    I’m pretty sure it’s a characted name on an animated show that my kid watches (Avatar). It’s a “no” for me.

    It’s kind of cute and unique but it sounds like a boys name to me — not a girl’s name.

    First thoughts: Tazmanian Devil or some kind of perscription medicine….

    It doesn’t pass the President or Doctor test, so no.

    I love it!  Isn’t it a pretty common name in Britain?

    It’s unusual but there’s nothing wrong with that. It s a bona fide name. I wonder if the actress you’re thinking of is Tamzin Outhwaite. That’s the only Tamzin I know.

    I think it’s different.  I don’t hate it.  (But I’m also a fan of name acceptance, so most everything is fine with me.)

    Personal preference has me picking Tamsin oven Tamzin, just because I like the look better.  Or, and I know people are going to hate it, Tamsyn.

    lovekiss:  Actually, I think you might mean Tenzin, which is also the name of the current Dalai Lama.  (I know Avatar because I’m a nerd with a nerd FI, and the name of the Dalai Lama because of bar trivia nights.)  It looks close though.

    We have someone at work named Tamson. Before people meet her, they think “she” is a “he”. That being said, she rocks the name!!

    I hate all trendy names and this fits the bill.

    There is a professor at my college named Tamsen Anderson. It just sort of rolls together kind of nicely with her last name. So you might want to think about how it fits with your last name too. I prefer this spelling or Tamson, like wanderingthoughts‘ coworker.

    I knew a Tamsyn once. I think the name is beautiful and unique.

    anonybee0810:  I love this name!  Then again, I have a unisex, often mispelled name.  When I think “Tamsin,” I see a strong, independent young woman who knows where she’s going.  Nothing about this name is overly hip.  And it could be a nickname not just for Thomasina, but for Thomasin, which is lovely and unique on its own.  

    I think the most common mispelling you’d discover would be “Tasmin,” and who cares? I spell out my name letter by letter and people still spell it incorrectly.  Anyway, I think this name would really suit a twin well, since etymologically it’s related to “twin.” Nice find!

    ilovebacon:  By trendy, did you mean old-fashioned?  Or maybe you were thinking of “Tammy” from the 1960s?  Nothing trendy about this name.
