I’ve been really loving the name/nickname [name]Tess[/name] for a while now, but I feel like a fuller name would fit better on my girls’ list–any ideas?
[name]Tessa[/name] is out (The whole using a nn as a given name only to use a nn for the nn doesn’t really make sense to me. I’d just go with [name]Tess[/name] itself!), and I’m not convinced of [name]Theresa[/name] yet (although it is growing on me. It still feels a bit too vintage for me, though! But it is a family name, probably my grandmother’s namesake, since they shared a MN, which has bonus points for me). Contessa and [name]Quintessa[/name] are too out-there for me, though I can appreciate them. Any other ideas? I don’t really want anything too out-there, but I think I’ve talked myself out of all the options.
