For a girl?

Whyriskit Sun 28-Oct-12 14:13:07

Lovely name!

Britchic Sun 28-Oct-12 14:44:41

I really like it, pretty but not overly girly.

ALittleBitOfMagic Sun 28-Oct-12 14:45:52

Oh that's pretty !! smile

I like it but find it odd as a standalone name due to its meaning. Nice as a nn for Dorothea.

Fifi2406 Sun 28-Oct-12 14:48:55

What is it's meaning????

Fifi2406 Sun 28-Oct-12 14:50:28

I thought it meant goddess?

RosannaBanana Sun 28-Oct-12 14:55:04

Yes, the female of God. Theo is Greek for God. I thought about it for DD but it seemed strange to call my child God/Goddess. But just my personal opinion if course! It is a lovely sounding name smile

Goddess- I like it wink though- shock- its getting popular and startrite and hush puppies have names a school shoe this year lol.

Theas18 Sun 28-Oct-12 14:57:12

And lovely as it is you do have to put up with small kids shouting "fee ah" all the time - thru do grow out if it though it does offend the ear at the time...

BananaBubbles Sun 28-Oct-12 15:06:48

Love,love,love it.

Pincushion2 Sun 28-Oct-12 18:22:46

Beautiful name

Love it.

squoosh Sun 28-Oct-12 19:14:20

Beautiful.

Elegant and feminine without a hint of frilliness!

RTchoke Sun 28-Oct-12 19:19:55

I love it, thinking of Dorothea (nn Thea) for current bump.

Alisvolatpropiis Sun 28-Oct-12 20:32:34

It's lovely on it's own or as a nickname smile

Fifi2406 Sun 28-Oct-12 23:04:36

Majority like this one then!! Thank you!

echidnakid Mon 29-Oct-12 00:05:02

Definite yes, love it!

ICutMyFootOnOccamsRazor Mon 29-Oct-12 00:08:51

Adore it. It was in my top 3 for DD and I still wish we'd used it.

funnypeculiar Mon 29-Oct-12 00:16:14

As a Thea-owner smile - yes, expect lots of Fee-ur pronounciation amoungst the under 5s. I occasionaly regret not going with Dorothea/Anthea and having Thea as a shortening, but I like Thea more than either of those. Fwiw, dd (currently) likes her name too.

SirBoobAlot Mon 29-Oct-12 00:17:23

Its nice.

Only thing that puts me off is how popular it is. Lots of Thea's and Rhea's around.

Devora Mon 29-Oct-12 00:51:49

Surprised to hear it is popular - no Theas or Rheas round here.

Thea was on my shortlist. So was Dora. Both vetoed by dp sad

forevergreek Mon 29-Oct-12 11:58:16

I like thea, would use Ophelia as full name though and shorten to thea

TruthSweet Mon 29-Oct-12 12:18:00

I have an Alethea nn Thea - though at the grand old age of 5y she wants to be known as Alethea all the time sad I love Thea

Fifi2406 Mon 29-Oct-12 17:31:30

Personally i'm not keen on the fuller versions of Thea...I just like Thea! But the name is for a friend not on mums net so I'll tell her your suggestions!
