I am querying the terms in a custom taxonomy i have with the following code:

    $term_id = 2;
    $taxonomy_name = 'rete';
    $termchildren = get_term_children( $term_id, $taxonomy_name );

      $args         = array(
      'child_of' => $termchildren->term_id,
      'orderby'  => 'id',
      'order'    => 'DESC'

 $term = get_terms($taxonomy_name, $args);

    echo '<ul>';
    foreach ( $termchildren as $child ) {
        $term = get_term_by( 'id', $child, $taxonomy_name );
        echo '<li><a class="uno">' . $term->name . '</a></li>';

    echo '</ul>';


Works fine but do not order! The problem i have is that i would like to order it by title-order or something similar.

Can anyone suggest what i need to do? Thanks.

Change the orderby from "title" to "name". See here for a list of acceptable arguments.
