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 derived Tambria.
