    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!
    Mom to Alexander Patrick (10), Madelyn Esther (7), Genevieve Susan (2), and angel baby Theodore James (stillborn at 37 weeks on February 3, 2014).

    Hoping to welcome another little one into our family in 2015.

    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.
