Gender: Female Meaning of Alicia: "noble" Origin of Alicia: Spanish variation of Alice Alicia's Popularity in 2017: #359

The name Alicia is a girl's name of Spanish origin meaning "noble". Alicia is ranked #359 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Feminine Girl Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Quick Question Thread?!".

From the experts:

Alicia was more popular than its mother name for several years, adding a lacy, more balletic feel to the original. But their fortunes have reversed in recent years, with Alicia sinking down to its lowest rating since World War 2 while Alice has soared to the Top 100. Taken for its sound alone, Alicia is a lovely, feminine name, but parents should be aware that its innumerable phonetic versions, such as Alisha and Alysha, have robbed it of some of its character.

Two high-profile Alicias are actress Silverstone and soul singer Keys; in the past there were ballerina Markova and the great Spanish classical pianist de Larrocha. Alicia is the birth name of Jodie Foster, and the singer known as Pink was originally Alecia. Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, who won an Oscar for her role in The Danish Girl, pronounces her first name "ah-LISS-ee-ah."
