Personal experiences with the name Tinsley: | Edit

Named my daughter Tinsley Jo in 2013. Jo is my middle name, Tinsley is my mother-in-law's maiden name, they're from Georgia. I was not in love with it at first but you know how a name becomes someone rather than just being a name, I love it now. The number of different nicknames she is called by my husband and I, her sister, and all her cousins/aunts/uncles is astounding. Tinsel, Tinseltown, Tins, Tin-Tin, Rin-Tin-Tin, Tinny, Tinny shoes, Tee-Tee, TJ (middle name Jo) or lil Joey, Tinners, Tiny Tins, Tinsy. Tinsley is a tongue twister, hence all the nicknames I think, but it definitely grows on you and we really love it.
