This is also the Welsh form of Alice.

The spelling doesn't look very intelligent.

I agree, it gives the impression that the parents didn't pay too much attention in grade school English classes.

Alys Pearsall Smith (1867-1951), from Philadelphia, was the first wife of renowned British philosopher Bertrand Russell (Earl Russell) (1872-1970).

I think this is an adorable version of Alice - more balanced and without the "lice" element that makes me think of woodlice!

This is my middle name and I love it. I think it is more creative than Alice and is really unique. Teachers have always, always spelled my name Alice. It gets to be a drag!

I agree with a previous comment - this is the modern Welsh form of Alice, deriving from Alis. My Welsh cousin bears this name.

I much prefer this spelling to the more commonplace 'Alice.' I think it looks prettier for some reason. Lovely name spelt either way!

This name isn't as modern or trendy as the spelling might suggest. Famous bearers include Alys of France, Countess of the Vexin (1160 – c. 1220), Canadian singer Alys Robi (1923-2011), and British TV presenter Alys Fowler (born 1978).

I think some commenters have gotten the idea that this is a cre8tive spelling of Alice. Actually, both have been historically used. This is a Welsh variant and I think it's lovely.

I dislike this name, it's unbalanced and it looks like a big spelling mistake.
