Gender: F Pronunciation: TER-sha Meaning of Tertia: "third" Origin of Tertia: Latin

Tertia—which is occasionally used in the UK, but rarely in the US, would make an unconventional but interesting possibility for the third child in a family. Terza and Terzo are lively Italian female and male variations.

This is just one of several Roman numeral names that suddenly sound plausible--like Primo and Prima, Decimus, Quintus, etc.
