Meaning of Teresa - What does the name Teresa means?

Name Meaning: Of uncertain etymology, Teresa is generally believed to be derived from the Greek therizein (to reap, to gather in). The first known bearer of the name was the Spanish wife of St. Paulinus, a 5th-century Roman bishop of Nola. Teresa was not used outside the Iberian Peninsula until the 16th century, when the fame of St. Teresa of Avila (1515-82) made the name popular among Roman Catholics throughout Europe. Toireasa is a Gaelic form of the name, which is also used as a variant of the Irish Treasa and Treise (strength)
