Origin of the name Alicia:

Variant of Alice, a name that has evolved through a series of variants of the Germanic Adalheidis, a compound name composed of the elements adal (noble, nobility) and heid (kind, sort): hence, "noble one." Adalheidis was contracted to Adalheid, which the French changed to Adelaide, then contracted to Adaliz, and contracted yet again to Aaliz, Alia, and Alix.

This is my name and I quite like it... Although most people spell my name like Alisha, Alysha, Alesha, Alicia, Elesha or Elysha which is annoying, but you learn to live with it.

My name is Elisha Joy, and I've never met anyone with the same name as me.
