100 Word Challenge: Your name here
Teresa Elizabeth Dean
I was born Teresa Elizabeth. Like Tara I have spent my life trying to get people to spell Teresa the way mine is spelled. I have no “H” in it. I was named after both grandmothers and really hate my name. Maybe if they pronounced it the way it is in Italian, my grandmother was Italian and it is really pronounced Ter – asa, long A, I might be able to tolerate it, but I would still spend my life telling people how my name is pronounced.
I wish they had chosen Elizabeth as my first name and not the middle.
