I actually love this which is odd because I am not a huge fan or Matteo or Matthew

Lovely name, and feels really fresh without being made-up or too far out there.

I have a great aunt Named Mattea Josephine. She was meant to be a boy and they were to call her Matthew Joseph :-)
Her name is pronounced Ma-tee-ah. So pretty and is also the inspiration for my long time nickname "Katteah" ( my given name is Kate :-)
