The name Teresa was confined to the Iberian peninsula (modern-day Spain and Portugal) until the late 16th century, when it spread in the wake of the veneration of Saint Teresa of Avila.

Teresa is probably originally derived from a Greek locative Therasios, Therasia 'inhabitant of Thera'. The first known bearer is the Greek Therasia, wife of St. Paul of Nola, who lived around the 4th or 5th century A.D

The girl's name Teresa is pronounced ter-REE-sah, ter-RAY-sah. It is of Greek origin, and its meaning is "late summer." Popular variant of Theresa. The first bearers of this name might have been from the Greek island of Therasia. The popularity of two saints, Teresa of Avila and Therese of Lisieux, has resulted in the creation of many variants. Mother Teresa founded an order of nuns, the Missionaries of Charity, whose sisters help people in need around the world. Her work earned her the title "the saint of the gutters", and the 1979 Nobel Peace Prize. See also Tracy. Actress Teresa Wright; basketball player Teresa Weatherspoon.

Famouse People

Teresa of Portugal (Coimbra, 1181 – Lorvão, June 18, 1250; also known as Tarasia of Portugal and later as Infanta-Rainha (Eng. Princess-Queen), was the oldest daughter of Sancho I of Portugal and Dulce Berenguer. She was also wife of Alfonso IX of Castile.

Teresa was the mother to three of Alfonso's children, but when her marriage to Alfonso was declared invalid because of a discovered familial link which proved them to be cousins, she returned to her familial home of Lorvão, Portugal. There, she founded a Benedictine monastery. Soon after, she converted the monastery into a large Cistercian convent, replete with over 300 nuns.

In 1230, Alfonso died after having several children with a second wife, Berenguela of Castile. This second marriage was also annulled because Berenguela was Alfonso's second cousin. With two invalid spouses, there was dispute among the children as to who would inherit the throne. Teresa stepped in and allowed Ferdinand III of Castile, Berenguela's first son, to take the throne of León.

After the succession battle, Teresa returned to Lorvao and finally took her convent vows after years of living as a nun. She died in the convent on June 18, 1250 of natural causes.

On December 13, 1705 Teresa was beatified by Pope Clement XI's papal bull Sollicitudo Pastoralis Offici, along with her sister Sancha of Portugal.

Teresa's Catholic feast day is June 17th.

Teresa of Portugal (pron. IPA: /tɨ.'ɾe.zɐ/ or /'tɾe.zɐ/) was the third daughter of Portuguese King Afonso Henriques and Maud of Savoy. She was born c. 1157. Around 1177 she married Philip of Alsace, Count of Flanders. Teresa died in 1218 in Furnes.
