Meaning:Gift of God
Mathea is the feminine form of the much-loved masculine name Matthew, of Hebrew and Greek origins. If you feel baby is a miracle from the Divine, you may love Mathea’s faithful meaning, “gift of God.” Mathea ultimately comes from the Hebrew Mattithyâh and the Greek Matthaíos, where names like Matteo (Italian), Makaio (Hawaiian), and Mathieu (French) come from. Saint Matthew was one of the 12 Apostles of Jesus Christ and wrote the Gospel of Matthew. Whether you wish to welcome baby to your faith or simply adore its romantic lyricism, Mathea is an elegant choice with an everlasting appeal.
