While many names with Greek origins have desirable meanings, the creators of Tessa took a more literal approach. This name means “fourth child” but is also cited with the definition of “to reap, to gather.” However, don’t let such a meaning keep you waiting for your fourth baby girl. This graceful name is often the shortened version of Theresa but has been a first name that has stood on its own since the early 1960s.
