Believe it or not, I've come across several young girls named Tigerlily recently. One is the sister of a Thel0nious -- I mention this because Thel0nious is another name that I would expect to be very rare, but have actually met several of recently. With the popularity of Lily and the familiarity of the name Tiger thanks to Woods, this name might sit in a sweet spot--seems rare but also sounds name like and familiar.
