Pricila is a girl’s name of Portuguese origin, meaning “ancient” or “venerable.” Just as its translations suggest, Pricila’s legacy dawned long ago. Pricila comes from the Latin name Priscilla, borne in biblical times by a bosom friend and follower of Paul the Apostle, who appears most famously in the Christian New Testament. It also became a common name for the Puritans in the 16th century and rose to popularity again about three centuries later. A beautiful take on a timeless classic, Pricila might be your answered prayer.
