    Love Tess as a nickname but not Theresa

    What other names can have the nickname Tess. I don't like Theresa as it seems too religious to me?
    Love the nickname Tess or Tessa. Ideas?

    Have you done a name berry search for this topic? I swear there was just recently a thread about this. I don't think you need a full name for Tess personally. It seems like a full name to me, just short and sweet.

    Me, too! Well, Theresa doesn't seem too religious for me (there are relatively few names I feel that way about!), but it does feel a bit too old-fashioned for me. I like just Tessa/Tess, but if you want a longer form, what about Esther or Elisabeth? I've heard of people using those with the nn Tess(a), or even Contessa or Quintessa. Elisabeth nn Tess is my favorite option atm--it's a consideration for my own short list.

    Good luck!

    I love Tess too, and I think it's perfectly fine to use in its own!! I'm loving Tess Evangeline and Tess Magdalena at the moment
