Athena nn Thea?
My husband and I are trying to conceive baby #2, and are trying to narrow down girl names. This is one we're considering, but would love to hear your thoughts feedback on Athena and Thea. Which of these would you put on the birth certificate, and middle name options?
For Thea, I'm really liking:
For Athena, I'm really liking:
Our last name is pronounced ALL-berg, and if we went with Athena Violet, here initials would be AVA, another potential nickname.
Do these names "go" with brother Van? Any other first name recommendations to pair with him? I'd say we like names that reflect a creative personality, are "real" names, no creative spellings, are feminine but not frilly, and have a subtle earthiness to them maybe? The picture below has a quality of what we're going for in a name...what would you name her, for instance?
How about Althea? (I also like Athea and it's apparently not a real name).
I really like Thea as a nn (Ava is great too despite it's growing popularity) but think Athena is a bit off with sibling Van. Athena is a bit to recognizable and popular in that combo. Althea is a funkier and less popular and in my book makes an awesome match with Van.
Athena and Van are a great sibset IMO. Athena nn Thea would work, and Athena Violet is stunning. Initials AVA are a lovely nn too, despite popularity.
