Any opinions welcome, or suggestions for similar names. Both would be stand alone names, not short for anything. Cheers!

Adore Thea.

Although I don't dislike the name Thea, my only concern would be that other children (and possibly adults) would pronounce it Fe-ah.

I think they're both great. Thea in particular I like.

I really like the name Thea - and I think you might find that with Jessie people continually ask "is that short for Jessica" which I imagine would get pretty annoying!

I like Thea but I really like Jessie.

Thanks everyone! I really like both names, but maybe leaning slightly towards Thea for the reason mentioned by Ms CB. Still love Jessie though.

Really like both (am owner of one of child called one of them :-) )

Thea - a lovely name, will 'last a lifetime' (iykwim).

Jessie sounds wet and is a dog's name...

Lockets and other Thea parents, does your Thea have any nicknames or just Thea?

LolaRennt Sat 02-Jul-11 01:37:53

I think of jessie as a boy's name or short for jessica, Thea is lovely (it will be pronounced fe eah in essex though!)

Greenwing Sat 02-Jul-11 07:14:39

Thea is better.
Jessie sounds like the boy's name Jesse and is a nn. It would be better to call her Jessica and use it as a nn.
Jessica is the best option imho.

I love the name Thea. I'm not that keen on Jessie as it seems more like a little girl's name than a grown woman.
