"My name is ALETHA, I'm named after my grandmother, Aletha Gilkerson Wells.I wouldn't want a different name ! TRUTH is of great value to me.Yes the never ending mispronouncing(haha, and spelling), which often gives me the chance to share this names meaning and history.

"This was my great aunt's name. She was called "Lee" by most people, and my middle name is "Lee" after her. When I found out her real name I thought it would be cool to name my daughter Aletha. That way, in a roundabout way, I was giving my daughter a name with family history and a connection to me. My first name is so unique I've only ever met one other person with it (Dacia), so I'd prefer giving my child an uncommon name as well." Jul. 27, 2013:
"It is my name as well :) I was named for a childhood friend of my mothers who died when they were children.
