Reply to: Origin of first name 'Tambria' by Lucy Doom
My name is Tambria. I am a 48 year old female. I am german, scottish, and irish. The story that I was told of how my name came to be is: My father was an officer in the United States Navy in the 1950's. He loved the country of Australia. There are a series of islands that are part of Australia known as the Cambria, or the Cambrian Islands.
While my parents were dating, the series of movies "Tammy" staring Debbie Reynolds was popular. My mother's given name was Marion, but during my parents courtship, he would call her his Tammy. I was their first born, so my father combined Tammy and Cambria and derived Tambria.
