Alice

Alice is a feminine given name used primarily in English and French. It is a feminized form of the Old French female name Alis (older Alais), short form of Adelais, which is derivation from the Germanic name Adalhaidis (see Adelaide), from the Proto-Germanic words *aþala-, meaning “noble” and *haiþjō-, meaning “heath(land), heather” or *haidu-, meaning “appearance; kind” (compare German Adel “nobility”, edel “noble”, nominalizing suffix -heit “-hood”), hence “of noble character or rank, of nobility”. Alaïs is the Old French form of the name; Alys of Vexin was also known as Alaïs.
