Subject: The female name Aleka

I read about the name Aleka (pronounced with a short "e") on the internet. The mother said it was Greek and means "strength". But we all know that name meanings may be invented. So is this true?

Or is Aleka a form of the Greek Alexandra, Alexa or the Greek Aliki (not in the BtN database)?
