It looks like a beautiful name. It reminds me of the name Aretha.

In French it's pronounced, AN-tay-ah. PRETTY! Good name for a girl you want to name after an Anthony in your family!

How utterly gorgeous. Pronunciation, meaning, history - everything.

What a lovely name! It's cheerful, yet it has an almost wistful quality to it. Anthea is just a very pretty name.

Beautiful. It could be used as a combination of Ann and Thea.

I love this name, it's romantic, feminine and kind of exotic. Don't remember where I discovered it, but I've always spelled it Anthaea.

Anthea is the name of Mycroft Holmes' blasé assistant in the 2010 BBC adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes stories. She is quite amusing.

Beautiful name! It reminds me of Athena, but more usable. And you could use the nicknames Ann, Annie, or, my personal favourite, Thea.

It is a lovely name! I have 3 daughters, but if I was to have another I would definitely put this in my top 5 name choices to debate with my husband.
