lacitygr Says:


Well the region in Greece is definitely pronounced
Th-eh-ss-ah-lee in Greek Thessalia pronounced Th-eh-ss-ah-lee-ah. The name should follow the same probs?
Also wanted to point a mistake on the background info, Thessaly is CENTRAL Greece, not northern and the both the city and Alexander's sister are spelled Thessaloniki.

Gem7000 Says:


after googling the region in Greece, I'm pretty certain it's pronounced 'Thess-uh-lee' with a 'TH', rather than 'Tess-uh-lee". I think I prefer the 'TH' anyway, makes it more unique and soft sounding

Wildmoonchild Says:


Any greek berries know how to actually pronounce this name? I much prefer Thess-uh-lee

indiefendi2 Says:


so Theresa is TER e sa but Thessaly is "thes a ly"???

roseofjune Says:


I'm annoyed that this name appears not to have a meaning. If it had one I think I'd like it more, but being as I'm not that attached to Greece, the ties are very tenuous.

whatchamacallit Says:


This name has such a beautiful look and sound to it. I just worry it will seem too trendy.

katinka Says:


Lovely name. Strong and beautiful, and rooted in history.

awheezie Says:


Is the Th pronounced like in Theresa and Thomas ??

indiefendi2 Says:


looks prettier than it actually sounds...

laurelrobyn Says:


I really like the sound of this name and don't think it sounds like Cecily with a lisp. Since it's a well-known place name I'm pretty sure most people wouldn't be too thrown off by Thessaly. It's lovely and sweet and light and feminine.

mschull Says:


Awful. Agree with a previous comment about the lisp.

mabespark Says:


This is really adorable and pretty.

vintageluvs Says:


I prefer "Tess-a-lee" as well. I think it makes it sound friendlier and more familiar. Plus, Thessaly nn Tess is really cute!

MaryKathryn Says:


I read that this can be pronounced with or without the h, does anyone agree? Do you prefer "Tess-a-lee" or "Thess-a-lee"? I prefer "Tess-a-lee".

jojobabyberry Says:


Sounds so pretty to me.

faithnamer Says:


This is a really cute name but I wonder if people would think that her name was Cecily and she had a lisp..
