    what would a Dorothea's sisters be named?

    Just looking for insight into how people see this name.

    What would a Dorothea be like, and what would you name her sisters?
    I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.

    My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

    I've never met a Dorothea before or even heard the name. You'll hate this but the first image that comes to mind is The wizard of Oz. For some reason I picture a Dorothea to be tall and strong, brown hair, freckles, loves theater/drama, sometimes bossy, gets good grades

    Dorothea (Thea)
    Eleanore (Ella)
    Wilhelmina (Willa or Mina)

    I love Dorothea and associate it with the great surrealist painter Dorothea Tanning--so someone strong, imaginative, and daring. Her sisters would be Helena and Marguerite. (It's off limits for me because my favorite cousin wants to name a daughter Dorothy, so I'm leaving it for her.)

    Dorothea is gorgeous, and I think of Dorothea as successful woman, smart yet funny.

    Sister names... Helena, Rosamund, Georgina/Georgiana, Vivian, Cecile, Francesca, Ottilie, Isabella, Charlotte, Mary, Margaretta/Marguerite...
