Tereza is a female name.
Tereza is a Czech, Portuguese, Bulgarian and Romanian variant of the Greek name Theresa. Theresa probably originates from the Greek island Santorin, which was once called Thera or Thira, or from the neighbouring island Therassia or Thirassia.
Tereza means “from the island Therassia”, “inhabitant of Thera”, but as well “huntress” (from ancient Greek “theraein” = to hunt or “thēríon/θηρίον” = huntable/wild animal) or “harvester” (from ancient Greek “therizo” = to harvest). Another meaning of Tereza is “summer” (from Greek “theros/θέρος”).
