Gender: Female Origin of Lucretia: Latin, female form of Lucretius, meaning unknown

Lucretia Origin and Meaning

The name Lucretia is a girl's name of Latin origin.

A pretty and plausible Latin name that's gotten a bad rap through the years via a link to Lucrezia Borgia, who, though long considered a demon poisoner, was actually a patron of learning and the arts.

Lucretia is a U.S. First Lady name, borne by the wife of President James A. Garfield; a worthy namesake is Lucretia Mott, a Quaker abolitionist, and peace and women's rights advocate.

In the Harry Potter saga, Lucretia Black Prewett is a pure-blood witch.

I love classical names. This is beautiful. It sounds lovely. Flowing, graceful. I also love phoebe, cassandra, clodia, Julia, lavinia., Anna, rhea. I'm doing a classics degree. The Romans had great names. Not sure hortensia would work now though. Or Dido.
