My name is Aretha, I am a white woman and I am very proud of my name. The meaning of the name is virtuous, excellent and beauty.

This name might be a short form of Margaretha, just like the name Retha (which is also in the main database).

Arete was also Queen of the Pheaecians in the Odyssey, the mother of princess Nausica, who rescued Odysseus when he was near death and helped him return home.
