I'm really torn right now.
I absolutely adore the name Theodosia, and I was going to name my little girl Theodosia Grace, Theda for short.
BUT
Then I found out that in the 1920s, there was a film star called Theda Bara (real name Theodosia) who was renowned for being very evil.
Can I still use the name? Or should I pick another?
Thanks.

I've honestly never heard the name before or of that person, so it didn't have any negative connotations with me.

I say go for it.

I'd still use it. It's a great name, and I'm sure very few people will make that connection (I certainly didn't!).

P.S. I love your other daughter's name.
