What do people think of the girls name Thea?

Biscuitsneeded Tue 24-Jun-14 22:19:50

Great name. I think she sounds intelligent and spirited.

Surf25 Tue 24-Jun-14 22:23:32

Love it

miffybun73 Tue 24-Jun-14 22:24:40

Lovely smile

WolfMoon Tue 24-Jun-14 22:26:04

Personally I'm not keen, I think it sounds (and looks) a little bit unfinished somehow.

purplemunkey Tue 24-Jun-14 22:26:31

Oh good, two positives so far! I really like it as its short, sweet, easy to spell and there won't be loads of other girls in her class with the same name. Definitely one for the shortlist then smile

LavenderCakes Tue 24-Jun-14 22:27:28

Love it. Know one - she's beautiful and clever, so obvs yours will be too. Also makes me think of Dorothea Brooke, of Middlemarch, one of the great heroines of literature.

mousmous Tue 24-Jun-14 22:27:51

love it,
it's very popular right now, with all sorts of variants
(dorothea, tia, diya, teya) just to keep in mind.

wolfmoon how do you feel about Althea?
I love Thea, but I say my th's like f's so I would make it sound awful

McBear Tue 24-Jun-14 22:29:04

Love the name. Only know two. One was an absolute bitch and ruined it for me angry

WhispersOfWickedness Tue 24-Jun-14 22:29:54

I love it pronounced the Scandinavian way, Taya smile

purplemunkey Tue 24-Jun-14 22:33:34

Taya is nice. I did wonder if it sounded like it should be short for something but it's seems its fine as a name in itself. Althea is a nice suggestion also.

YellowStripe Tue 24-Jun-14 22:36:37

I didn't think I liked it, but had a very vivid dream about adopting a baby and changing her name to Thea (even though I knew I didn't like it!).

And so now it makes me smile smile

JabberJabberJay Tue 24-Jun-14 22:36:51


But it might be more popular than you think. I know 3 little girls with the name.

DramaAlpaca Tue 24-Jun-14 22:39:18

I'm going to go against the majority here & admit that I don't like it, sorry blush.

purplemunkey Tue 24-Jun-14 22:41:50

Really JabberJabberJay? I haven't met any Theas. Perhaps that's something to consider. We're not deliberately trying to be unique, I just quite fancied something not quite so classic without being too pretentious or out there!

purplemunkey Tue 24-Jun-14 22:43:32

Fair enough DramaAlpaca, it's what this thread is for - honest opinions ;)

DramaAlpaca Tue 24-Jun-14 22:48:41

Phew! Glad you're not offended.

I don't normally post on names I don't like, but as you asked for honest opinions I thought I'd go for it wink

Love it. Would have used it myself but a) I have difficulty pronouncing the 'th' sound and b) our surname has a similar sound (think Thea Frear or similar!)
Unusual and sophisticated sounding - lovely

Fuckalella Tue 24-Jun-14 22:54:05

I like it! One of DDs best friends (preschool) is a Thea.

Nereida Tue 24-Jun-14 23:49:00

It's ok but I dislike 'th' names, some people might pronounce it 'fear'! Also I'm not keen on the meaning.

My friend. Anthea goes by Thea.
