and a little bow in my hair with mary janes and people would be laughing "Here's Alice, Our very best friend, skipping in wonderland!" Soon I got used to it and started loving my name. I can't believe I still do in middle school. I'm going to name my daughter after my name. I'm going to name her Alicia.

On the childrens tv shows, "The Koala Brothers" and "Angelina Ballerina," one of the characters from each show is named Alice! My 2 year-old daughter pats her chest and says "that me name " whenever she hears the name 'Alice ' mentioned on tv. Let's not forget the childrens song " Alice the Camel " has 10 humps, go Alice, Go! It's a fun counting song with a dance that's easy to do.

I am an aspiring author and my character "Alice" is a spirited, brown eyed and haired girl who is an obvious tomboy and often embarrasses her friend with her antics [this is back when ladies were... Well, ladies!] So that Wonderland stereotype doesn't apply to me! I love the name for a strong willed spunky girl.

Alice is my favourite name for a girl I am not planning on having children any time soon but if and when I do, I will want to call her Alice if it is a girl. I just love everything about this name: the sound, the spelling and the meaning, which is noble. It is hard to think of middle names though. Alice itself is a great middle name as well as a perfect first name because it flows really well but finding a middle name for Alice is hard. So far I like Alice Marina, Alice Juliette, Alice Lily or Alice Rose.

My 3 year old is named Alice. Here in the US it's not a very common name for little girls, or anyone besides older women, for that matter. Obviously, its been receiving a popularity boost since about 2009, but I've loved the name since I was little. It's so beautiful and old fashioned. Personally, I think it's silly how parents these days are trying so hard to give their children 'unique' names and end up making something up while names like this that have been around for ages go unnoticed. I cannot picture an Alice who isn't bright, energetic, and smiling all the time, like my little girl :-) I'm very glad that its making a comeback, I have a feeling it will be in the top 100 in a few years. It really is a perfect name, and an excellent choice for a little girl!

This name is sweet, but boring. On the TV show, Mel's Diner, the main character, Alice, is plain and mousy so this name reminds me of someone PLAIN, MOUSY and BORING. Don't like how this name sounds either. The beginning, "Al", has a nice upward sound but then the end of the name falls flat and dull with a lispy/hiss sound, "LICE".
Also, Looks like and reminds me of "A lice!" Gross!

It's simply pretty and happily classic. I would probably have named my boy Alice Isabella after both my grandmothers (had he been a girl). I'm glad their names are revived again. People who don't like the -lice component. Might want to consider the Welsh form Alys.

This is my name. It's old-fashioned, but it is quite common. I don't like the fact that when people think of Alice they think of "blonde haired, blue eyed girl" or "old lady baking cookies" and I hate that song "Alice the camel"!

As a longtime lover of Alice in Wonderland, I can't help but love Alice as a name. It's so pretty and sweet, but unusual and just a bit mad, in a good way. Back when I used to want kids, I wanted to name one Alice, and this maternal love for the name still stands even though I no longer want to have children. I'm also a big fan of Alice Cooper's music, so that helps too, ha ha.

I basically call myself Alice because I was named after a family member named Alice, but my name is Alle and I can't find the meaning of it. Alle is apparently hard to say... It's Allie without the I, I have often said I was going to change the spelling of it to Alleigh just to rub it in.

My name is Alice. I don't love or hate it. If you name your child this you are setting them up to receive a million "Oh, like Alice in Wonderland" comments or related jokes, which are more common for the first 20 years, then slow down. You also get people singing "Alice, Alice, who the f*** is Alice?" A LOT. Perhaps that one will die down with a newer generation. I also have many people misspell my name, assuming it is instead Allison, Alicia or Alex.
I do enjoy the nicknames my closer friends have given me, including Ali and Ally (both pronounced Al-ee), Al and A.

What can I say about Alice? It is a wonderful name and it absolutely delights me to know that it's rising in popularity. I originally thought about using Alice for a possible second daughter but very unfortunately, I cannot find that perfect middle name to go with it. Also I know that my sister was in love with this name for a long time too, and I was almost certain that if she had a daughter, her name would be that. She does have a daughter but she isn't named Alice but in some alternate universe in my mind, her name is that. I'm aware how bizarre that sounds but for me, using Alice just wouldn't feel right. It also doesn't go with my #1 girl name that I absolutely plan to use as well as another name I have lined up. I wouldn't use Alice most likely, but I strongly encourage anyone else to. It's a great name!

Alice is one of the sweetest, saddest, most Gothic names out there. No lie. I think it's mainly due to literary history, which then influenced popular music (Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit," Sisters of Mercy's "Alice," etc.). Alice is equally at home in a bright sundress, ghostly white, and in all black with a spiky choker.

Also, I think Alice is most fitting on a redhead. Just my perception.

Alice Poppy Madeleine Gross was an English girl who was murdered in London. Gross suffered from anorexia, which was suggested by her mother and some mainstream media sources in the early days of the search for her as being related to her disappearance. She lived in Hanwell, west London, with her sister, Nina Gross, and parents, Jose Gross and Rosalind Hodgkiss. She went missing after leaving her home in Hanwell on 28 August 2014. The search for her was the largest deployment of Metropolitan Police officers in a search operation since the 7 July 2005 London bombings. It involved 600 officers from eight forces. Gross' body was found in the River Brent five weeks later, on 30 September.

I like Alice. It's pretty much overlooked, you see it everywhere, plus in some countries it's very popular right now as far as I know. That's why even if I wouldn't live in Poland, I wouldn't rather call my daughter Alice. But I still like it, it's very girly, but also I must agree with one of the comments above that it has that very intriguing Gothic, tragic vibe, which I really like. I don't really associate it with "Alice In Wonderland". I like how Alice is elegant, classy and fits a woman of any age. I think an Alice is a very kind-hearted, good-looking, caring, expressive woman who loves art and is just sweet and has a good taste and loves beauty. The pronunciation I like more though is Alys, although it has a completely different feel. I kind of like our Alicja too, it has this Alice feel plus something very noble-sounding to it, but it's fairly popular right now and losing its mysterious charm for me.
