Spanish First Names: Tecla

     Joan Ubeda of Barcelona is promoting Santa Tecla, the patron saint of Tarragona, as the patron saint of Internauts, who use the teclado (keyboard) made up of teclas. I said it was a silly name, and that I had never known a woman called Tecla. Linda Nyquist says her mother had a friend by that name. Do any Spanish-speakers know a woman called Tecla? People with ties to Tarragona? Please reply, so that I may tell Joan he has a ready-made group of supporters.
