    Odessa is on my extended list. I prefer it to Dessa. With that said, if it's for the MN, go with what has meaning

    I think Dessa is most likely a short form of Odessa (A Russian place name). As a middle name, anything goes, especially something honoring a family member. However, I would advice against Dessa as a first name, but it works its magic beautiful in the middle name slot.

    Just sounds like a nickname for Odessa to me.

    I would also guess that Dessa is a shortened form of Odessa.

    I know a Dessa. She is in her early thirties, successful, intelligent, artistic, and beautiful! I think it's a great name.
