Weird spelling. Nothing much too say about this name. Laetitia, Leticia, and Letizia are better.
I have a different spelling and I go by none of the given nick names. Leatitia and they call me Tish. I absolutely love my name. I enjoy the eccentric behavior the name has afforded me.
The reason I dislike this name is because of the "Titty" nickname, but I guess Letty could be an alternative choice as well. But overall I just don't like it.
Cute and sweet. Love Letty as a nickname.
This is a really happy sounding name.
The tit bit stands out to me but this name is cool.
It's a beautiful name that I think should be used much more often than it already is.
This is my name. It's pronounced leh-tih-sha. Not la-tee-sha or (the worst I've heard) le-ti-tia. The I is like the I in bit not like a golf tee. The le at the beginning seems to be the most difficult for Americans to get right. They always want to make it an a sound rather than an eh sound.

I like it, but I've gone by Lettie my whole life. I appreciate having a grown up sounding name to trot out in formal situations.
It's somewhat nice.
Used to be shortened to Titty, however this has (obviously) fallen out of use...
In 2018, 46 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Letitia who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 2151st most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
My name is Leticia and is pronounced like Letitia. I have had a love/hate relationship with it. People pronounce it wrong often or they assume I am African American before meeting me. I’m not. I’m white as snow. Not that it matters but it’s a funny assumption I think. Famous writer Neil Gaiman (Coraline, Stardust, the Graveyard Book) uses this name in 3 different novels. When asked why he uses it so often he told me simply that he thinks it’s a beautiful name. These things help me heal my childhood disappointment of never finding my name on key chains, coffee mugs or tiny license plates in stores :)
I don't like the pronunciation of Letitia, though I am always hesitant to change how I say a name. In my eyes, it looks like "leh-tiss-ee-yuh", which I personally really like.
My name is Letitia and I didn't like it at first, but now I am like, it's classy and you change your nickname how you want it. I have so many nicknames. I recently started liking Lettie. My family that I grow up with call me TEESH and I use Tish or Tisha. In school they used to mess my name up so bad. If I have another daughter I will give her my name but use Leticia.
My name is Letitia and I love it cause it gets announced really properly like Le-ti-shia.
I don't like this name one bit! It sounds awfully trashy and low class to me.
This is a rather nice name, if pronounced le-tish-uh, but I really don't like the nickname Titty, like one of the girls in "Swallows and Amazons"! :( Although I do like the nickname Letty, as in Letty Lind, the late 19th-Century English actress. :)
This name is traditionally pronounced "le-TISH-ə", though apparently there is a ghasty alternative pronunciation going around in the form of "le-TEESH-ə".
My name is Leticia, it is not an unusual name here in Brazil, but these days there aren't many Leticias, at least I only met a couple. Usually it is written Letícia and pronounced Le-ti-sia.
So that's where all the 'Lettices' come from.
In other languages than English, this is probably a pretty and sophisticated name, even if somewhat overrated.
I like this name and the meaning of this name. It's sounds so gracious.
Tish is a nice nickname.
Letitia is the name of the old lady in The Vicar of Dibley.
First Lady Letitia Christian Tyler was the first First Lady to die in the White House.
I have heard this name pronounced LOO-TISH-a and li-TISH-a (in New Zealand).
One of my coworkers is named Letitia. I haven't heard of it until I met her. I think it's a cool name!
Letitia Van Allen is a character in Gore Vidal's novel "Myra Breckinridge." When Mae West played the role in the movie, she insisted that the character's name be changed to "Leticia"! (P.S.: Avoid the movie; it's a real stinkeroo.)
I'm a Napoleon fan (I know that it is funny), and Napoleon's mum's name was Letitia Ramolini (before she got married to Carlo Bounaparte).
Letitia is being used again in the last 10 years in New Zealand. Also spelt Latisha.
