"My name is Alethea. I?ve gotten ?Althea?, ?Athena (which I don?t mind)? ?Olivia? ?aletea?. It annoys me that people won?t take a second to learn it, because it?s not that hard. But I don?t mind when people call me Athena, I take that as a complememt. But other times, it?s annoying. I?ve never met another Alethea and i?d Love to meet another one." Sep. 4, 2021:
"I have never met anyone else with my name and I love it. It is Greek and means truth. My godmother named me. People often mispronounce it, which I find puzzling because it is pronounced the way it is spelled. I often get called Althea, Athena or Alicia and I always correct them. My closest friends call me Lee or LeeLee. My mother hates that. She always calls me by my full name and reminds me that I am special." Mar. 23, 2021:
"It?s so weird to see other people named Alethea. Once, on retreat, the guide was asking for our names and when I told him mine he said that it was a name of a goddess and that made me feel nice. Other people often ask me why my parents didn?t just name me Althea and I?d agree and say that it?s kinda weird but I actually really like my name. I just ask most people to call me Thea for simplicity?s sake though." Dec. 2, 2019:
"My name is alethea and I always thought I was the ONLY alethea but then I saw this website... anyway Im usually called leah for short but it gets frustrating when people say althea and forget the e but the positive part is that people always say my name is so pretty and rare so Im thankful for that!"

"I love my name, and I've never met another Alethea. I'm used to being called "Alicia", " Althea", "Athena", " Oliva", "Ethia" and a million other mispronunciations. Oh well. To tell you the TRUTH, I wouldn't want any other name." Aug. 1, 2016:
"I could have written the same comment as the Alethea above. It's totally phonetic, but I've been called Althea a thousand times, not to mention Alicia, Athena, or just people just stop and stare at it and I have to help them. On the positive: the meaning is truth. I've grown into my name. AS a kid I longed to have a simpler name (everyone was a Debbie or a Susan then, it seems). And i do think it has a beautiful sound."

"This is a very beautiful name and I am surprised it is not more widely used." Aug. 2, 2011:

"Hi my name is also Alethea I love my name and also get called all those names that have been mentioned and also have to correct people when they mispronounced my name. I was amazed when I read this that there are so many people named Alethea in the world. I have never meet another Alethea in person.

"I get a lot of compliments but sometimes I get sick of having it misspelled, mispronounced, and misinterpreted, or of people being too lazy to take a moment to learn it rather than fudging it every time they see me, for years on end. How many times do I have to correct someone before it sticks? It's not THAT hard a name. Sometimes I wish I'd just been named "Ruth" after my grandmother." Mar. 11, 2008:
