Priscilla – Scary Mommy

Priscilla

This is a Roman diminutive of Prisca, the feminine form of Priscus, which is a Roman family name that means "ancient" in Latin. Parenting sure makes us feel ancient, or at least it ages us quickly, so this name is fitting.

Prissy, Prissie.

Priscilla Presley; Brazilian model Priscilla Meirelles; actress Priscilla Barnes of Three’s Company; Priscilla Chan, wife of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

Fun fact:

This name has been around for centuries, peaked in the 1930s, and then saw a resurgence in the 70s after a little-known musician named Elvis married his beloved Priscilla.
