I'm a big fan of the name Timothy, so that's one factor of why I like this name. But, at first, I was left giggling at the sight of Timothea, thinking it was a sad attempt at a feminine variation of a male name. But after saying it aloud, and kinda getting a taste for it, I quickly put it on my list of favorites! And the nickname Thea is wonderful.

Nope, the person above was right when they thought that it was another sad attempt. Ick, just too much! Imagine her at school, the substitute teacher calling her Timothy!

Timothea sounds nothing like Timothy in my accent. I think this name is really cute.

Since this name would obviously be pronounced "tim-ə-THEE-ə" to anyone who read it, there is little danger of girls with this name being called "Timothy" by mistake.

However, I could only really see it being used by a parent who was desperate to honour someone named Timothy (a relative or favourite author, perhaps) and only had a daughter to do it with.

And Thea is the only viable short form, really.

My mom calls me this when she thinks I'm acting too much like my dad (whose name is Timothy). Up till now, I had no idea it was an actual name.

My name is Timothea, I go by Thea for short. I have to mention that when I was young I was teased to no end by my school mates. However as I've grown I do not resent my mother for choosing this name for me. To this day I get a regular stream of strangers who either don't know how to pronounce "Timothea" or just call me Timothy. It is a bit on the redundant side! Many people have asked me if my parents had made up this name or asked if I was named after a male relative. I can assure you this is not the case. My parents were quite convinced that someday my name would be popular ( like Jennifer or Sara). So in short I no longer regret that my name is what it is and I'm happy to be one of the few to adorn this name!

Tiggy could be a nickname for this name.

Can be used in English.

Again, I personally prefer Timantha as the feminine form of Timothy, used when Timmy Turner was turned into a girl in an episode of The Fairly OddParents.

I love Timothy/Tim, and this rare feminine version should definitely be more widely used and appreciated. It could be an honour name for a Timothy, and has the added bonus of Thea, as a possible nickname. Timmy for a girl would be cute, too - maybe using Timmie as the spelling.
