Hello, my name is Letha. My Grandmother's name was also Letha. I guess she didn't like it so she added Jacqueline in front of Letha. I have a hard time with people always saying "Lisa" instead of Letha. I laugh and smile then tell them no, it's "Letha", Lisa with a lisp.

My mother's name was Letha but most of her friends called her Lee. I called her Mom. She was the best Mom in the world and I miss her dearly. The name meaning is strange to me because it means forgetful. My mother had the best memory in the world and had all her wits with her at her time of passing. I will never forget her either. The name to me, is beautiful.

My name is Letha Mitchell and I HATED my name growing up! Now that I’m an adult and the movie “Lethal Weapon” came out... I LOVE LOVE LOVE my name. It’s as unique & original as I am! It doesn’t bother me that people add the additional “L” because at times I can be Lethal with my attitude/mouth.

My name is Letha and I am proud of my name. I think it is beautiful and uncommon. And no, I myself am not hideous.

Named after my grandmother as well. She was Letha Pearl, I am Letha Jane. She went by Pearl but I go by Letha although some family members insist on calling me Janie. There has always been a fair amount of confusion with my name, but it has been a great conversation starter. Yes, just call me “lethal weapon”.

My name is also Letha and I am also named after my "grandmother". (She was more formal.) Since most people think "Lisa" when I say my name, I also say "think Lisa with a lisp." But, I really like saying "It's Lethal with one L."

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!

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.

I seem to recall it meant "forgetful".

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.

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.

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.
