My understanding is that it is pronounced "THEH-kluh," not "THUH-klah" or
"THEE-klah."  (Those "th" sounds might even be different, voiced vs.
unvoiced, but I can't hear it right now.  The difference between "thin" and
"the": yes, I think they are different, Thecla being like "thin" and "the
claw" being, obviously, "the.")

But yes, I have seen the discovery of the eerie linkage between Thecla and
"the claw" a number of times over the years
