Finally someone who knows the name Aristea - what I was named.

Though with the accent on the E and it being of Greek origins I would say it is pronounced more or at least how I pronounce my name phonetically.

Ah (like Father)-ri -STEH (like E in elephant)- Ah.

Everyone says it's pretty but don't try to pronounce it at all. Or butcher it to Ah- ris- tee (and sometimes Ah-ris-tee-aah).

Not used at all, except on letters when there's a street after Aristide Briand.

It is Italian as well, and not just French. And there are many famous bearers besides Briand. [noted -ed]

Italian pronunciation:

Ah-Ree-Stee-Deyh

"A" as in "Father." Roll your "R." The "I" in "Ri" is stressed to "EE." Again, for "Sti," the "I" must be stressed. "De" as in "Day," quite nearly. "Deyh." [noted -ed]

Louis Armand Aristide Bruand was a French bourgeois by birth he became well known in his time of the late 1800's in the Montmarte district of Paris for his singing/performing with the stage name of Aristide Bruant. He will forever be remembered now as the friend and prominent subject of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's posters/paintings advertising 'Aristide Bruant' in lettering but with dramatic flair in fashion as well (ie red scarf, hat, high boots.)
