The Name Game

I decided to research my name recently and discovered a few interesting facts I'd thought I would share. 

 TARAYN (regardless of the spelling) means:



Tender/Innocent 
Rocky Hill
Thunder
Of The Earth 
Tower 
The Reaper 
Wild Goat
To Carry 
Young
Queen
Little Princess




SPELLING



I must admit, after 27 1/2 years I'm still not totally prepared for always having to spell or pronounce it for everyone. In fact, I figured out pretty darn quick that sometimes it's easier to answer to "Karen" or "Tara" - especially on the phone - just to save time.
I reference it as my "Starbucks name"

There's just one question...Where does Taralyn come from? Ha!



Remember when you were a kid and your name was on every key chain at Alvin's Island or already painted on the pencil box at Hello Kitty?? Gosh, they were so cute with the colorful puffy paint pens! At least I was already used to not being able to find my name readily available on a keychain, an I.D. bracelet, or even stationery!

PRONUNCIATION

t(a)-ryn, tar-yn\ is pronounced TARE-en

TARE-IN (like Karen, but with a " T ").


TAR-IN (Tar rhymes with Car).


TARE-INN (accent on the 2nd syllable, like Corrinne).


TARYN, TARIN, TAREN, TARAN, TARUN, TARRYN, TARON, TARYNN,



TERIN, TARRAN, TERYN, TARYNE, TERRYN, TEHREN, THERON!



FAMOUS NAMESAKES


I discovered something else about the name TARAYN while looking up

and regardless of the spelling virtually no one really famous has ever had the name.
(Maybe there is hope :) )

Famous Taryn's include:
Taryn Davidson, a Canadian model

Taryn Fiebig, an Australian opera singer

Taryn Foshee, an American beauty contestant

Taryn Manning, an American actress

Taryn Marler, an Australian actress

Taryn Onofaro, an Australian television presenter

So, do you think there is hope? :)

I'm right there with you! The best thing my mom could find for me was bridge "tally" cards. I was like "what the heck am I supposed to do with these?!" To make it worse, she named my other 5 siblings: Ashley, Erin, Rebecca, Katie & Mark! You think they had all the cute puffy paint stuff?! You better believe they did! :) On another note, I'm curious that you're looking up your name. Do you have baby on the brain?! You sure did look cute holding John Paul! :)
