Gender: F Meaning of Mitzi: "bitter" Origin of Mitzi: German, diminutive of Maria

Mitzi is a spunky German nickname name that might appeal to parents drawn to the genre of lively vintage chorus girl names that proliferated in 1930's musicals. Lively entertainer Mitzi Gaynor--who was originally named Francesca Marlene de Czani von Gerber--made the name notable in mid-century America.

You may be surprised to know that Mitzi was on the Top 1000 list through 1979, as high as Number 420 in 1955.
