What kind of name is Tataboline?
An extremely unusual or unique one, belonging (I'd guess) in the category of "invented to attract attention." Google turns up only Ms. Brant for that "Tataboline."
BTW, I'm not giving an opinion about her article, just pinging a few name-collectors.

Wee need to see about introducing some of these people to each other. "Mr. and Mrs. Hampig and Tataboline Sassounian" has a very nice ring to it.

Name noted and filed. Thought that Tataboline might be an Alaskan native name, but a check of the tribes and first names didn't reveal anything even close. If you do a search for Tata and Alaska, a large number of results will appear. I did find a first name of Tata and one of Bollin, whatever use that may be. I once read that a woman named her daughter Cellardoor because she liked the sound of the words. Maybe Ta's (that's her nickname) Mom just liked the sound of it.

I seem to collect unusually-named girlfriends. If that's really her picture, I'd be happy to add her to the list.
Can't blame a person for whatever weird name their parents gave 'em.
