    I like Quintessa in theory, but I doubt I would ever actually use it or recommend it to someone. Does Tess work as a nn for Temperance?

    My name is Tressa, and I had a friend who fondly called me Contessa.

    I like the sound of it, but I don't like that it's a title. I certainly do like it better than most other title names though.

    I agree about the title thing. It has a charming sound, and several sweet nns (Connie, Tess/Tessa... she could probably pull Estey out of it, too), but it sounds just as title-ey as Prince, King, Count, or Viscount would. There's also Quintessa?

    Honestly, though, I do like it. I think Benton, Arwen, and Contessa sound cool together.

    I like Tessa but Contessa reminds me of a snobby woman.

    I have heard of a child named Contessa before. By an Hispanic family.

    I don't hate it, but it is a bit like naming a child Duke, Prince, Deacon, etc. I wouldn't say it's unusable, but it depends on your location.
