Origin:Latin
Meaning:Goddess; good fortune
Dea is a feminine name of primarily Latin origin that celebrates the beauty of change. Forged from the Latin dea—the inspiration for the word "deity"—Dea means "goddess" and is most synonymous with Dea Dia. As the Roman goddess of fertility and growth, Dea Dia received much honorary worship alongside the revered Ceres in the hopes of a bountiful harvest. And while there is little doubt that young Dea will be subject to much admiration in their lifetime, the name's potential Irish origins ensure the added gift of good fortune. As a variation of the ancient clan name Deághaidh_, Dea could mean "good fate" from the elements _deagh, "good," and ádh, "luck."
