My youngest daughters name is Tierney. She suits it because its not a very girly name, neither is she and it can easily be shortened to Tee, or someetimes Tia. The only downside is people sometimes have trouble pronouncing it and spelling it.
My mom's maiden name is Tierney. My aunt always said she thought it made an excellent first name for a girl.
