Etymology & Historical Origin of the Baby Name Tinley

Tinley is the transferred use of a rare English surname. In fact, it’s so rare that very little information exists concerning the name’s etymology. It likely comes from the Olde English word “tynan” meaning “hedge, fence”. As a surname-turned-first-name, Tinley is a new coinage. It only just appeared on the American female naming charts, probably inspired by a similar-sounding surname, Tenley.

Popularity

OF THE GIRL NAME TINLEY

Tinley’s recent appearance on the U.S. Top 1000 list of baby girl names in 2011 was influenced by the ever-trendy practice of using surnames as forenames (even if said surname has no connection to the family). In the past couple of years, Tenley has shown promise as a semi-familiar girl’s name, so it’s no surprise some parents out there started using Tinley in an effort to be slightly different. In circulation for a brief period of time, Tinley has yet to demonstrate her staying power on the charts. This one is for parents who prefer cutesy, modern names over substantive meaning or historic tradition.
