BBC's Sherlock is why I searched for this name. I absolutely loved it as soon as Mycroft's assistant said it in ASIP. Anthea Jane is beautiful.

In England it isn't pronounced with a long stressed second syllable - all the syllables are the same length, but there's a slight stress on the first. AN-the-uh
I love that name, pronounced like that, and would love to use it in a combo such as Anthea Jane or Anthea Felicity

I've loved this name ever since I fell in love with Anthea Stonem on Skins UK. J'adore! Sounds like a feminine version of Anthony, but with a bit of a smirk.
