    I know two little girls named Thea and no adults, so it strikes me as a name on the rise. I’ve never heard it pronounced Thee-uh, which I don’t like at all – sorry if that’s harsh! I love the pronounciation Tay-ah, though.

    I’m not a huge fan of Thea, personally. I’ve always heard it pronounced “thay-uh” not “thee-uh” and am even less a fan of the “thee-uh” pronunciation – sorry!!!! 

    What is it about Thea that you like? That it’s short? Starts with a T? Has a particular “feel” to it? Maybe we can brainstorm other names for you!

    I know several adults named Thea. Personally, it strikes me as an older name like Barbara.

    I love that name.. its very regal sounding.  I was considering it for our own little girl.  Its different enough that it probably wont catch on too much and I prefer the thee uh pronounciation myself.

    I first heard that name from the CW show Arrow, the younger sister of the main character is named Thea pronounced thee uh.  Its when I first started liking the name.  

     

    Go with what you like.

    Thea means aunt in my culture so I don’t think it would be an appropriate name. The name comes off as Aunt Jordan. Doesn’t it also mean aunt in Spanish too?

    MrsHawkeye :  I really like Thea, but not with Jordan so I’d go back to the drawing board. I lost a sister when we were young and my daugher has her name for her middle – it’s a lovely way to remember them by.

    MrsHawkeye :  it just doesn’t quite flow for me. I don’t think it’s bad it just almost sounds like one long name rather than two distinct names if that makes sense. But I really do love the name Thea and the middles are hardly used in day-to-day anyways.

    MrsHawkeye :  How about these:

    Teagan Jordan
    Tate Jordan
    Tatum Jordan
    Tinley Jordan 

    Just some “T” ideas that seem to have a similar feel to what you were originally going for, and which I think go well with Jordan. Check out nameberry.com if you haven’t already!
