    It actually works very well if you ask me. Being someone who is a stickler for nn though, that's the only snag. Other than that, it has great history, and sounds very nice. It's definitely unique, but it is usable, and quite lovely!

    It is my middle name and I've always liked it. I got the name from my great-aunt Athena who was called Thea (and was from Greece). I say go for it!

    I've known two girls named Athena (both from very Greek families), so to me this is a totally playground-friendly name as well as a strong, gorgeous mythological choice. I would love to meet another little Athena -- the ones I know are both great kids.
