English Teresa in Spanish is Teresa.

However, joint of the two can be fairly different. Just how did you pronounce her name?

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

so if your saying tah-REE-sah of food they won"t know what your name is...they would hear something like tu risa or da risa

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

I would suggest sayinng "tedDAY-za"

ted like teddy bearDAY, well favor dayza prefer pizza is sometimes dubbed "za" by yuppycouples (not too difficult of a z sound, just a small buzz, because it"s an semi-dental or avealor fricative between to vowels, first one the accented vowel, the 2nd an open up vowel)

Mother Teresa to be Albanian and Teresa was not the name that she to be born with. When she came to be a nun she probably adopted the surname of a saint like Saint Teresa de Ávila. The name was Spanish, however.

I can not imagine any kind of Spanish speaker no being able to pronounce Teresa. What precisely did they ask you? maybe they were questioning what your surname was and when you provided your provided name they came to be confused. How do friend pronounce her name? favor it would certainly be in Spanish? or Ter EE sa?
