Gender: F Origin of Lettice: English variation of Letitia Meaning of Letitia: Latin, "joy, gladness"

Lettice is still occasionally heard in upper-class British families, but we fear it would cause too much salad-green teasing to be considered in the U.S. Calling your little Lettice Lettie could help make the name more user-friendly, or go all the way to the original Letitia.
