Comments and insights on the name Tarina: | Edit

saw this site looking for girls names that started with T and I saw my name.. finally...i never see it! Turns out that no one has because no one has written anything about this ever so uncommon name!

I actually pronounce my name wrong. saying Trina at the starbucks line. I actually never emphasis the A... saying TA- rina. However when I want people to actually remember my name I say if my last name was bucket my name would be Tar in a Bucket. They usually never forget that.

It's not a difficult name it's just not very common so people never really know it or what it is. It's usually a spelling out kind of name. I didn't like it as a kid but as I got older I really liked it because it was so unique. I usually get the reaction Oh I've never heard that before.

Spelling it it's always methodical. Like I say Tarina. Then I go with TA - RI - NA.. emphasizing the N because I've gotten Tarima.... but most of the time I get Trina.

Personal experiences with the name Tarina: | Edit

Generally get the Oh that is a pretty name. once I correct that it isn't Trina but a slight A changed the name completely.

I've only ever met one other person with my name and oddly enough she had the same middle name Dawn. So there are two Tarina Dawn's in the world... which that was just super weird.

Nicknames for Tarina: | Edit

No real nicknames but a lot of people call me T. I usually tell kids to call me that cause they can't really say my full name. my younger sister used to call me China but that's just sheer cuteness.

T is usually the nickname. a lot of my family calls me that. probably cause that's what my mum calls me.
