Long-held as the personification of virtue, Teresa is a feminine name that reflects warmth and restorative nourishment. A Spanish variant of Theresa, Teresa is thought to derive from the Ancient Greek theros, meaning "summer." It's a fitting name for a summertime baby or even those born with a sunny disposition or a golden halo of hair. Yet, Teresa's similar ties to the Greek therizein, "harvest," adds more life to this enduring name. It seems Teresa is one who embraces vitality, renewal, and brighter days, illuminating the way for those aspiring for something more.
