    Thanks @suzywoo :-)

    @becboo : thanks :-) Thaddeus is lovely but I like Edward more.
    @paw : thanks :-) I don't know why but I can't bring myself to like Thea. Its lovely & very similar to Theo but for me something is missing. I must sound very crazy right now :-P

    haha! This is great!

    I agree that Theo is too much of a stretch for Edward.

    If you like Theo, just use Theo. Like a pp said, it doesn't need a full name.

    Cora . Louisa . Lydia . Mary

    Yes, it's too much of a stretch. You're thinking of Edward nn Ted/Teddy, like the late Sen. Edward "Ted(dy)" Kennedy. You could just use Theo Edward as a full name, since people are beginning to use Theo on its own.

    I'm with Ottilie here. It's just too much of a stretch. It's like when I tried to get Posy out of Johanna--I've heard Josie as a nn for Johanna occasionally, to avoid just Jo, and I skipped Jo, even the out-there Josie, and went straight to Posy. I mean, it works for me, but literally NOBODY else. There's just no tie between Edward and Theo at all. The only other suggestion I can think of is Theoden. I like Theron as well, though.

    And please don't use just Theo for a girl. I can't even comprehend it. I don't even like it for a boy, but I really don't like it for a girl. I can't even imagine the headache it would be to be a girl Theo in a world where Theodore and Theo are mega-hits (not just in the US, but internationally. I'm pretty sure they're huge in the UK and other English-speaking countries). I usually try and avoid the whole unisex/boys-names-on-girls arguments (even though I'm fully against both), but Theo is just taking it too far. Theodora or Theodosia, nn Theo, wouldn't be that bad. But not just Theo.

    Thanks @ casilda & @ hermione_vader :-)

    @ashthedreamer : thanks :-) . I consider Theo on a girl since I read on web a fanfiction about a girl named Theo who fall in love with a werewolf but I doubt I would ever use it. PS : I like Johanna nn Posy ;-)
