I'm pretty sure this is the full name of Dora, a princess ghost on 'Danny Phantom' but I'm not fully sure of the spelling. It might be Dorathea.

I'm very fond of this name, and it's high up on my favorites list. I like both Doro and Thea as nicknames.

I love this name. But we would write Doroteja. The shorter name would be Teja - it is a very popular name.

I think it is a lovely name. It has an "old" feeling to it and I like that. Thea and Dora are great nicknames.

The first pronunciation is beautiful, but the second one is awful. I speak English, and I personally would pronounce this dor-o-TAY-a... I don't know how many people would say dor-o-thee-a. I love the name Dorothy, but adding an a just makes it sound bad.
