fem. lit. "document girl"
formed from Latin "litera" and French "fille"
litera: from littera/litera "letter". Latin littera also meant "a writing, document, record," and in plural litteræ "a letter, epistle," a sense first attested in English early 13c., replacing Old English ærendgewrit, lit. "errand-writing." The Latin plural also meant "literature, books," and figuratively "learning, liberal education, schooling".
fille: (daughter, girl): From Old French, from Latin fīlia.
