I love this name. It is not only a pretty, feminine name, but it’s also not very popular, which is nice. I would definitely consider naming my daughter Aleah. I like it better with an “h” at the end of it. It makes the spelling of the name more unique.

It's a variant of Aliyah, which is from Arabic origin! And it's pronounced AH-LEE-AH not UL-LEE-AH or something else!

Alea is becoming more and more popular in Germany as well where it is associated with the popular name "Lea". In German it's pronounced "ah-LEH-ah".

Alea is a beautiful name. I know only one girl named Alea, and I think it's neat that it is an uncommon/simple name that sounds so pretty.

Alea is the kind of name anyone can hear and say "that's a pretty name!". And usually, with a pretty name, comes a pretty face.

Alea seems like the kind of name for a deep thinking, uniquely beautiful, smart, philosophical kind of girl. Not a ditzy person that likes the color pink and fluffy kitty cats. Someone classy, someone too clever for their own good that needs someone to watch out for them. A true seeker. And no, this isn't my name, but I sometimes wish it were. It can be cute, but very mature. I love it.
