Meaning of the baby name ALTHAEA.

  

ALTHÆA.  Latin form of Greek Althaia (q.v.), meaning "I heal," from the name of a marsh-mallow, ἀλθαία, noted for its healing properties. (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905).

    But when wrath darkened Meleazer's life,
    Wrath, which in hearts of even the wise is rife,
    He angry with Althaea, who him bare,
    Lay housed with Cleaopatra, his dear wife,
    Child of Evenus' child, Marpessa fair,
And Idas, flower of knights that on the earth then were.
                                            Iliad of Homer, Book IX.
