MY FATHER NAMED ME AFTER HIS EX-GERMAN GIRLFRIEND FROM YEARS BEFORE.HE WASN'T THAT FOND OF HER, BUT HE LOVED THE NAME. IN GERMANY THEA IS PRONONCED (TEE-AH) BECAUSE IN GERMAN, THE "H" IS SILENT UNLESS IT'S THE LEADING LETTER, MOST OF THE TIME. I ALSO GET A LOT OF CRAP, ABOUT HOW I SAY MY NAME. THEY SAY IT'S NOT SPELLED THAT WAY, AND I TELL THEM, IT DEPENDS ON WHAT COUNTY YOU'RE IN. IT IS GREAT TO FIND SOME ONE WHO DOES HER NAME THE SAME WAY.
