- Personal experiences with the name Mathea
My name is Mathea and it is not pronounced Matt-He-A but rather Ma-Thee-Uh. My mom was so sure I was going to be a boy that she didn't bother to choose a girls name. After I was born she looked through the baby name book for female versions of the name Matthew. She came across Mathia and mispronounced it Ma-Thee-Uh. It wasn't until I started school and people were pronouncing my name Ma-Thigh-A that my mom had it legally changed to Mathea. It's a unique name and I always receive compliments but I hated it growing up. When I was in school teachers could never pronounce it on the first try. I would listen to them pause while taking attendance and just raise my hand because I knew they were trying to figure out how to say it. When meeting someone new and telling them my name they would always ask me to repeat it and then they would ask me to spell it.
