Thaddeus is a strong handsome name. Seems more modern than it is. I love the nickname Teddy and Taz for it.

I'm madly in love with this name and, barring absolute contempt from my husband, am naming my first son Thaddeus, with the nickname Tadd. I think it's a very strong, masculine name that also doesn't prohibit fun.

Thaddeus (or Thaddäus) is Squidward's German name in Spongebob Squarepants.
It fits him to the Tee.

More DC Comics stuff for everyone!

Thaddeus Thawne/Inertia, nemesis to the second Kid Flash, Bart Allen. I don't think it's coincidence that the two of them have Biblical names.

It's derived from the Aramaic word "tadda", an appellation one would give to a close friend or younger sibling (literally, it means "breast" - but think of the phrase "bosom buddy" and you'll see why this makes sense). Henceforth, a very loose translation would be "friend".

This is one of my latest name crushes! Thaddeus is manly, yet refined. He's smart and rugged. Overall, I find the name sort of sexy.

I used to know a boy named Thaddeus back in elementary school. The name to most of us sounded harsh and disgusting, but now I rather like it. I think in today's day and age, Thaddeus is more suited as a middle or confirmation name rather than a first name.

Feminine forms of this name include Thaddea or Thaddaea (English), Tadea (Spanish), Taddea (Italian), and Thaddäa (German).

I have also found these very unusual English feminine forms derived from Thaddeus: Thaddette, Thaddine, Thaddene, Thaddina and Thaddena. I just Google searched the names and found that there are women with those names.

The forms Thadette, Thadine, etc do not necessarily derive from Thaddeus. They are common Eastern Frisian feminine forms of the name Thade, deriving from Germanic names containing the name element THIOT "people".

This name sounds awesome. LOVE it! :D.
