Alathea is as lyrical and whimsical as it gets. This feminine moniker can be traced back to the Greek word for “truth.” Since Verity means the same, feel free to use them interchangeably. One of the moniker’s more famous bearers is Baroness Alethea Howard, a renowned patron and art collector, and one of England’s first published female scientists. Just goes to show that with a name like Alathea, baby will feel encouraged to ask questions, stay curious, and pursue truth.
