While making a fast food run, I noticed the cashier’s name tag. Her name was Tinera (prn Tuh-neh-ruh). I thought it had a pretty sound and commented on it. she said her uncle made it up. The story was that she was born in the mid 1960’s when the [name]Tiny[/name] Tears doll was out. While she was in the hospital after birth and without a name yet, everyone noticed when she cried really loud she only had one or two tears come out of one eye. It reminded her uncle of the [name]Tiny[/name] Tears doll so he invented Tinera using letters from [name]Tiny[/name] Tears.
Has anyone else heard any great naming stories lately?
