Unfiltered opinions, please!
Ran across it in a list of obscure bird names, and husband latched on to it (rare for him). I like it for the nickname Tess, but question whether it feels tryndee or like it's trying too hard. I enjoy obscure names that have a weighty ancient feel to them, and while it is Greek, this feels a bit lighter.
Pronounced the Greek way (meaning: harvester, which we rather like, or late summer, depending on the source) teh-see-uh. Not the polish way, which is teh-shuh (I think?).
