So, my I thought we were going with [name]Emmeline[/name] but it just felt to frilly and long for our style. Beautiful name but just didn’t feel right for our family. Anyway, my dh finally made a list of his faves and [name]Tessa[/name] was on there. It was a name I had seen and had grown on me. So, we decided [name]Tessa[/name] was our baby girl’s name. [name]Sister[/name] to [name]Jonas[/name] and [name]David[/name]. However, our families are always throwing out suggestions and so we told them. Some were like “oh, ok.” Then some were like “We had a dog named [name]Tess[/name]…” Or we just get the awkward silence. I think it’s adorable. DH likes it. Is is bad? We don’t have a mn yet but want to get outside opinions on [name]Tessa[/name]. Thanks!

[name]LOVE[/name] [name]Tessa[/name]! It’s on my top ten. What are your thoughts for a mn?

[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Jade[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Rayne[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Grace[/name] (this one’s my fave)
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Marie[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Claire[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Elise[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Juliet[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Rose[/name]

[name]Tessa[/name] is an adorable name! I dont think it matters what you pick, not everyone is going to like it. If everyone does by chance like the name it is likely in the top 10.

[name]Grace[/name] was actually what we were going to go with! Our last name is [name]Kelly[/name] though so… [name]Grace[/name] [name]Kelly[/name]. I was fine with that but Dh had some reservations.

LOL! Very true! Thank you!


I think that [name]Tessa[/name] is very pretty, and it fits very well with [name]Jonas[/name] and [name]David[/name], and all three names happen to be five letters and two syllables, too… ([name]Emmeline[/name] is also gorgeous, but I don’t think it works as well with the names of your other children…). You and your husband love it, and your opinions matter more than anyone else’s, after all…

What are [name]Jonas[/name] and [name]David[/name]'s middle names?”

They are [name]Jonas[/name] [name]Robert[/name] and [name]David[/name] (after my dad) [name]Lawson[/name]. Thanks for your suggestions!

I love [name]Tessa[/name]. Very sweet name. :slight_smile:

I think [name]Tessa[/name] is lovely. It works perfectly with [name]Jonas[/name] and [name]David[/name]. [name]Don[/name]'t listen to what other people think, as long as you love it that’s all that matters.

[name]Tessa[/name] is definitely one of my favourites - it’s elegant, simple, but also a bit whimsical AND spunky. I adore it. Great choice

I love [name]Tessa[/name]! I like [name]Tessa[/name] [name]Grace[/name], also. But I think with a shorter name like [name]Tessa[/name], you should have a longer mn:

[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Caroline[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Catherine[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Elizabeth[/name]
[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Charlotte[/name]

Sorry for any repeats!

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Tessa[/name] as well. One of my favorites.

[name]Tessa[/name] [name]Mae[/name] is right up there on the top of our girl list. My only reservation is that I love [name]Mae[/name] so much, I hate to hide it as a mn. But [name]Mae[/name] [name]Tessa[/name] just doesn’t work!

I love [name]Tessa[/name]!

I love [name]Tessa[/name]. It’s not overly feminine but it’s not really towards the masculine side, either. I think it also goes really well with your boys’ names.

My sister’s name is [name]Tessa[/name] and she has always loved her name. She goes by her full name and we sometimes call her “T” as a nn. I have never met another [name]Tessa[/name], so I am sure it will remain unique!

Thank you all ladies! I love it so we’re sticking with it!

I [name]LOVE[/name] [name]TESSA[/name]! It means ‘late summer harvest’ in Greek. Beautiful.

My little ladies’ name is [name]Tess[/name] [name]Maisie[/name] and we were tossing up between [name]Tess[/name] or [name]Tessa[/name] and went with [name]Tess[/name] because it sounded better with her middle name (my gran’s maiden name). We use [name]Tessa[/name]-bella as her nickname.

I love [name]Tessa[/name]! It’s was my mum’s nickname for a long time, its lovely :slight_smile:
