I really like Thea as a girls name but dh wants a longer version as the proper name, although the baby would still be known as Thea. I worry that Theodora might be a bit too much.

And what about middle names? We are in wales and I was thinking of maybe Elin or Seren, although dh isn't keen. He likes Rose as an alternative.

All opinions welcome!!

Lovely name, prefer NN of Teddy, but just my opinion smile

Dorothea if you're not keen?

How about Thea-Rose Seren

I like Theadora (my phone autocorrected to 'the adorable')

How about Theadora Haf? Nice single syllable Welsh name :-)

I prefer Dorothea. Cerys might be a nice middle name?

Absolutely love it. Was my top choice for DD. We went for something v similar in the end. Thea is a lovely NN as is Dora.
