This name is old-fashioned in a refreshing way. Kind of like wading in a clear, cool pool on a hot, sunny day.

Teresa is so beautiful! I prefer this spelling to Theresa. :)
Teresa Stolz (born 2 June 1834, Elbekosteletz, Bohemia – died 23 August 1902, Milan) was a Bohemian soprano, long resident in Italy, who was associated with significant premieres of the works of Giuseppe Verdi, and may have been his mistress. She has been described as "the Verdian dramatic soprano par excellence, powerful, passionate in utterance, but dignified in manner and secure in tone and control".
Teresa Mattei, also known as Teresita (1 February 1921 – 12 March 2013) was an Italian partisan and politician. Born in Genoa, in 1938 Mattei was expelled from all schools of the Kingdom of Italy for openly criticizing in her classroom the Racial laws. Graduating in philosophy at the University of Florence in 1944, she joined the partisans under the nom de guerre of Partigiana Chicchi. She took part in the murder of philosopher and Fascist minister Giovanni Gentile. After the war, Mattei was a candidate for the Communist Party to the Constituent Assembly, in which she served as a bureau secretary. Mattei was the youngest to be elected to the Constituent Assembly and was thus called "the girl of Montecitorio".
Teresa Landucci Bandettini (also known by her Arcadian name Amarilli Etrusca; 11 August 1763 – 6 April 1837) was an Italian dancer, composer of extemporaneous verse, and poet, who is remembered as the Figurante Poetesca ("literary ballerina"). In 2002 it was discovered that the young composer Niccolò Paganini had dedicated six long lost sonatas to her.
This is my name and I love it! It’s not super common where I live. I’ve only met three other Teresas, and we don’t live near each other either. I’ve always loved my name, it’s pretty, it can be cute, I love the meaning and the way it looks and sounds. Any name could easily go with this! Teresa Rose, Teresa Claire (like me), Teresa Ava, Teresa Marie, Teresa Anne, etc etc. I am named after St. Teresa of Avila, who is one of my Dad’s favorite saints, I love all the quotes and stories attributed to her. If you are considering this name for your child, I highly recommend it! The only downside is that it gets misspelled and mispronounced often, though I’ve never encountered anyone doing this maliciously— Theresa and Therese are just more common. My name does get misspelled with an H a lot of the time, but it just takes a simple correction. Unfortunately, some people try to nickname me as “Therese” or “Terese” (pronounced Ter-Reese), but it doesn’t happen often and again, it just takes a simple correction. I love this name, I definitely want to give it to one of my future children as a middle name.
This name reminds me of Barbie. I prefer the spelling Theresa.
Also Galician: --- "Admite a variante Teresa."
Better than Theresa.
Also Catalan: [noted -ed]
Teresa is spelled without the “h” in Asia where I was born; but in Canada, it’s often misspelled as Therese. The name reflects my serious nerdy side, but I prefer my nickname Terry, which suits my youthful and witty comedic side. It’s easier to pronounce, and more easygoing to break the ice with people.
In 2018, 49 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Teresa who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 126th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.

I was named after the 1950 chart topper on Hit Parade - Miss hit maker - Teresa Brewer. Best known for her signature song Music! Music! Music! This American singer recorded 600 songs in all genres.
From what I understand, this name is pronounced with an "S" sound in America and a "Z" sound in Britain. I'm American, so I've only ever heard it pronounced with an "S" sound.

This is my name. I got Teresa Jean and my fraternal twin is Lisa Jane. I am now 54 years old and I have never been through a time that I have disliked my name. It doesn't get spelled correctly very often and I usually get asked if it has an H. I was often called Terry in jr high school, upsetting me and a teacher always seemed to get a kick out of that, as she continued to call me Terry no matter how many times I corrected her. I am always thrilled to have it pronounced correctly. Many pronounce it with 2 syllables Tree sa but it is actually 3 syllables. I hated when my sister called me Tessa and wouldn't stop when she knew I hated the teasing. Overall, I love my name and am thankful my parents gave it to me.
Teresa Agnes is a character in the Maze Runner series. She was named after Mother Teresa.
The name is also used in Iceland.
Super duper common. I had a friend who had 6 cousins all called Teresa, after the grandmother (Apparently if you were named after the grandmother, you got certain inheritance advantages). To differentiate, they had to call them a nickname, or by their first and second names together. It was a bit weird. Sort of greedy too, naming your kid after granny not to honour her, but to get stuff when she dies. Ick.
Teresa is not common. In 2018, it ranked #794 most popular in the United States. It’s not even in the top 500. My name is Teresa and I’ve only met three other Teresas in my life, and one of them doesn’t even live in the same state as me. Please don’t judge this name because your friend’s aunts and uncles wanted your friend’s Grandma’s stuff. This name actually has a lot of saintly associations (there are at least four Catholic saints names Teresa) and means “summer” or “harvest”. It’s not icky or common and doesn’t deserve to be associated with your friend’s aunts and uncles wanting your friend’s Grandma’s stuff. May I ask, did you even meet any of all the Teresas you mentioned?
The first time I had discovered this name was when I was little and I found out Teresa is a friend of Barbie. XD It's not a bad name. :)

My grandpa called my grandma "Tre" pronounced "trey". I thought this was cute (: If my cousin has twins, she's going to name one Theresa but call her "Tree." If not, this one's nickname is going to be "Reese". Love that!
This is really a lovely, classic name. I don't think it will ever lose its charm. And like others said, way better than Theresa.
A very pretty name, and I also prefer it spelled this way, without the H.

It is also in Greek usage where it means 'reaper' and in all my baby name books (I have loads) it is the same.
I've always liked this name. It's pretty and not too common.
My name is Teresa, which loosely translates to 'harvester (reaper)'. I used to hate it, but upon doing more research I found that 'harvester' or 'reaper' is a very basic idea. The more developed version is:the harvester, one who gets back what she gives. By giving hope, life and fertility, she will receive the rewards in her lifetime. Everything comes in a circle. It's not about death or destruction, but about giving and providing and ultimately being rewarded for hard work.I like that idea much more, and I love my name.
I'm not sure if this is right or not but in Claymore, the main character is named Clara and an important character is Teresa. The names of twin goddesses who appear in holy scriptures. Teresa comments that both of them had loving parents since they were named after the goddesses that stood for purity. So their parents wanted their daughters to grow up like that and be pure.
Well, something like that, I'm not sure if it's true but when the other person said that it means "harvester" and to be careful naming your children, well you should (people usually live up to their names). You could just say that it meant the goddess Teresa instead of harvester. Then if you do choose Marie for the second name, then it could mean "a pure living fragrance" or something like that.
Anyways, it just bothered me that someone made a good name like this seem so bad. It's a nice name and not overused at all (I've only met one Teresa that was in my brother's grade).
