Meaning:Lover of God; Friend of God
As lyrical as a song and steeped in history, Philothea is a feminine name of Greek origin. Meaning “lover of God” or “friend of God,” it is a beautiful moniker that can honor your faith. Philothea is composed of the two Greek elements phílos or φίλος, meaning “beloved,” “loving,” or “friendly,” and theós or θεός, which means “divine” or “God.” This name was made famous by Saint Philothea in the 16th century, who was a Greek Orthodox religious sister, martyr, and saint. Philothea can also be easily shortened to Phil or Thea as doting nicknames for baby.
