Which name do you prefer Sophia or Thea? Also what mn would you suggest for either name? Me and OH like Sophia Rose and Thea Rose

Sophia. I'm really not a fan of Thea. It makes think of thawed out food

Sophia definitely!

RedBugMug Sat 27-May-17 16:52:44

there are so many called Sofia/Sophia/Sophie that they need numbering. (3 in each dc's class)

I'm not keen on Thea but Sophia is very popular where I live (and I bet a majority of them have Rose as a middle name).

I prefer Thea but would be pissed off if people said 'Fea' and didn't pronounce the TH properly.

Yes, I imagine there are many Sophie Roses around!

Personally, I would try to go with a less well used middle name, especially if you go with Sophie, as it is quite well used.

I slightly prefer Sophie, but both are lovely names.

How about Sophie Thea or Thea Sophie?

Sophia sorry! Go away autocorrect grin.

I always thought Thea was pronounced Tia 🙈

Bleurghghghgh Sat 27-May-17 18:23:47

The Thea I know is Tay-ah - how are you planning on pronouncing it OP?

My dd is called Sophia, I don't hear it much where I am which is surprising, I didn't give her a middle name but I would've given her May as a middle name if were to give her one.

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 27-May-17 18:27:53

Sorry, my last post was my way of saying, I prefer Sophia.

Bluebeedee Sat 27-May-17 18:29:24

Thea, pronounced Theea/Thia

I know so many Sophias and Sophies

DramaAlpaca Sat 27-May-17 18:29:59

Sophia is a beautiful classic name. It's popular, but that's because it's such a lovely name. I like Sophia Rose.

With apologies to anyone who's got one, I find Thea a bit lispy and insubstantial.

Greylilypad Sat 27-May-17 18:37:03

Definitely Thea.

sauceyorange Sat 27-May-17 19:28:20

Thea. Beautiful meaning, lovely name which is feminine, isn't too girly and pretty but works for a barrister, ballet dancer or whatever she chooses to become.

Sophia. I used to know a Thea pronounced Tay-a so I can't really get my head around Thee-a.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Sat 27-May-17 20:10:02

Sophia Rose is very nice.

SuperBeagle Sat 27-May-17 21:12:03

Sophia by a million miles.

Not a fan of Thea.

I have a Thea and when she hears someone being called Sophia in the park she often looks up, so names are quite similar. Both lovely.
