The name Letha itself actually is actually related to oblivion, from the name of the river through hades Lethes. I double checked this on Wikipedia (under Latis, Letha is some comic book character in a metal bra) but I first heard it from someone named Letha.

Hideous. Sounds like someone with a lisp is trying to say Lisa. This name is just asking for someone to add an ''L'' to the end.

While I may not agree with the first part of your comment, I agree with the second: this name will attract unwanted L's like the strongest magnet that ever existed.

I personally knew an older lady named Leatha (pronounced Lee-tha), and have seen it spelled Leitha as well. The usage of the name would have occurred 80-100 years ago.

The variant spelling Leatha was commonly used in the 1850's-1930's in the U.S.

Add an L.

I seem to recall it meant "forgetful".

It means:'Sweet oblivion'. Lethe was the river of forgetfulness in Greek mythology.
So yeah, it means forgetfulness in a way. But not in a bad way. This is a very pretty name I think.

You're all correct for the most part, save the person that thinks it's hideous. It is derived from "Lethe" and it does mean "oblivion"

And yes, as someone that is actually named Letha. [I'm named after my gramma] I can confirm that a lot of people can't seem to understand my name. Lol. I tell them "It's like Lisa, but with a lisp." Personally, I love my name!
