Help with Thaissa combos

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] all, I’m still working through my girl’s list and trying to narrow down which combos I like best. Today’s name is Thaissa. It is pronounced like tah-EE-suh, but in [name_u]America[/name_u] will also likely get ty-EE-suh. I envision this name as beautiful, fresh, striking, and memorable with an international appeal. I think it is one of the harder names on my list to pull off as a first name in the US, but not unusable. Side note: I like the slightly more common variants such as [name_f]Thais[/name_f], [name_f]Thaisa[/name_f], and [name_f]Taissa[/name_f] but I’ve decided that Thaissa is my favorite!

I’m unsure as to which kind of middle name I want to pair it with. I definitely want something that complements that striking and memorable look and sound, but also have considered a less striking name to balance out how unusual it is in an American context. Of course, the difficult thing is I think it also sounds great with a lot of the middle names on my list. Therefore… I have a lot of possibilities. I can make an argument for every single combo on this post!

Any input on these Thaissa combos is appreciated. Which ones are your favorites? Which don’t work at all? Why or why not? Rank them from fave to least fave, make a love/like/lose list, describe the combo with emojis or words, etc.!

I looove Thaissa (any variant!), a severely underrated Shakespearean gem imho! ([name_m]Pericles[/name_m] is a weird play but [name_f]Thaisa[/name_f] is a cool character)

Lose

Thaissa [name_u]Cerulean[/name_u] - don’t love the repeating ‘s’ sound in the middle there
Thaissa [name_f]Christina[/name_f] - feels rhymey
Thaissa [name_f]Coraima[/name_f] - I like them both separately, but that’s two ‘difficult’ pns together
Thaissa [name_u]Felice[/name_u] - rhymey
Thaissa [name_u]Keely[/name_u]
Thaissa Lisanne/Lisette - bit too sibilant for me
Thaissa [name_f]Madita[/name_f]
Thaissa Shaylene
Thaissa [name_f]Vanessa[/name_f] - again, a lot of Ss

[name_f]My[/name_f] favourites are Thaissa [name_u]Laurel[/name_u] and Thaissa [name_u]Vivian[/name_u]!

Thaissa is very cool!!

[name_f]My[/name_f] favourites are:

Thaissa [name_f]Holiday[/name_f] - something quite magical about this

Thaissa [name_u]Keeley[/name_u] - unexpected but still very mystical and intriguing

Thaissa [name_u]Laurel[/name_u] - same as above, feels poetic

Thaissa [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] - adds that more grounded feel while also remaining striking

Thaissa [name_f]Misty[/name_f] - very cool vibes and story-book feel

Thaissa [name_f]Rosaline[/name_f] - sort of Shakespearean and sleek

[name_f]My[/name_f] least favourites:

Thaissa Shaylene - they don’t compliment each other imo

Thaissa [name_f]Vanessa[/name_f] - don’t compliment each other + rhymey

Thaissa [name_u]Julie[/name_u] - [name_u]Julie[/name_u] falls flat here

[name_u]Love[/name_u]

Thaissa [name_f]Fay[/name_f] - It adds on to the magical aura of Thaissa!

And the rest are in the Lose category. I like a lot of names that I have mentioned in the Lose category, but the flow doesn’t work most of the time i.e Thaissa [name_f]Vanessa[/name_f].
