Mitzi Origin and Meaning

The name Mitzi is a girl's name of German origin meaning "bitter".
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. Today, Mitzi is one of those vintage baby names still stuck in an earlier era, for better or worse.
