"My name is Aleta. I usually have to correct people on the pronunciation. I like having a different name, it has made me feel unique and special. My mother named me after Queen Aleta from Prince Valiant, although few people know what your talking about. Also she said she had a girlfriend who was a ballerina named Aleta and that's what I tell everyone, although I think my mom wanted me to be the ballerina! I've always tried to find a nickname but none ever stick. I had friends with unique names too so it was ok growing up with it." Oct. 17, 2017:
"Hi, my name is Aleta. Growing up, I did not like it much. Either people could not remember it or it was mispronounced. Now that I am older and see what the future generations are naming their children, I'll take Aleta any day." Jun. 9, 2017:
"I, like many, was named after "Princess Aleta" of the comic strip "Prince Valiant". A shy child, I didn't like having a name that stood out. Classmates often treated me unfairly , believing my unique name made me "stuck up". It was only as an adult that I learned I was pretty and intelligent- the real reason classmates often did not include me. As a 54 year old woman I could not be prouder of my beautiful name."

"Aleta is my middle name. I was named after my great-aunt. I have always loved it and received compliments on it from people who see it on my license and ask me to pronounce it. I think it's pretty, feminine and unique." Sep. 18, 2013:
"My name is Aleta. My mother was a fan of Hal Foster's art work in the Prince Valiant comic strip. However, I have blue eyes and had dark brown hair. Many folks have mispronounced my name, and for many years it irked me greatly. Now that I'm older, I take pride in my very unusual name. It is pronounced uh-lee-tuh." Dec. 4, 2010:
"My name is Aleta. I love my name. It doesn't should old fashioned many people love my name. But what is hard is not many people have that name so it is hard finding people the same name as mine. It means truthful one in Greek. I think in Hebrew it means little winged one with means little angel. I consider myself both. I think I am a wonderful cheerful person who happens to believe in Jesus Christ. I can't seem to deceive anyone either." Jan. 16, 2008:

"My name is Aleta. I was born in 1960 when the Prince Valiant comic strip was popular and I was named after Queen Aleta, the queen of the Misty Isles. I knew of one other Aleta when I was a child, I have met another Aleta as an adult. When I lived in the Florida Keys 35 years ago I swam with a dolphin which was named Aleta and that dolphin had a baby named Misty. I always thought that was really fun.
As a child I did not like my name since I was always having to pronounce it for people. I like it now, although I have no idea what else my name could be. My name is pronounced uh-lee-ta." Mar. 2, 2020:
