It is great to finally find out the origin of my own name ARISTEA. Knew it had something to do with excellence and being the best. =)
ARISTEA pronounced Ah-rist-EH-ah - I was named after my grandfather Aristides and the form is rare to find in Greek or any name meaning search.

Aristides (or Aristeides, Greek: Ἀριστείδης, 530 BC – 468 BC) was an ancient Athenian statesman. Nicknamed "the Just", he flourished in the early quarter of Athens' Classical period and is remembered for his generalship in the Persian War. The ancient historian Herodotus cited him as "the best and most honourable man in Athens", [1] and he received similarly reverent treatment in the writing of the philosopher Plato.

My grandfather was named Aristides, and I was named after him in a way (It's my middle name and I'm female so it was actually 'Aristea')

To cut a long story short, both this name and its feminine counterpart are really beautiful in my opinion and if it were up to me, I wouldn't change a thing about my middle name.

Hey, My name is Aristedes. Can anyone help me with the history of this name? I'm from Belize. My parents are from Guatemala, and somehow I don't know how I got this name. I searched for it on this site but the closest I got to was Aristides. I'm curious as to what's the origin and how I got this name knowing my parents have no relative in Spain (As far as I know).
