My sister has an odd name as given to her by my father. He read in a book called "Scend of the Sea" by ???, and it's Tafline, and it's also pretty unique in that there's hardly anyone out there who shares it (I once jokingly told her she's not living up to the potential of her name when I did a Google search on it and found that most of the Taflines out there had PhD's and Masters). I reckon it's related or bastardized from the Welsh Taffy, which is their form of David. However, I'm not one-hundred percent sure on this and would appreciate it if anyone had some insights, thought, or ideas on its origin.
