Meaning:noble, exalted
When you compare Alicia with its predecessor Alice, the differences are striking. While both have the identical meaning (“noble, exalted”), Alice is warm, strong and suited to parents who want to give their daughters a cool retro name. Alicia, on the other hand, is gentle and delicate with more modern flavor. Alice’s sharp edges melt away when you change the ending to “–cia.” Comparisons aside, Alicia represents strong, determined women too, namely singer Alicia Keys and actress Alicia Silverstone.
