Personal experiences with the name Tanith: | Edit

MY name is Tanith. My mom got it from a movie waay before I was born. "Tanith" was a main character. At that time, she named a cat Tanith so she would remember the name. When I was born, I got the name.
I hated it when I was little because I couldn't get stuff with my name on it, but as I got older I realized it was really cool because it was different and memeorable.
However, my mom couldn't remember the name of the film and all I ever knew about it was that it was from a horror movie and the cat thing.
When I got to college, I had a friend who was really into horror movies but he had no idea what the movie was that my name is from. THEN I met my now hubbie who was/is really into old horror movies AND he's named after the actor Christopher Lee who was in quite a few horror movies in the 60s and 70s. He didn't know what the movie was either.
After we'd been together a couple of years, we were randomly looking through a movie "encyclopedia" and saw my name. So, we found the name of the movie AND found out that Christopher Lee IS IN the MOVIE!It's called "The Devil Rides Out" (AKA "The Devil's Bride").
