Rea is a female given name, which also occurs as a surname. The name comes from Greek mythology, where Rhea was the wife of Cronus and mother of Zeus, among others. The origin of the name is uncertain, but it is thought to be based on the Greek word 'ρεω (rheo) 'to flow' or 'ρεος (rheos) 'stream'.
The name has also been made famous by Roman folklore, according to which Rhea Silvia was the mother of Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. In more recent times, the name has also sometimes been understood as a shortening of Margareta, Teresa or Regina.
In Finland, the name Rea has been given to 1017 women from the beginning of the 20th century to the end of 2019. In addition, 206 women have been given the name Rhea and 227 Reea. The name does not appear in the Finnish calendar, but according to the Finnish-Swedish calendar, Rea's name day is 8 April. In Finland, there is also a variant of the name Reija, whose name day is 19 September.
