I looked up the name Dessa as it is a combo of my MIL's and my mothers name. I thought it might be a good way to honour both ( as a MN only). All I could find is that is was in the top 1000 in like 1900.
Anyone know what it means or it's actual origin??
Do you like it or does it seem "made up" ???
Thanks!on the search for the perfect girls name!

I sort of like it! It sort of reminds me of a combo of Adele and Tessa--I think I would prefer Adessa (although I'm not sure how legit that is, either), but Dessa is sweet. I think it would be confused with Tessa a lot, though, so if I used it, it'd be as a MN...
ETA: Now that I've looked into it a bit more, I think Odessa would be an attractive option, as well...Ashley
