I had a cousin named Dessa, and she was born in 1896. I think it is an attractive name. I actually had 2 cousins with this name, and the other one was born in 1901. I really like it.

Absolutely love this name. Wally Lamb used it for one of his characters in I Know This Much is True. Is it too weird for real life?
