I was made fun of as well. But I could always say that I was different in my own way because not alot of people had my name. I was named after my great grandmother, her name was Tennessee and they called her Tennie for short. I love my name and wouldn't change it for the world!

Meanings and history of the name Tennie: | Edit

According to what I can find out this seems to be the feminine form of the boys name Tennessee.
The word Tennessee, is of Native American origin and is thought to be the Cherokee variant of a Creek word the pronunciation of which was probably corrupted by the first whites. The exact meaning can probably never be proven with absolute ironclad certainty, due to the fact that the knowledge of the precise dialectal source has vanished with the passage of time. Some have proposed that Tennessee is a Yuchi word that means "meeting place".
