    I really, really want to love Therese. It is pretty in French, but I just can't seem to get excited about it. I do love the nn Tessa/Tess though and I think it goes spectacularly with the other names in your signature. Also, since Therese has a stress on the last syllable, it a wonderful middle name choice to create a pretty flow.

    Thanks everyone! I thought Therese might be a hard sell... Any other opinions?

    I can really appreciate Therese. I guess it's cliche, but I love it in combos similar to Marie-Therese.

    I love Therese. I think it's beautiful, meaningful and classic. I don't know about nicknames, I would probably just use Therese without shortening it. Tessa is cute but more suited to Theresa.

    I like Theresa more. I've just found Therese very difficult to say. I think Tess makes more sense for Therese, rather than Tessa, since it doesn't really have the "A" sound in it. Tish doesn't really appeal to me, and it's not a very intuitive nn for Therese, but it's not bad.
