This is very common in Sweden too, more so than other related names. Tessan is a common nick name. [noted -ed]

Therese is the middle name of my grandmother as well as of one of my aunts and my older sister. I hope someone in my family uses it as a first name; it's so pretty.

Therese is an elegant, classic, beautiful name. I love it.

I love the "Ter-EES" pronunciation! It looks and sounds very elegant and sophisticated. ;)

I like this more than Theresa... especially pronounced "Tay-rez," but "Ter-eece" is good too.

Therese is an adorable name; definitely underused! It works well for all ages, and sounds very cute. I like it better than Theresa, probably because it's less common. Also, it works as a nice middle name, because the emphasis is on the second syllable (Ter-EES). I usually don't like names ending in the "EES" sound, but for Therese I think it sounds nice.

My middle name is Therese after St. Therese, and I have to say people have made fun of me for the pronunciation before. They used to say "trees" instead of Therese. But I don't care because I love it! Very delicate and pretty.

I found it very interesting that all the offered pronunciations drop the h. It has an h, so the h should be pronounced in my mind; of course I am biased. My mother was reading a story with primary aged children about one of the St Thérèse's when she was pregnant. She took off the accents and then pronounced it the way her students sounded it out (American English) - "The rees." I really like it because it is exactly what it looks like. However, since most people either drop the h, add an a at the end, or both, I quit caring how others said it at about 10 and answer to anything close.

When my kids were in school there was another mother with the same spelling who pronounced it Treece (like Fleece, not like trees) and a teacher who also pronounced her name that way, but spelled it Trice.

I know a 23-year-old lady with this name and she's rude and bossy. But I do know a 14-year-old named Therese and she's nice. You can't judge a person by their name of course though and I still like this name.
