(Wiki)

... The empress-queen of Louis XIV. greatly added to the fame of Thérèse, so Theresa became known everywhere, though more in Roman Catholic countries and families than elsewhere.  That it nowhere occurs in older English pedigrees is one of the signs that it was the property of a saint whose claims to reverence began after the Reformation. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884)
