Thay-a, or Tay-a. But upon seeing the name for the first time I would ask.

With a soft 'th', not like in 'they'.

I'm from New Zealand, now living in London.

Oops sorry North West.

Depends - I know a Thee-uh and a Tea-uh (although admittedly the latter is German)

I know a Thee-uh and Tay-uh, both spelled Thea, but personally I'd say it the first way when seeing it for the the first time.

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Tue 21-Jul-15 21:13:11

Thee-uh (East of England)

Citizen of the world.

ShapeBandit the old 'eye-key-ah' or the new 'I-Kay-uh'? I still say eye-key-ah but I'm a Luddite. I digress.

Thea to me is

Th as in thorn
E as in ee-by-gum
A as in ahhhhh

MrsBungle Tue 21-Jul-15 21:14:35

Thee-a (soft th) I'm Scottish

SueBigFatSue Tue 21-Jul-15 21:14:37

silverglitterpisser Tue 21-Jul-15 21:15:10

Thee-ah as described by silent. Am in North West.

Archer26 Tue 21-Jul-15 21:16:02

Thee-a. I know two and they both pronounce it like that.

From Midlands.

andyourlittledogtoo Tue 21-Jul-15 21:19:16

Thee - ah

Same as Archer - I'm from Midlands and know one who pronounces it like this.

SilentBob Tue 21-Jul-15 21:19:23

I forgot to say I'm in the north west. Although my ee-by-gum may have given that away smile

MuttonCadet Tue 21-Jul-15 21:20:06
