Wow, this is really pretty. I usually follow Greek mythology, but I have never heard this name before.

It is pronounced "Tha-lass-uh". It is the root word for Thalassemia, an unfortunate genetic blood disorder.

I'm not keen on the sound of this name. I can see a child with this name having to constantly pronounce it out for everyone

This name actually isn't that crazy, compared to Renesmee and North West...
