Sum up all of your joyful feelings towards baby with this cute American girl's name. Lettie, a diminutive of the more stately Letitia, means "joy, gladness." Thanks to the ever-popular -ie ending, it comes with a built-in dose of sweetness. Lettie can also have Greek roots, as it's a shortened form of the names Aleta, meaning "footloose," and Alethea, which means "verity, truth" and is the name of the Greek goddess of truth.
