    Red face Please help me with the name Thea

    My husband likes the name Thea,(pronounced THEE-UH) and it's definitely growing on me. According to nameberry Thea is the name of the Greek goddess of light and the mother of the sun, moon, and dawn. I think it's quite pretty!

    Is this an ok name by itself or should it be a nickname for something like Theadora, or Althea? What other names could it be short for?

    What would be a good middle name for it?

    Thank you!

    I love Alethea nn Thea (prn uh-LEE-thee-uh). But I think Thea stands on its own quite well- Theodora (prefer this spelling) is kind of clunky and Althea sounds too old lady for me.

    Thea is a lovely name on its own but I also like it as the nn for Theadora, Athena, Anthea or Alethea. Theadora's probably my favourite of those options.

    I think Thea is a good name that can stand on it's own, but it's just as cute as a nickname for many names. I really like Athena, with Thea as a nn for it.
    If I had a baby right now, I'd name it,
    Scarlett Amelia or Emerson Joseph.
    I also like Cashel, Gabriel, Genevieve, & Juliette. + So much more.
    I'm Ashley btw, and I'm 19!

    My old co-worker has a niece named Thea, so I can see it standing on its own easily enough. I do love some of the longer versions though. Althea and Theadora are both lovely. My name is Cynthia and I wish Thea would have been my nickname instead of Cindy... sigh.
    Ttc a baby brother or sister for Luther Wolf!
