- Comments and insights on the name Tinder
"dry, inflammable substance," O.E. tynder, related to tendan "to kindle," from P.Gmc. *tund- "ignite, kindle" (cf. Goth. tandjan, Swed. tända, Ger. zünden). Tinderbox "box in which tinder and flint are kept" is recorded from 1530; fig. sense of " 'inflammable' person or thing" is attested from 1598.
Unusual name idea, but I like the contrast of this definition with that of the meaning of "tender." More complex, earthy, volatile, yet strong.
