Letitia is a feminine given name derived from a Latin term laetitia meaning "joy, happiness." It appeared in the form "Lettice" in medieval England and in "Leticia" as a synonym for "happiness" in ancient Spanish, but they are rarely used today. In older versions of the program Microsoft Word, the word "Lettice" was automatically corrected into "happiness".
