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.
