Does anyone else have the nickname Ea?" May. 17, 2015:
"I'm an Althea born in 1978 and I love my name! Who wouldn't want to be a Greek Goddess? I use Thea as a nickname. People sometimes have a little trouble with Althea because they've never heard it, but it's easy to remember once they do. I'm white and I find Althea is a more common name among African-American women, possibly because of Althea Gibson's notoriety." Nov. 14, 2010:
"My husband wanted to name our daughter Althea. She's 6 now, and I haven't met another Althea in person. People sometimes think it's Aletha or Ophelia or Athena. I think it's a beautiful, timeless name--and it means 'healer' in Greek. I submitted her pic from the first day of school." Oct. 2, 2009:
