This is actually an anagram for Death. Because of this, it was chosen as a stage name to enhance Theda Bara's dark, femme fatale image. I'm glad to see it's official meaning is much more positive. It really is a lovely name.

Theda Bryant Says:


It has it's pro's and con's... living with it for 36 years. Bullies were tough in middle school. But I love it now.

Daiseymae Says:


My cousin was name after Theda Bara.

lovelace Says:


This is what we call our daughter Theodora. We had planned on calling her Thea, but Theda came a lot more naturally. She has dark hair and huge brown eyes and even reminds you a bit of Theda Bara, so I think it fits her perfectly. We say it Thee-dah (as in the word 'thief').

Lumille Says:


How is this pronounced? Thee-da or Thay-da?

Cleora12345 Says:


I like the name Theda. It's cute with a vintage feel, but still seems fresh and new for the modern era. Theodora with the nickname Theda is really nice.

headintheclouds Says:


Pretty nickname option for Theodora, Dorothea or Theodosia like the silent film actress. Theda does stand on its own though, and makes for a lovely short and sweet girl's name. It is unique but still sounds substantial rather than made up, and it has gravitas and spunkiness rolled together in the two syllables.

Lovely, tailored name. Teddy would make an adorable nickname.
