Mojca,

We can get

alpha by typing either
    escape a escape   (an alias)  or  \[Alpha] (its name)
capital alpha by
    escape A escape                  or  \[CapitalAlpha]
theta by
    escape th  escape                 or  \[Theta]
capital theta by
    escape Th  escape                 or  \[CapitalTheta]

etc.

You can find all these and much more by going to

          File > Palettes > Complets Characters > Letters > Greek

Placing the pointer over a letter will show an alias and the name on the
bottom bar.

Note also the Script, Gothic, Double-Struck and Extended Latin alphabets.

A general discussion is at
    Help > The Mathematica Book > Mathematica Reference Guide > Listing of
Named Characters > Contents > A.12.1  Introduction
