  • For the city? Yes, it is a lovely name. For a child? Not necessarily. It's one thing if you have a strong connection with the city or with Tennessee. It's another thing if you just like the name. It'll result in your child (or you) being asked about their name constantly and if you're answer is "I have no ties to Tennessee, I just like it," people might think it's weird lol.

  • I've never heard it on a child, but it's not a gross or ugly name to try.
    Will you be using it on a boy or a girl? What middle names do you have in mind?
    I imagine it would be a good name for a girl with a middle name of perhaps Suzanne or Lynn or Alexandria.
    Let us know!
