Female variation of Atticus, Greek

Attica Origin and Meaning

The name Attica is a girl's name meaning "from Attica".
Attica has not taken off as a baby name for girls the way Atticus has for boys partly because it's the name of an infamous prison in upstate New York where an deadly riot took place in 1971. Only six baby girls were named Attica in the US in 2018, but half a century after the riots and with the rise of brother name Atticus, that well could change.

Attica Locke is a prize-winning American novelist. Attica was the region of Ancient Greece that included Athens.
