    Question Tesia ?

    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?).

    It is just okay for me. I much prefer Tessa, but I can see the appeal of a more unique, ancient-sounding name. Definitely love the nickname Tess!

    I think it's an interesting twist on Tess/Tessa. I would use Cassia over Tesia, but I could see Tesia fitting in with today's names.

    Just out of curiosity, what list were you looking at?

    I like Avocet from that list (more than Tesia), but it was "too weird" for hubs.

    My first thought was Nicola Tesla. Sounds surname-y to me. Not a fan, sorry.
