This makes me think of the song from Hamilton, "Dear Theodosia." I think this may lead me to like it, but then again it might just get that song stuck in my head.

Well, my previous comment was correct, I am now absolutely obsessed with the name Theodosia. It's a beautiful and rare form of Theodora (which is rare on its own), and it eliminates the "dora" sound that I don't particularly like. The nicknames Teddy and Thea are cute, too.

As others have mentioned, Aaron Burr's daughter was named Theodosia. Her mother, Aaron Burr's first wife, was Theodosia--Theodosia Bartow Prevost Burr. The elder Theodosia was named after her father, Theodosius Bartow, an attorney who died before she was born.
