Aristea -- AH riss TAY ah or AIR riss TAY ah
Related to the names Aristide and Aristides
Means "the best"
----------------------------------------------

I really like this one. I would use Tea (TAY ah) as a nickname. My only concern would be the pronunciation issues. What do you think of it? and how would you pronounce it on first sight?

On first sight, I would probably pronouce it like "ah-riss-tee-ah."
The name itself is NMS, but I appreciate the uniqueness of it.

I would pronounce it "air-iss-tee-ah"

I like it though, and I really like Tea as a nickname, not only for this name but in general too. I'd just be worried that everyone would mispronounce it.

I think i'd say it Ah-riss-tee-ah... While I don't hate it, I don't love it either, but I think it's a name that'd grow on me

I'd probably say ah-riss-tee-ah as well. I do like the name though.

I like it pronounced Air-iss-TAY-uh. But i'd worry it'd get mispronounced.

I don't like it. I think it would get misspelled and mispronounced all the time.

I'd say "AH riss TAY ah" I love Tea as a nickname, but haven't found a full name with this nickname that I'm in love with yet. I do think that it would be mispronounced, which is unfortunate because it is pretty!

Thanks for the replies!

I have been thinking about this name all weekend and really love it more and more. I tend to pronounce it as AIRihSTAYah. Aris is looking more and more attractive as a nickname too.

My fav combo at the moment is Aristea Lenore I haven't run it by my dh yet because I don't want him shooting it down quite yet , but everyone else I have spoken it aloud to, thinks it's very pretty. I'll have to see if I still like it weeks from now or if this is a passing infatuation.

I was also thinking of Aristeia, Aristaia, and Aristaea as possible spellings.
