    I love the name Thea.  When I first heard it mentioned on WB I immediately associated it with a character from The Arrow, Thea Queen.  I then looked it up and found its origin is Greek which intrigued me.  My Darling Husband is Cypriot and he speaks Greek fluently. I asked him what he thought of the name and he said Thea in Greek means aunt.  This put a damper on the name as an option for us because I wouldn’t want our future children who will presumably be bilingual associate the name with aunt.  Otherwise I find it to be a beautiful name!

    ETA: I’ve only ever heard this name pronounced thee-uh as you intend to use it.  This is also how its pronounced in Greek.

    I love the name Thea. Im from the UK and know 2 Theas, both are adults and pronounced ‘thee- uh’. Ive never heard of the pronounciations that other bees have said though.

    I don’t care for it (just a personal preference) but I really don’t think it flows with Jordan as the middle name.

    I like Thea! It definitely does remind me of Thea Queen from Arrow, but I wouldn’t say that’s a bad thing. I like it with Jordan too. It’s not my favorite, I doubt you plan on calling her “Thea Jordan” like it’s one name. And even then… I teach. I’ve heard a lot worse.

    Thea sounds like a classic name to me but one that wasn’t over used. I’ve only ever met one little girl with that name so I would use it 🙂

    I like the name, would pronounce as you wrote and think it’s fine with Jordan. But she will probably have to deal with people pronouncing it differently and not knowing for sure how to spell it. Will that bother you?

    I like Thea, I also like Theadora (the-ah-door-ah).

    I don’t mind Jordan, I mean, I don’t care for the name but it sounds okay with Thea.

    I love it! My Fiance and I watch the show Arrow and the main character’s sister’s name is Thea and we both really liked the name. We won’t be having kids for a few more years so when we got our cat we decided to name her Thea. I think Thea Jordan sounds fine.

    MrsHawkeye :  glitterati :   Soon2bmrs1 : I think Tay-uh is actually spelled Tea, like Tea Leoni, but in America the name Tea might be pronounced like the beverage. >.<

     The Thee-ah pronounciation of Thea makes a lot of sense though. I’m pretty sure the name is Greek and that Thee-ah is closer to the Greek pronunciation. Like Theo is pronounced Thee-oh. Or Althea, which is pronounced Al-thee-ah.

    I associate Thea as an old person name so it strikes me odd next to Jordan. I also just don’t like Thea so maybe I’m just being extra picky haha.

    What about?.. Tessa Jordan – Tyra Jordan – Trista Jordan
