NAME ROOT:
THERíZEIN > THERíZO > THERASíA
NATIVE NAME ROOT:
THERíZEIN (θήρίζεἰν) THERíZO (θερίζω) THERASíA (Θηρεσία)
MEANING:
This name derives from the Ancient Greek “therízein (θήρίζεἰν) therízo (θερίζω) Therasía (Θηρεσία)”, arrived in Europe via the Ancient Greek (Latinized) form “Teresia”, meaning "to reap, to harvest, harvester (ancient name of the Greek island Thira)". Its popularity likely increased due to the prominence of several Roman Catholic saints: 1) Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, (Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu) (Mother Teresa), was an ethnic Albanian, Indian Roman Catholic nun. She said, "by blood, I am Albanian”. 2) Teresa of Ávila (Teresa Sánchez de Cepeda Y Ahumada), was a prominent Spanish mystic, Roman Catholic saint, Carmelite nun, writer of the counter-reformation, and theologian of contemplative life through mental prayer. She was a reformer of the Carmelite order and is considered to be a founder of the discalced Carmelites along with John of the cross.
