So I tend to have a more old fashion taste in names.
(i.e. Estelle, Adelaide, Hazel, Vera)

Lately, I've really taken a love for the name
Theodora.

I just think it's so cute with the nickname Thea or Teddy. But I'm afraid it's too old fashion for some people.

So, honest opinion, what do you think of Theodora nn Thea?

Possible combos: Estelle Theodora, Theodora Jude, Theodora Juliet, Eloise Theodora, Theodora Scarlett, Theodora Charlotte, Theodora Violet, Olivia Theodora & Grace Theodora.

Its cute... it's not my style.. but its not terribly old-fashioned like, for example.. Mary and Barbara are..

Thea is a pretty nn! I see Teddy as more of a boys nn for some reason.. I think it was a guys name on a tv show so its stuck as a boys name for me :)

Estelle Theodora is nice! Along with Eloise Theodora.. Theodora Scarlett, Theodora Charlotte and Grace Theodora.
If your really concerned about it being overly old-fashioned, then maybe use it as a middle name..

My main "thing" is that it has 'Dora' in it.. so all I can think of is 'Dora the Explorer' [thank Tasha for that one ;)] but maybe the whole show will be over by the time you have kids.. or maybe others wont associate this to the name.

Theodora nick name Thea is absolutely gorgeous! :) i personally wouldnt use it, but i canr deny how pretty it is <3

It is old fashioned, but not in the bad way. Like, naming a girl Bertha, to me, would be an eh version of old fashioned. But i bet this name will fit right in with the Isabella's and everything! Yet it would be unique. I personally think it has all the feels that the trend is today-- except its underused an beautiful and all. Its not a dated name, like Nicole and Brittany. But yeah. Haha! <3

I like most all the combo's you've got! I adore Theodora Scarlett though :)

I like it. It's unusual, but not fabricated or unheard of. It's not something hard to say or spell either.
