The name Perdita is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "lost". Perdita and is often added to lists like Posh Baby Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Baby Name SCRABBLE".
From the experts:
A Shakespearean invention for an abandoned baby in The Winter's Tale, Perdita's sense of loss has always been off-putting to parents. But her image was somewhat resuscitated by its association with the appealing canine character in Disney's One Hundred and One Dalmations.
