Go back to names list

Rhea is a feminine name of Greek origin, and the Greek meaning is said to refer to flowing water. The name is widely used in Welsh and probably comes from the same origin, as it is the name of a river that flows through Wales as well as being a popular girls name. In Greek mythology Rhea was the name of the mother of the influential gods Zeus, Poseidon, Demeter and Hera. Like many Greek gods, Rhea is also found in Roman mythology. Popularity of the name may have been increased by the fame of the ‘Cheers’ actress Rhea Perlman.
