Meaning:Era; Time; Generation
Despite being one of the most commonly used words in the English language, the name The is one we seldom see. Its roots help explain this: in Sino-Vietnamese, The is a gender-neutral name meaning “era,” “time,” or “generation.” The Chinese name Zheng is stylized as The in Indonesia and is typically used as a surname. It may also be connected to the Greek Thecla, which is generally attributed to girls and refers to a 5th-century Irish saint. This beautiful name allows us to see “the” in a totally different light and is a unique choice for your budding flower.
