Svea was originally (during the 1600-1700's) ONLY used as a term for Sweden. It wasn't until the poet Tegnèr published his poem Svea in 1817 that it started getting used as a given name.

The name of Sweden in modern Swedish is Sverige. Svea Rike is the old name, used several centuries ago.

Svea lives on, though, in the name of the central region of Sweden: Svealand. The southern region is called Götaland and the northern Norrland.

I know a girl named Svea. Very pretty name, but she pronounces it suh-VAY-ah. Not as pretty as SVAY-ah...

This name is absolutely beautiful! It's so exotic sounding, you don't often hear s and v together in sequence.
