    I think Thea is a beautiful name. It does sound like something more mature but not necessarily too mature for a girl or young woman to have. I also think it sounds pretty with Jordan but only you know how it flows with your last name and that would be a big thing for me.

    I like Thea, and would pronounce as “thee-uh” but I don’t know that it flows well with Jordan. Can’t quite put my finger on what I don’t like about it as a combo.. although I do like both names individually.

    I personally love the name Thea, pronounced thee-ah. Ibe never seen it pronounced the other way that the bees have mentioned. I also really like it with Jordan too! 

    However, I think that if a middle name has a personal meaning behind it, I doesn’t matter if the name necessarily “flows” or not. Significance trumps every time for me. I also plan on naming my first kid (not there yet) after my brother who has passed, and his name is Chad. So let’s be real, not a lot actually flows with Chad. Haha.

    I love the name Thea and also the name Jordan, both great names. I wouldn’t have thought to pronounce it any other way than ‘Thee-ah’ personally!

    If you like ‘old fashioned’ names then Iris or Rosa also came to mind!

    I love Thea Jordan!  It’s such a good name 🙂  I would pronounce it just the way you explained.  If someone told me their name was Thea, I would write it down with the exact spelling you gave, too!  I am from the US and have been working in the public schools, and have never met a child named Thea.  Even outside of work, I’ve never met someone with that name, if that makes you feel better 🙂

    MrsHawkeye :  I like the name Thea! It’s cute and sweet, but is the type of name that will effortlessly see your daughter from babyhood to old age. It’s also a name that does not immediately beckon a nickname, which I tend to like. Or, if it does, it’s not names she’ll ultimately ask to be called (like T/Tee, etc.)

    As for Thea Jordan, I actually really like this combo. Thea Jordan is a really strong name!

    Thea is a nice name, but I’d have no idea how to pronounce it. Too many possibilities.

    I know a girl called Thea. I think it sounds very ethereal. Anyway the Thea I know has a small quiet voice and tends to daydream a lot.

    MrsHawkeye :  I love the name Thea Jordan. I know one other little one with that name pronounced your way. I think it’s beautiful. (Tia was my girl name if DS came out a Dear Daughter.)

    Just know that she will be Feeya to pretty much every kid until she’s 7-ish. I wouldn’t let that deter you though. My son’s name starts with R, so all his friends pronounce it as a W, but no one minds.

    We really considered using Thea for dd, but in the end we decided it was just too annoying have to correct people’s pronunciations all the time. I do think it’s a lovely name though.
