What do you think of this name for a boy? I knew someone named this when I was in junior high -- I think it's Scandinavian.

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!

I'm usually a fan of short, simple boy names (love Lex & Taj) but for some reason this one seems incomplete. I did know of a guy named Tellis (unsure of spelling).

I knew someone named Terrance that went by Tel. Behind the Name: Meaning, Origin and History of the Name Tel suggests it's a nick name for Terrance / Terry, too. But it may very well be a complete name from another language.

Either way, I kind of like it, but I just see it as a nick name, not a given name.

My neighbors' brother is Tell. It always sounds like she is saying Tail and I can never understand her when she says his name. I don't like it.
