Dh and I are really struggling with baby names, we quite like Thea but I'm still not 100%. What do you think of the name Thea and what names might be of a similar ilk? I don't want a name that's too frilly. I want something that's undeniably female but quite strong too.

Go with Thea , Lovely.
It is a beautiful, classy name , in my eyes.
Tia, Mia and Ria, don't cut it.

Beautiful name, strong but soft at the same time.

Had a lovely, lovely teacher called Thea, short for Dorethea. Think it's it's a really nice name.

I've only known one Thea and she was very cool. She was actually Theabelle but chose to drop the Belle part of her name. It's a good name. A bit different but not too unusual.

I have a Thea so I'm obviously biased but I think it's lovely and will suit her no matter what kind of person she turns out to be. Thea would be a good name for a little tomboy or a fashion obsessed teenager and anything in between. If you don't go for Thea, we also had Tess/ Tessa, Asha and Annika on our list .

It's becoming very popular here SE if that bothers you. Pretty name.

Sunnydawn Mon 03-Oct-16 21:26:21

I love it. One of my favourite girl's names.

WaitrosePigeon Mon 03-Oct-16 21:44:54

It's 'trendy' at the moment.

I know two. Lovely name, but both pronounced differently!
One is short for Matthea, and pronounced Thay-a. The other is pronounced Thee-a.

Hebe?

Thea is the girl version of Theo which is very God related, so it always sounds quite bookish and religious to me.

spacefrog35 Mon 03-Oct-16 22:29:57

Lovely name.

Thea is lovely. I like the suggestion of Hebe too. What about Tess?

LovelyBranches Tue 04-Oct-16 21:47:40

Thank you for your suggestions. I like Tess but I prefer Thea which is good, it's helped cement it's place for me.

I have a Thea, she's two, and it totally suits her. I also didn't want a frilly name and my Thea is quite a tomboy too!
I have only come across one other.

Love Dorothea nn Thea.

How about Thalia?

I love Thea! If we had a girl, that's what we'd have named her. It's a beautiful name
