I know someone whose middle name is Alice, tho it's spelled ELLICE. Horrible imo, I strongly prefer Alice.
Alice in Wonderland. A springtime name. Simple yet beautiful.
Love the name Alice, my aunt and grandmother were named Alice. My uncle Frank married an Alice and his mother's name was Alice. My grandfather's name was also Frank. We had two Alice's both married to Franks. Was interesting!
What a coincidence! I immediately thought of Alice and Frank Longbottom, two well-respected Aurors who were part of the Order of the Phoenix, who lost their memory after being tortured by four of Voldemort's supporters. Their son, Neville, grows from a cowardly boy into a true hero.
Alice is my favourite classic girl's name. Short but sweet and without an ounce of twee.
I love it! My favorite pronunciation is A-lees because it sounds like Elise. But I like Al-is.
Love! The nickname Ali is also so beautiful!
Absolutely gorgeous. I like this name Alice because it's pretty ❤❤.
Also Judeo-French:
I think Alice is a beautiful name that has gracefully stood the test of time. I love its meaning “noble, exalted”, its length, the adorable potential nickname Ali/Ally, the lovable association with the classic Alice In Wonderland, and everything else about it. It has a gorgeous vintage charm but also sounds sweetly modern and it ages wonderfully.
Overall, I think Alice is a lovely name.
I’m surprised that no one mentioned Alice Ball, a chemist who worked to cure people with leprosy.
Very pretty! Reminds me of Alice in Wonderland.
Pretty and classic. The spelling Alicia is beautiful too.
Cute. Love that this name is back! The nickname Ali is very sweeet!
Beautiful, I think of "Alice in Wonderland".
Love❤️. The nickname Ali is so pretty!
Beautiful name, but is very common.
Now if the person is English or French then you would say “Alis” but if the person is Italian or Romanian then you would say “Alee-Ché”.
I’m not a fan of Alice, but the nickname Ali is so sweet & innocent!
Alice is beautiful! It's so sweet.
Alice has a very soft quality to it...Very euphonious.
Alice is such a sweet, soft and loving name with a touch of refinement and a sprinkle of wonder. She's the darling of literature...Did you know the "real" Alice had dark hair? I expect your child will be able to be gifted lots of whimsical and original pieces of art which will already be personalized :) Even without the inevitable Wonderland connection, Alice is a blend of royalty, sophistication and sweetness. A truly enchanting name! Very pretty on a blonde and undeniably chic on a brunette!

Alice is also Estonian. The name day for Alice in Estonia is September 16.Source:
A beautiful name, especially how the name rolls off the tongue. Other than the "Alice of Wonderland" comments associated with this name, it is an excellent name, and I would consider naming your child this!
Love this name. It has many variants: Alys, Alis, Alyss. It also sounds pretty classic.
Alice is a nice, classic name. We absolutely LOVE the nickname Ali as well.
I didn’t realize how popular this is getting, the #16 most looked up name on nameberry so far in 2021. I personally think of an old lady. However, the nickname, Ali, is absolutely ADORABLE!
It's really cute! Maybe for a fictional character though because of how common it is.
Beautiful! Really wish it wasn't so common! :(
Fun fact: there is a genus of plants in the phlox family named "Aliciella". Apparently, Aliciella was named for the botanist Alice Eastwood.Alice Eastwood (January 19, 1859 – October 30, 1953) was a Canadian American botanist. She is credited with building the botanical collection at the California Academy of Sciences, in San Francisco. She published over 310 scientific articles and authored 395 land plant species names, the fourth-highest number of such names authored by any female scientist. There are seventeen currently recognized species named for her.
Beautiful, timeless, classy name. I can imagine a very smart, adventurous, and beautiful woman with this name that means "noble." A perfect name.
Boring antiquated name.
In the movie Go Ask Alice, the main character's name is Alice.
I'm Italian and in my language it has a nice sound to me. But it's also (same spelling and same pronunciation) the name of a fish (the anchovies) and it always has stopped me from loving this name, unfortunately. It's sad.
Alice Lee, best known for originating the role of Heather Duke in Heathers the musical.
Alice is derived from the Proto-Germanic words "aÞala-" (noble), and "haidu" (appearance, kind); hence athalahaidu (aÞalahaidu), related to the Old High German Adalhaidis, which is related to Adelaide:
I like Alice! Although it's quite common, it's a very pretty name and a lovely choice! :)
I love it as a middle name. With the right first name, Alice adds the icing on the cake.
Alice is also Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, and Estonian. In fact, Alice currently ranks #1 in Sweden. The name day for Alice in Sweden is June 23. The name day for Alice in Estonia is September 16. [noted -ed]
Beautiful name.

It's beautiful. ♥.
Alice Sweet Alice (1976) is regarded as one of the greatest gothic horror movies of the 20th century.,_Sweet_Alice
So pretty!
I love this name for its timeless nature and its classic feel. My only “complaint” is that I can’t stop seeing it as “a lice”. If you don’t feel that way, by all means this is a gorgeous name.
Alice isn’t really an overused/common name. It’s not unique, but it’s not really popular like Emma or Olivia.
If only it wasn’t overused...
Alice is such a nice name! I’m considering this for a daughter one day. I’m surprised the popularity of this name isn’t higher. I hope it doesn’t increase too much like the names Olivia, Emma, Amelia, Ava, etc.
Alice is a lovely name, It’s WAY better than Allison. It’s easy to spell and pronounce, and it also ages well. That is unlike most names that parents are using nowadays. I’m considering this for if I ever have a daughter.
I love the name Alice! Well, I guess I’m biased as it’s my name, but I love the way it rolls off the tongue. I think it has a classic feel and a sweet but somewhat mature vibe to it, really fits my personality, but it really can fit anyone’s. My father often calls me by the Italian pronunciation as a nickname. Apart from a few “Alice in Wonderland” comments as a kid, I’ve always been grateful for my awesome name!
Means 5 star rating.
This is my name and I love it! I love literature and the whole gothic and dark side to the name. It gets shortened to Allie/Ali by people close which I like. I know very few Alices and not one of us is bland! My middle name's Lily which I think goes nicely.
What a gorgeous name!
Alice is a really cute and lovely name. :)
Alice or Alice Visconti (real name Carla Bissi, born 26th September 1954) is an Italian singer who started her carreer in 1971. In 1984 she and Franco Battiato represented Italy in the Eurovision Song Contest and they finally placed 5th, with 70 points. She has a very beautiful voice in my opinion.
Alice is a beautiful name.
Though it may seem common or bland at first, the name Alice, to me, is a soft and delicate name. It rolls off the tongue nicely and it seems very sweet. I know several girls called Alice.
Beautiful! I love the combo Alice Madalena :).
Alice is the name of a song from Lady Gaga's newest album, Chromatica.
Also used in Romania:
I love this name! It's cute, sweet, feminine strong, classic, timeless and ages well. Any girl would be lucky to be named Alice.
Also used in Estonia:
Alice Angel.
It’s fine but way too girly and I definitely prefer Allison. Better than Alyce though.
Alice is a gorgeous name.
Alice is a timeless name, both elegant and cute. Its meaning is lovely, and I love the reference to Alice in Wonderland!
This is also used in Germany! [noted -ed]
Alice Pieszecki is a main character on the television series The L Word (Showtime, 2004-2009) and its reboot, The L Word: Generation Q (Showtime, 2019-).
Sounds kinda bland and it's heavily associated with Alice in Wonderland.
I live in Brazil, and Alice is a very popular female given name here, that's a very beautiful, cute and nice name in my opinion too :)
My mum loves the name Alice but unfortunately couldn’t use it as our Surname is Spriggs which sounds (and often gets mistaken for Springs) Alice Springs is a place in Australia. Therefore I’m considering it for a middle name for my daughter as my mum will have it somewhere in the family.
I didn't know that Alice is considered old-fashioned in English speaking countries. Here in Italy it's very common since the '80s and it's still really popular (it was the 4th most common name for girls born in Italy in 2017) and generally it's considered a very sweet, fresh and cute name. Personally I love it, I associate it with Alice in Wonderland and I find the sound of the name really melodic.
My name is Alice, and I hate my name, it’s totally ordinary, I've got 3 other girls in my grade with the name Alice and 5 with my last name. I wish my name was more interesting like Juni or Amelié, but Alice? ew I hate it, and I lisp a lot and then when I say ”Alice” it sounds disgusting and same with my last name, (Nilsson) I lisp on both my first name and last name, what a disaster.
To the girl complaining about her name and the lisp thing - what an incredibly silly thing to be so withdrawn for. If you hate your name that badly I suggest changing it. The name is a very feminine and strong, noble, and royal name. Anyone would be lucky to have such a name and your mishap with the lisp is nobody else's problem. Take it up with who named you and quit sinking the name for everyone else. Your personal impression of the name is more of a personal complaint over having the name in which again, I suggest changing it. Frankly, the impression you gave me is that you don't deserve the name.
I adore this name. It has a classic and cute vibe, and it was not very common where I live, which I like. I think it works as a full name rather than it being short for "Alison". I tend to like shorter names, so this one is icing on the cake.
Classic name, sort of. I really like the Italian pronunciation, like 'ali-che'.
Whimsical, timeless, gorgeous, wow a perfect name for a baby girl all the way to grown woman. Reminds me of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (no surprise there) and there are no problems with that.
I love the name Alice! It’s cute as a full name or a nickname for Alison. I thought there was something masculine about the name, but it’s grown on me the right way, so I like it as a girl’s name.
Alice Evans is an English actress, known for playing Chloe in "102 Dalmatians" and Esther Mikaelson in "The Vampire Diaries" universe.

Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone was the daughter of Prince Leopold, Duke of Albany, the youngest son of Queen Victoria, and Princess Helena of Waldeck and Pyrmont.
Alice Angel from Bendy and the Ink Machine.
Although I prefer Adelaide, I don't hate the sound of Alice and think it's a very safe, classic name but also interesting, especially among common names today.
❤ Pretty name ❤.
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.
Alice is a Belgian French speech synthesiser produced by Acapela Group and an Italian speech synthesiser produced by Svox.
Alice Merton is a German singer.
The name Alice means nobility and is associated with royalty.
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.
Other spellings are Alyce, Allice, Allyce, Alise, and Allise.
Alice is a beautiful, classic name, and so feminine. I love it.
Alice Suki Waterhouse is a British actress, model and entrepreneur. Waterhouse was born in Hammersmith, London, England, and was raised in Chiswick, London, the daughter of Elizabeth, a cancer care nurse, and Norman Waterhouse, a plastic surgeon. She has a brother named Charlie, and two younger sisters Madeleine and Imogen, known as Immy, who is also a model.
I think it's a rather pretty name, it was my great-grandma's name as well. I'd probably give my daughter this name someday.
Alice Kim Cage was born in 1984 as Alice Yung Kim. She is an actress, known for Next and Grindhouse. She has been married to Nicolas Cage since July 30, 2004. They have one child.
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.
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!
I have also heard people named Alice being called the nickname A.
Alice Herzová-Sommerová was a Czech composer of Jewish German ancestry. She was also one of the oldest living people in the Czech Republic, she lived until the age of 110 years and 89 days. She was born in Prague, Czech Republic and she moved to Israel and then to London, England which is the location where she passed away.
The thing I like most about my name is its meaning about truthful nobility.
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.
According to ( the name Alice is ranked 1st place in Brazil in the year of 2015. In 2009 Alice was only 25th place and in the years of 2010-2011 Alice dramatically rose from 18th place all the way up to 7th place. Alícia the official Portuguese spelling of this name in 2015 only ranked 47th place and has reached 47th place 2 other times, in 2014 and 2012, the highest Alícia ranked was in 2011 at 43rd place. I can tell Alice is more trendy than Alícia.
I really love the name Alice because to me it means so many nice things. It also reminds me of books, which I love. That is because of Alice in Wonderland, which is truly amazing. The main character there is any girls dream. Well, she is to me. So yeah, I adore the name Alice.
I love the name Alice beautiful, royal and sweet! I would give my daughter this as a middle name so Beatrice Alice or Matilda Alice.
Pretty name but not very interesting.
Classy and cute.
Lissy could be used as a nickname.
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.
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.
This name is simply beautiful. Every positive adjective can be used to describe it. If you are considering this name for your little girl, some combos I have that you more than welcome to take a look at are:Alice Caroline
Alice Charlotte
Alice Veronica
Sarah Alice
Savannah Alice
Josephine Alice.
This name is so boring! Don't give your daughter this name. She will go through life with a dull and uninteresting personality. Totally over-rated name.
This has always been a favourite girl's name for me. Love how simple it is and how it sounds lovely both on children and adults.
Alice Roy is Nancy Drew in France.
I am 14 and my name is Alice and I love it. It is simple and quiet and pretty. I prefer my name not to be shortened but if it is it is always shortened to Al. I DESPISE the nickname Allie or Ally for Alice though. I like its literary connections as well, I love to read. I have met about three other Alice's in my life.
I love my name, not only because it is a classic and has its own film, but because it is short and cute. The only downside to it is I don't have any nicknames.
I think this name is okay, but I much prefer Alicia. Alice in Wonderland freaked me out when I was little, and it kind of left an impression of the name for me.
My best friend is Alice. She is kind and sweet and honest. She is so cool too.
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"! Overall, I like this name it is a pretty one but it does suggest that that person is delicate and I am NOT delicate!
In the urban dictionary, it says that Alice means little ray of Sunshine and is a person that can always put a smile on your face!
If I have a daughter I am going to name her this but, the Italian way. A unique way to say an older, commonly used name.
An easily forgettable name. A kid who is named this will have the problem of constantly reminding someone what their name is as this name is so boring! I'm so glad William and Kate did not use this name for their daughter.
I love this name! It will stand the test of time:) Strong, pretty.
A lovely classic name... strong, yet feminine.
Nice name, but very overdone on the fantasy side.
Snooze... a very boring name.
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.
I think this is an alright name. You could do worse. I don't think there's anything particularly wrong with it, it just doesn't really "pop" or stand out to me. A good thing is that you wouldn't be one of a million Alice's.
Horrible, boring name. Does not give the impression of a strong woman.
It's my name. I have always liked it. My mom was Mary Alice, I am Alice Marie. I think is is simple, elegant, noble, common, strange, mysterious, strong, dainty, and all around AWESOME. I NEVER did not like or appreciate my name... though I used to go around telling people my REAL name was Wilhemina Philomena Laura Potts... I thought Alice was to EASY for me... LOL.
Alice Nelson was the name of the comical middle-aged housekeeper on The Brady Bunch. She was portrayed by the late Ann B. Davis.
Alice is also getting really trendy in France. I like the name, though.
Awful name. It's an old lady name!
A slang term for LSD. A goth chick!
I absolutely adore this name. Sounds very classic, elegant and beautiful. (:
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!
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!
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.
'Putting Alice Back Together' is the title of a book by Carol Marinelli.
"Still Alice" is the title of a novel by Lisa Genova.
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.
Arlo Guthrie has a 10 minute long acoustic guitar song which he tells a very humorous story over entitled "Alice's Restaurant." When I hear Alice I think not "Alice in Wonderland" but rather... "You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant..."
The house keeper on the tv show "The Brady Bunch" was named Alice!
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.
Actress Alice Joyce (1890-1955).
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.
Alice Greczyn (b. 1986 in Walnut Creek, California) is an American model and actress.
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 (1843-1878) was the second daughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. She later became the mother of Alix (better known as Alexandra, last Czarina of Russia).
Alice Bunker Stockham was an American suffragist.
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.
This name is so striking... Seriously, you cannot get more gorgeous than this!
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.
Alice is the name of the male protagonist in the Japanese manga "Are you Alice?"
Alice Sebold (born September 6, 1963 in Madison, Wisconsin) is an American writer. She is best known for her novels "The Lovely Bones" and "Lucky".
Simple, but pretty girls name. I associate it with Alice in Wonderland.
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.
Alice Zenobia Richmond is the daughter of American actress/comedian Tina Fey.
Alice Aycock (born November 20, 1946) is an American sculptor.
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.
I don't know why, but this name makes me think of a girl who is sweet and mousy looking.
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!
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'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.
I really like this name. Unlike "Ichabod", it's a name with a good literary association. Plus, it sounds pretty and creative. I can imagine little Alice growing up to be an artist.
Probably my favourite girl name. Beautiful.
Alice is the name of a girl in the anime Pandora Hearts, which has many "Alice in Wonderland" references.
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.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned this yet but the main character in the Resident Evil movies is named Alice (played by Milla Jovovich).
Alice is one of my favorite girl names. It's so beautiful and sweet. It's a lovely name.
There are quite a few Vocaloid songs that involve Alice/Alice in Wonderland including "Alice" (Miku Hatsune), "Alice Human Sacrifice (Hitobashira Arisu)" (MEIKO, KAITO, Miku Hatsune, Rin and Len Kagamine), and "Goodbye to Alice (Arisu Ni Sayonara)" (GUMI).
The English pronunciation is so boring, but I think the French and Italian pronunciations sound WONDERFUL.
Alice is a cute name, I suppose. I prefer Adelaide though.
Simple and pretty, though overused in literature.
Hehe someone spelled my sister's name ALIS. Silly! It's ALICE! I like the Spanish version, Alicia.
I dunno. It's sweet and simple, but also kind of plain. Like really.:| I like the French pronunciation.
Alice Margatroid is a character of the Touhou Project.
Though not really famous per se, Alice is the name of the default fictional female character frequently mentioned on the TV Tropes Wiki.
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.
Not a really famous bearer, but on the sitcom Frasier, one of the characters, Roz Doyle, names her daughter Alice.
Alice was the name of the housekeeper on the Brady Bunch.
A sweet name for a little girl and a mature name for a grown woman. This name has always been a favorite due to Alice in Wonderland.
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.
Jane Campion, the film director, has a 14 year old daughter named Alice. Alice was part of the inspiration for Fanny Brawne's character in the movie "Bright Star", starring Abbie Cornish as Fanny.
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.
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.
In early 20th century, Alice was pronounced a-LEE-se in Sweden. My grandmother, born in 1917, is Lilly Alice.
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).
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. I appreciate that it's a nice name with a good meaning, but I would personally prefer a name without such an immediate impression.
Like the name Jane, this name seems to have a dark side. Not a bad thing, IMHO.
Alice Paul was an American suffragist and women's rights activist during the early 20th century.
Writing a book? Steer clear of Alice and its variants for any character, especially if they happen to be the 'strange' character.
I love this name! so sweet, delicate and yet strong. There's a character in the Rangers Apprentice series who spells it Alyss (lovely spelling) and my middle name is also the Latin variant: Alicia.
I love this name. It's very simple but classy. It sounds so sweet and innocent. Very old timey too. I don't think I've ever even met an Alice.
Alice is one of the few names that I think are completely perfect, in every way. Gorgeous, timeless, works on any type of person, and plenty of nicknames.
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 scared for the future of this name. It's been my favorite name since I was a little girl. I even named my BOY cat Alice when I was 3 :) I just really don't want it to become wildly popular because of Twilight. I love the books, but I won't want to name my daughter this someday if every other girl is named that.
I LOVE THIS NAME! It is very beautiful and very old-fashioned. However - thanks to the Twilight books - this name may become very popular very soon. But whatever happens to this name, its beauty will always remain! (:
I think Alice is a lovely name. I think it's really underrated, and looks good on a woman aged 90 and a girl aged 2, in other words, it fits any age. Great name. :)
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.
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.
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.
In Italy Alice has become fashionable lately. It ranks 10th of the most popular names in Italy in 2004 and 11th in 2006.
Alice in Wonderland is a famous bearer of the name.
One of my favorite names of all time. If I had a daughter I'd give her this name. If only the general association wasn't always Alice In Wonderland. There are many other things to name an Alice after. (On the contrary, however, Alice in Wonderland is one of my favorite books.)
Alice stands for
ExtraordinaryBeautiful name!
Alice Glass from electronic group Crystal Castles.
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 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.
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.
I love this name. It's very nice. However, I always seem to use it humorously.
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.
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.
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.

Cool simple name.
A notable bearer is American novelist and feminist Alice Walker, who wrote `The Color Purple`.
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.
Alice makes me think of
(1)a really old lady baking cookies
(2)Alice in Wonderland
(3)A girl who is mentally unstable
(4)Alice Cullen.
Dr. Alice Wilder is a famous bearer. She is an educational phsychologist and is included in the new book: In Their Shoes, written by Deborah Reber.
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. :)
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.)
I have two name books at home and one of them says that Alice is Old German and it means noble and the other one says that Alice is Greek and means truth.
Totally vomitable, and only suitable for pet cockroaches or gold-diggers on soap operas! BLEUGH! YUCK! VOMIT!
I know a variant of Alice that you don't have on your site:
You do have Alys, but Alyss is also a variant.
A famous bearer is singer Alice Konečná from the band "Le Monde".
I love the name Alice and wish that it would stay unpopular! It is so classic and elegant and old fashioned (which I love, modern names are such a bore!). My favorite character (other than Edward and Bella) in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Series is Alice which makes me love it even more.
In Italy this name is used and it is pronounced ah-lee'-cheyh. [noted -ed]
Alice is such a sweet, lovely name. Too bad it's a bit overused these days.
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.
This is not really a famous bearer of the name unless you are a Florida Gators Fan, but the two alligators names are Alice and Albert.
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!
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.
Alice Lee Roosevelt Longworth (1884-1980) was the only child of US President Theodore Roosevelt and his first wife Alice Hathaway Lee. She was called "Princess Alice" and "The other Washington Monument" by the public.
I love the name Alice! It's good for girls and boys, but I personally like it on guys WAY better!
Too plain for me, I much prefer Adelaide! But it isn't very popular, which is nice.
This is my cousin's name, and she doesn't like it at all. She goes by Ally most of the time, but I like Alice better.
Alice is a wonderful name that will age so well with the young woman who bears it.
This is my middle name, and I don't like it at all. I'm planning to change it, once I find good names to replace both it and my first name with.
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.
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.
Pronounced as "Ah-lee-tse".
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.
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!
I think this name is pretty. It is not overused which is nice. At the same time, though, I don't think I'll name my daughter this.
Alice B. Toklas was the life partner of writer Gertrude Stein.
I love this name! It's timeless!
A simple, classic, and pretty name.
At first I didn't like this name, but it's grown on me. I would never use it because of how popular it is, though.
There are other variations of this name, like Alaïs (one of the main characters of Kate Mosse's "Labyrinth") and Alaíde (similar to Alaïs, but used in Brazil).
Love this name. It is classic and has a good sound to it. If I have a daughter she will be named Alice.
Allis is an alternative spelling, which enjoyed some popularity in Sweden.
Alice Longbottom is a character from Harry Potter-series. She is wife of Frank Longbottom and mother of Neville. She was tortured by Bellatrix Lestrange and some other death eaters and now she lays in St. Mungo.
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 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
Simple and sweet. This name will make an appearance when I have children, I'm sure.
Really nice-sounding name, and it's better that it is more associated with Wonderland than with drugs.
Alice Sebold is the author of "The Lovely Bones" and "Lucky."
I think it is quite overused, I don't like it that much.
Main character Dr. Alice Tanner is from The Labyrinth by Kate Mosse.
There is a famous Irish witch called Alice Kytler.
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.
Alice Cooper has managed to make the name Alice scary.
Alice Cullen is a major character in Twilight by Stephenie Meyer.
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.
This name is so classic and sweet. It can work on a girly girl or a more "darker" girl.
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".
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!
The Italian variant of "Alice" is the name "Alice", which is pronounced [aliche], where the stress is on the "i".
The name of Tina Fey's daughter.
The band Alice In Chains, and Milla Jovovich's character from the Resident Evil movies and video games, is a famous bearer.
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!
I have a friend called Alice in France and I myself and a few other friends of mine give her the nickname, 'Ally', or sometimes like a code name, we call her 'Ice.' I hope that helps!I definitely think Alice is a beautiful name!
Don't forget Alice Cooper.
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.
Alice is the name of the main character in a series of books by Phyllis Reynold Naylor, starting with "The Agony of Alice." It's also the name of the main character of a book called "Alice, I Think".
There's this song that I know and it goes :"Who the F*** is Alice?" I love that song.
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.
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.
Alice comes from the Greek word "alikè", meanining "daughter of the sea".
Alice was the name of the character played by Natalie Portman in the movie "Closer."
Used in the film "Alice doesn't live here anymore", the Woody Allen film simply called "Alice", the song "Living next door to Alice" by Smokie, the album "Alice" by Tom Waits and the song "Alice" by The Sisters of Mercy.
Alice Babs is a famous Swedish singer of swing music.
In Slovak, the spelling is 'Alica'. [noted -ed]
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.
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.
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).
Alice is a short, sweet and feminine name, I love it.
I love it, I'm naming my daughter that name. It's not very popular, but very beautiful. Perfect.
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 also comes from Greek origins meaning truth.
Alice in Chains ... Alice in Wonderland ... both very good.
Alice is a great, great name, and it has the word ice in it!
Alice is such a sweet and pretty name, I quite like it.
The name of the main character of a book dealing with drug abuse, "Go Ask Alice".
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! :)
Also an ancient Greek name, Latin form of Alike(f), Alikos(m) or Alyke(f), Alykos(m). Alykos was a hero from Megara.
In Greece, "Aliki" is the equivalent of "Alice".
