I used to know a girl with this name who spelt it Téa (with the accent over the E) and pronounced it TAY-uh. A famous bearer is actress Téa Leoni.

Arsenal football player Thiere Henry's daughter is called this and when he scores he celebrates with a tribute by crossing his fingers in a 'T' shape for her.

This is a drink, not a name. It's like having coffee as a name.
-- Anonymous User  8/26/2006
It's not an English name, so it isn't the same as Tea. It's not Tia either, not at least in Finland. I'm not sure about Swedish, because I don't speak real Swedish (rikssvenska).
And the version Teea is used, but it is rarer.

This name is pronounced "TEE-ah". Not the same as the drink called tea.

Actress, Tea Leoni is a famous bearer.

If Tea was the name of a triplet, the other would be Coffee and the other one would be Hot Chocolate.

Also a girls name in Slovenia.

I look at this name and think of iced tea. If you want the name to sound like TEE-ah, then you should spell it Tia.
-- Anonymous User  7/30/2007
The name is pronounced TAY-UH. Not Tea as in the drink. Although you can pronounce it that way. That wouldn't be the correct pronunciation.

This name will cause too much teasing throughout life.

TEA? TEA? Wha-? What kind of a name is this? I mean, I've heard of kids being named after drinks, but this? Christ, what has this world come to?
-- GunsnRoses8794  11/24/2008
Sigh. You are not naming a child after a drink. In the Scandinavian languages, the word for "tea" is "te". The name is pronounced TEE-ah or TAY-ah. This is simply a variant of Thea. It's not a variant of CHOCOLATE.

And her twin brother can be coffee.
-- Likeyeahwhatev  3/6/2009
I prefer the spelling Tia.
-- kool_babe14  5/13/2009
An alternate spelling option is Teea. I saw it in a baby name book.
-- Anonymous User  11/6/2009
This word is NOT pronounced like the drink. It's basically pronounced like the name Thea. You don't pronounce that [TEE], do you?
It's pronounced kind of like [T-AY-A], but the end of [AY] is not really there.
[to English-speaking people: I KNOW I'm making no sense xD you just have to come to Estonia or go to Finland and listen to people who know how to pronounce it]
-- MaryAuksi  12/13/2009
Also a girls' name in Croatia. [noted -ed]
-- goricar  12/22/2009
It is not pronounced "TEE", like a drink! Some people from English-speaking countries have to realize that you just can't pronounce some names like that. It is pronounced TAY-uh or TEH-ah (Croatian pronunciation). Before you post comments such as: "Christ, what has this world come to?, This is a drink, not a name. It's like having coffee as a name" inform yourself on the subject you're commenting. I know a few girls named Tea, and they are not teased or anything. World isn't made up just of native English speakers.
-- XxproudrulerxX  1/9/2010
The name is also used in Estonia.
-- Britttu  6/5/2010
Argh, ignorant English speaking people!

The name Tea is a perfectly normal name. Like said above, the drink is called Te in European countries - at least it is in Denmark. This is a two syllable name, a variation of Thea (which in Denmark has a silent h, has the same pronunciation and therefore is the exact same name) and therefore it has nothing to do with any kinds of hot drinks.
-- Anonymous User  6/8/2010
It's not an English name. It says right there- Usage: Scandinavian, Finnish, Slovene, Croatian. Many languages would pronounce it as two syllables, excluding English (and it isn't even consistent). Any jokes about her twin being named Coffee aren't clever or funny.
Anyway, I think it's too simple as a full name.
-- bathos  7/30/2010
There is also a name "Teea" in Finland (though it's quite rare - I've never met any other Teea's with two e's) - it's pronounced the same way than Tea, so the difference is only in writing form.
-- Dizabella  12/23/2010
Téa Obreht, author of “The Tiger’s Wife.”.
-- Rin_0911  9/20/2012
Téa (Italian origins) is pronounced Tay-Ah.

My name is Tea and I'm from Slovenia.:) I really like my name a lot, it's actually one of my favourites, so I'm very glad my parents named me Tea.;)Nobody's ever teasing me because of it here, cause it doesn't even mean or pronounce "Tea". Actually it doesn't mean anything here - it's simply a name. Maybe only some ignorant native English speaking people somewhere on internet, who come across this name, try to tease me with coffee and stuff (haha those English speakers:D), but I just smile and let them have fun. I don't feel offended or anything, cause I'm very proud of my name. And that's it!;) Peace!
-- Tea  6/27/2013
My name is Tea and I'm Croatian. It's pronounced like TE-ah, not TEE. It's not even close to how we say Tea (čaj), although I, as a Tea lover, don't mind people getting confused :)
-- soldsecrets  11/2/2013
There are two meanings for this name, one is "wild rose", and the other is "gift of god" (since Tea is a short form of Dorotea which means the same thing).
