Comments for the name Alice

Comments for ALICE:

The name of the main character of a book dealing with drug abuse, "Go Ask Alice".
-- Destry  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 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).

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.

There's a book series which is sort of a reimagining of Alice in Wonderland called the Looking Glass Wars in which it's spelt Alyss. I don't really like the name Alice for some reason but I love it if it's spelt Alyss.

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.

Alice is the name of the main characters in two of the best books I've read in a long time. Still Alice by Lisa Genova and Alice I Have Been by Melanie Banjamin (historical fiction based off Alice Liddell, the real life muse of Lewis Carroll). I am simply in love with the name. It's so classy and sophisticated, while fun and spirited. I plan on using it as a first or middle for a future daughter; it's also my Great Grandmother's name.

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.

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.
