- Meanings and history of the name Tennie
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".
