"Sigita" and its masculine form "Sigitas" are Lithuanian names. Lithuania is a country on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea. There is some speculation as to the name's origin: possibly Old High German (Sigismund), Indian (Sangita) or Latin ("sagitta" for arrow).
Variations of "Sigita" include "Siga" and the diminutive "Sigutė", as in the refrain, "Eik Sigute, eik dukrele," from a popular Lithuanian folktale.
