try having the name tennille spelt tuneil... but i quite like it. i too cop the 'wheres the captain?' jokes but i have learnt to come up with witty remarks like 'i am the captain' (lame i know, but hey i made it up when i was 12- give me a break!) through high school i was known as the captain- mind you no onem not even myself has heard any songs of captain and tennille. So now for the origins. My mum said she took the common indian boys name 'sonneil' (sorry not sure of spelling) and adapted it to tuneil. an indian friend of mine actually said in old stories there was a great indian princess called tuneil (again not sure of exact spelling) and she led a great life, fell in love with a pauper and had a terrible death... much like romeo and juliet only the indian version... anyway any thoughts??? thanks
