    How would you classify Theia?

    How would you even classify that name? I'm really not sure? And do you like it? I like it pronounced "thay-ah" so I prefer Theia to Thea. Not my typical style AT ALL. I like all frills. My dad's name is Theodore so it may be a good middle, or even first if it can stand alone? Just trying to decide if it can make the list

    According to Behind the Name Theia is a variation of Thea, which originates from Greek mythology. Therefore, I'd classify Theia as a mythological name. I think it's nice but it will be seen as a kry8tiv spelling.

    Do you like lacier versions like Theodora or Theodosia?

    I like the traditional spelling of Thea. I don't think Theia would be pronounced correctly any more often, and the spelling would be a headache.

    I would class it as an exotic classic, feminine but no-frills.

    My first thought for a longer name was Theocleia/Theokleia, but I like Theia on its own, and would also prn. it thay-uh
    Yes, mythological classification, or exotic, or Greek

    I'm saving up Theodore for if our last child (if we go for #4 is a boy) but if we don't I thought maybe cute as a middle. I feel like I like it for someone else's kid, and if I saw it I would say wow great choice but I guess not for me :/ I do like it though.
