English Teresa in Spanish is Teresa.

However, pronunciation of the two have the right to be quite different. Exactly how did you pronounce her name?

Americans in the says usually pronounce this tah-reeee-saw

so if her saying tah-REE-sah of food they won\"t recognize what her name is...they would certainly hear something prefer tu risa or da risa

T has to been firm and also quick click that the tounque on her teethAlso, the R sounds in Spanish are hardtaps the the toungue ~ above the ago ofyour teeth or upper roof of yourmouth, greatly like the D sound....

Mother Teresa was Albanian and Teresa was no the name that she was born with. Once she ended up being a nun she probably embraced the name of a saint like Saint Teresa de Ávila. That name was Spanish, however.

I can not imagine any Spanish speaker no being maybe to pronounce Teresa. What precisely did lock ask you? probably they were asking what her surname was and when you provided your given name they came to be confused. Just how do you pronounce her name? prefer it would certainly be in Spanish? or Ter EE sa?
