We had originally decided on Jessica with thea as a middle name as my oh really likes thea but i thought it sounded a bit random. Now i can't decide which one to go for!

Normally I can't bring myself to post on baby name threads but...

They're both nice fsmile

Both lovely but I'd go for Thea.

I have a Thea and get lots of compliments. I love it!

Jessica, as Thea is having a moment at the minute.

Both lovely but Thea is perhaps the less used of the two, so I would go for that.

Are you pronouncing it 'tay ah'
I work with a delightful Theya it's a great name

Thea Thee-a

Thanks for all the replies, atleast theres not a massive reaction against Thea! Maybe I'll have to decide once shes born!

I would imagine a Thea to be bright, creative, sensible, studious girl.

DS1 was going to be either Thea or Althea but he was a boy.

Loads of Jessica around, not many Thea.
I like Thea.

Thea is a bit different - I like it!

Jessica. Thea a bit chav.

Thea (or Theia) was a Greek titan known as the goddess of light, who put the shining light in jewels, and was the mother of the sun, the moon and the dawn...
How is that "a bit chav"???

Thea definitely, more beautiful and unusual. Jessica is a more popular name and not so nice in my opinion.

MagicFinger Tue 15-Dec-15 13:33:55

Thea is definitely not chav, quite the opposite actually grin

And i was worried of using Thea incase it was too posh sounding. Didnt even think of it as chavvy!
