Meaning:Of Beatrice; Voyager; Blessed; Of Patricia; Noble, patrician
Tris is a short form for baby girls tied to the Latin names Beatrice and Patricia. Fans of the Divergent series will ardently argue it comes from the first name, meaning "voyager" or "blessed." In the books, Tris is a badass heroine who chooses the name upon initiation to the bravest faction, Dauntless. She's also been compared to Katniss of The Hunger Games for fiercely protecting her family and, of course, kicking butts! Beyond apocalyptic fiction, this name also means "noble” and "patrician," after the classic choice Patricia.
