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.
