Someone once asked me if Alice was short for Allison.... I didn't know what to say! They are two totally dif. names!

01/14/2024 00:00:00

Hey my Middle name is alice and i just love my name because i was named after my papas mom an d i always get omg your alice in the wonderland so i just shrug it off and say i'll die my hair blonde then(I'm a brunette).

01/14/2024 00:00:00

I Hav just named my second child Alice ❀️ Her middle name is Joan after my partners grandmother'so she will Hav the option of being called AJ when she's older :) I think It's a beautiful soft name for the tiny little girl she is ❀️❀️❀️

01/14/2024 00:00:00

Love this delicate, elegant name! Its connection to Wonderland and childhood fantasy is just a bonus.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

This is so cool! My name is Kaela Mackenzie, Kaela is my first name and I love it! Although it does get annoying when people spell it k-e-a-l-a! I'm 97% Irish so my parents thought it was appropriate to give me a name with Irish spelling, and also kaela means katherine in gaelic. I have actually met someone named kaela before in my town who goes to my local high school so I knew I wasn't the only one but not this many!-Kaela Mackenzie

my name is alice and i think that this name gets a bad rep for being old stingy people when really it is a cool, classic, and chic name.

01/14/2024 00:00:00

My name is Alice, and I used to hate it when I was younger because it was so unusual and an "old lady name." Now that I'm an adult, I love it. I haven't met anyone with my name that is anywhere around my age (34). Also, i've dressed up as Alice in Wonderland on multiple Halloweens. Although it is irritating to constantly be called Alison when people first meet me.

01/02/2024 03:31:24

I have hated my name most of my life. I have always insisted on being called Al. But now that I am getting older I don't mind It'so much. It's the kind of name you have to grow into.

12/26/2023 20:10:14

My name is Alice, and I'm surprised by how many people view it as an old fashioned name. It has never been said to me, that I can remember. I think it must be a US thing, I live in England and here while it is not a common name thse days, I don't think it has the'same image. Alice in Wonderland has forever'sealed it as a young girls name I think.

12/07/2023 05:39:16

I'm an Alice and when I think about my name I can't beli've I'm lucky enough to have it. I'm 37 and there are few Alice's close to my age. I like the uniqueness of it as well as the timeless, classic nature of it. There are many nicknames that can be given with the name. Most call me Alice but a few close to me call me Al or Big Al (I'm not very big). It's fun.

11/06/2023 01:42:26

My name is Alice and at first i hated it, i thought it was really boring and people constantly calling me "Alice in Wonderland" was less than amusing!! But i've grown to like it (I'm now 16), and i don't get called it all the time, people shorten it to Allie or Ace, which is fine, so I'm quite happy with the name!

09/12/2023 01:15:52

Alice is my middle name.That was my Memere's name. It's uncommon , but I do like it . It's a bit old fashion, but a classic.

08/23/2023 14:16:30

This name reminds me of Anastasia Krupnik of Lois Lowry's series of books--which is a very positive association, as that Anastasia is quirky, spunky and smart. Anastasia is also a beautiful, dignified name that, as othe's have mentioned, really stands out in a crowd.

I named my daughter Alice in 2018. At that time, the name wasn't trendy and I occasionally got "oh, haven't heard for a while" kind of comment. Now what, only three years later, It's in the top 100 in many states. I hope It's not getting too trendy because I want my daughter has a unique name. In 2014, It's ranked 94 in USA, 76 in California, 58 in Washington, 49 in Oregon, 95 in Florida, 84 in Connecticut, 60 in Massachusetts.......It's getting momentum!

08/11/2023 18:57:58

My name is Alice. I think it is a great traditional name. I dont have a nickname, but people do often call me allison or ask me if Alice is short for allison (its not). I love my name and dont mind the association often made to "Alice in Wonderland"!

08/09/2023 11:07:38

My name is Alice but when I'meet new people they think it is supposed to be spelt Aolis. It looks like Aoli and btw, im not a food dressing. My name'suits me very well.

06/04/2023 14:17:56

We just named our daughter Caleigh (callie). I worry that people will pronounce it Kay-lee, but I figure we can nickname her Cali (shortened) if that happens.

04/24/2023 08:46:30

It's OK, seriously. I would like it a lot 'cept now it reminds me of Alice in Wonderland (HATE that). But It's my name'so I'll just learn to shrug it off. =/

04/23/2023 14:50:52

My middle name is Alyse. It Isn't pronounced like Alice, but it is Alice in French. I LOVE my middle name! Whitney Alyse!!

04/21/2023 01:07:52

My name is Alice, so is my mother's and was my grandmother's. I love it, I'm not a big fan of Alice in Wonderland but I never got annoyed by the references. I do enjoy it when people start singing "Alice's Restaurant" though :)

04/13/2023 05:37:48

My name is Alice and It's uncanny how well my name fits. As far as Alice in Wonderland is concerned, It's like Carrol was basing it on me. Alice is a whimsical yet sophisticated name. I used to hate it cos It'sounded really old and stuffy and there were 3 other people in my class at school called Alice (born 87) but it gave me an awesome theme for my 21st - Alice in Wonderland of cause!

04/02/2023 23:03:26

Alice is my daughter's name, and obviously I love it or I wouldn't have named her that. Many people, though, upon learning her name, wrinkle their noses and say, "You named a baby *ALICE*❀️❀️❀️" I wouldn't change it for the world, it matches her character- she has an old soul in her 4 year old spirit.

03/28/2023 22:51:24

i named my daughter Alice, Alice Marie :) i always get compliments. on how fancy It'sounds. i just love how everyone says oh like "Alice in the Wonderland" and im like EXACTLY, because i just loved how the book and cartoon movie looked- colorful, imaginative, and DIFFERENT. they're aren't many Alices now, which is best, because It's unique. she's 1 year old now, i hope she likes it when she's older.

01/13/2023 13:46:32

I like this name because our beloved cat was named Alice. We had her for almost 20 years. She was a stray so we began calling her Alley Cat but that quickly became Alice somehow. I have also met wonderful people with this name--Alices always seem friendly.

01/01/2023 01:25:16

my name is alice, and i find it VERY offensive that you dont have any comments for it cuz it is a amazio

12/27/2022 00:20:20

Now that I'm an adult, I love being named Alice. (When I was a kid, I hated having such an unusual name.) I do get called Alison a LOT because people can't beli've that anyone would just be named Alice. I hated it in Spanish classes when my teache's would always call me Alicia. (Mi nombre es Alice!) I like my name just the way it is, although my husband sometimes calls me Ali as an endearment, and that's okay.

11/11/2022 23:42:34

My name is Alice and I am 11 years old!!!. I was named after my great-grandmother.

10/25/2022 19:05:22

My name is Alice. I think people expect to see an old woman get up when I'm called in a waiting room. Starbucks employee tend to write "Alex" on the cup, instead, probably because they don't meet too many young girls with the name. Still I like it, I'm usually the only one & I love a good classic.

09/29/2022 05:03:24

I know a girl called 'Aleece' which is pronounced like uh-lease. Alot of people call her Alice though and I think both names are pretty!

09/10/2022 14:56:00
