  1. my husband found it on the back of a movie case

  2. My husband named her Tessa Abigail. He knew Abigail would be too common for me and so he used it for a middle name. Tessa is common enough now but I didn’t know any before we named her.

  3. I have loved the name since I was a little girl. I think I first heard it from the movie Troop Beverly Hills. I debated on middle names between Mae and Jayne, then when I found out she was born on my Great Aunt Jane’s Birthday, I figured it was meant to be!
