Etymology & Historical Origin - Thea

Thea is the English, German and Scandinavian short form of one of two names: either from Dorothea or Theodora, both of which have essentially the same origin and meaning.  Dorothea evolved as the feminine form of the Late Greek Δωροθεος (“Dorotheos”) meaning “gift of God,” from the Ancient Greek elements doron “gift” and theos “god.” Alternately, Theodora is the feminine form of the Ancient Greek Θεοδωρος (“Theodoros”) whereby the same exact Greek elements are merely reversed.  Also, by itself, Thea is simply the feminine form of Theos and therefore means “(a) Goddess” on its own in Greek.  
 
Both Dorothea and Theodora have been in use since the Middle Ages, bestowed in honor of several saints bearing these names.  Dorothy has been in use among English speakers since the 15th century and Theodora since the 16th century.  Thea emerged as a pet form of both names c. 18th century and has been used as a stand-alone given name since the 19th century.

Personality of the Girl Name Thea

The number Seven personality is deeply mystical and highly in tune with their spirituality. They operate on a different wavelength than the average joe. Spending time alone comes easily to Sevens, as it gives them time to contemplate philosophical, religious and spiritual ideas in an effort to find "real truth".  Sevens are wise, but often exude mystery as if they are tapped into something the rest of us don't understand. They love the outdoors and are fed by nature. Sevens are constantly seeking to understand human nature, our place in the universe, and the mystery of life in general. This makes them quite artistic and poetic, but they are also keen observers with high intellect - so they are equally scientific-minded. Sevens are charitable and care deeply about the human condition.
