Originally a variant of Adelaide, representing an Old French spelling of a reduced form of Germanic Adalheidis. Alice and Adelaide were already regarded as distinct names in English during the medieval period. Alice enjoyed a surge of popularity in the 19th century and periods of favour ever since. It was the name of the central character of Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking Glass (1872), who was based on his child friend Alice Liddell, daughter of the Dean of Christ Church, Oxford.
