Meaning & Origins

From Greek mythology. Although sometimes considered to be a contracted form of Alethea, it is actually a quite distinct name (Greek Althaia) of uncertain origin. It was borne in classical legend by the mother of Meleager, who was given a brand plucked from the fire at the instant of her son's birth, with the promise that his life would last as long as the brand did; some twenty years later she destroyed it in a fit of pique. The name was revived by the 17th‐century poet Richard Lovelace as a poetic pseudonym for his beloved.

English: variant of Black 1, meaning ‘swarthy’ or ‘dark-haired’, from a byform of the Old English adjective blæc, blac ‘black’, with change of vowel length.
