Aristéa is a feminine derivitive. Pronounced: air-i-STAY-uh.

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).

A famous bearer is Aristide Briand (1862-1932), a Prime Minister of France who received the 1926 Nobel Peace Prize.

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:


"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.)
