Not only do I love this because of Hamilton but because I looked up the meaning of Theodosia and it means God's gift. Who wouldn't want to name their child God's gift?

Tessa, Tess, Thea, Tia, Teddy, Dia and Sia are potential nicknames.

Much better than Theodora, and Dear Theodosia is such sweet song anyway, so that association isn't bad. I like it, and Theo/Thea is a good nickname.

Even aside from the Hamilton association, this is a beautiful name that I would definitely use on a child. It sounds so Shakespearean, and almost Dickensian.

"Dear Theodosia, what to say to you. You have my eyes, you have your mothers name" such beautiful lyrics from Hamilton. It's a very nice and elegant name, this is honestly in my top 5 names for my future daughter if I will have one.

Theodosia is that one uncommon name that I absolutely love. Hamilton really put this name out there.

The English pronunciation of this name is thee-o-DOE-zee-ə.

Thee-a-DOE-sza is the traditional pronunciation of this name in the United States, at least. I wish that pronunciation option were listed on this name's page to avoid confusing people. My daughter's name is Theodosia Christine.

"Dear Theodosia, what to say to you? You have my eyes, you have your mother's name~" I love this name so much because of Hamilton.

I think Theodosia is a lovely name, prettier than Theodora, but less outlandish than Theophania. While it might be a tough name for a young girl to carry, the spunky nickname Theo is youthful and energetic.

I don't find this name pretty.

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.

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.

American actress Cicely Tyson's mothers name is Theodosia.

When I see or hear Theodosia, I always think of a bulldozer. This is just a bad, bad, bad name.

It reminds me of a wildflower.

Theodosia (c.775-826) was the consort of Leo V of Armenia.

My Theodosia was a novel by Anya Seton about Theodosia Burr Alston (as mentioned above).

I really love the name Theodosia. It is very gorgeous. I also like the foreign forms Teodosia, Theodosie, and Fyodosiya.
