LANGUAGE FAMILY:

ORIGIN:
germanic  /  old french 
NAME ROOT:
*AþALAZ *HAIDUZ > ADALHAID / ADALHAIDIS > AALIS
MEANING:
This is a feminine given name used in different countries. It is a form of the Middle French female name “Alis” (Old French and Norman French: Aalis and Aliz). The modern form Alice and its variation represents the short form of “Adelais”, which is derived from the Germanic name Adalhaid / Adalhaidis, composed of two elements: “*aþalaz” (noble, nobleman, aristocratic, eminent, glorious, excellent) plus “*haiduz” (kind, sort, appearance, personality, character, manner, way). The name Alis became very common in France in the twelfth century. 1) Princess Alice of the United Kingdom (1843–1878) was the third child and second daughter of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. Alice was the first of Queen Victoria's nine children to die, and one of three to be outlived by their mother, who died in 1901. 2) Alicja Jadwiga Kotowska (1899–1939) was a Polish nun, head of the Resurrectionist convent in Wejherowo between 1934 and 1939, and a blessed of the Roman Catholic Church and a martyr killed by the German Nazis in 1939 in the Mass murders in Piaśnica. 3) Princess Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen was the queen consort of the United Kingdom and of Hanover as spouse of William IV of the United Kingdom. Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia, is named after her. The name is first recorded in Scotland in the 12th century. It was popular until the early 19th century and, spelled Allison, was the 45th most common name given to baby girls in the United States in 2005.
