Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Sound most important.

Tessa di Fera is meant to be an Italian name, specifically a woman's Italian name from the 15th-16th Century. Starting with Tessa as a given name, there are five instances of women named Tessa from the census of 1427 in Florence. This was found through the Academy of St. Gabriel, which referenced the Online Castato which is a compilation of names from 1427-29.

The "di" is an alternate form of "de", meaning literally "of" and this is common in names of the time.

"Di Fera" is visible on a coat of arms from Mantua. The arms and name can be seen at www.coblaith.net/Names/ItSur/FE.html by clicking the link next to the di Fera entry. This link was found at the Academy of St. Gabriel as well. The tale referenced here is pulled from the Codices Iconographici 266-280 from Italy in the 16th century, uploaded to the internet for perusal.
