  • "My name is Althea and was born in 1960. My father was the one who chose my name and I have always loved it for its uniqueness. Some have simply called me Thea but most people use my full name. During my lifetime so far I have only ever met two other women with the same name. I wouldn't give it up for anything." Jul. 24, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "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: Report as inappropriate
