My daughter was goofing off at the computer and decided to search meanings of Tia. The results were interesting.
TIA = Transient Ischemic AttackA TIA is caused by a clot; the only difference between a stroke and TIA is that with TIA the blockage is transient (temporary). TIA symptoms occur rapidly and last a relatively short time. Unlike a stroke, when a TIA is over, there’s no permanent injury to the brain.
TIA = Truth in AdvertisingRequirement by the Federal Trade Commission as well as various state and local government agencies, that advertisements not make misleading, false, or deceptive claims.
TIA = Thanks in AdvanceAn Internet/texting term
TIA = Aunt in Spanish
TIA = This is AfricaTIA was used this way in the movie, Blood Diamond.
TIA = Princess in Greek
Except for the mini-stroke and Africa references, Tia suits me quite well. I believe I present myself honestly (Truth in Advertising) and show gratitude (Thanks in Advance). I’m sure my husband would agree I can be a princess from time to time, and I am Aunt to four nieces (number five is due in January) and three nephews.
To make my name more unique, Mom put Cher as my middle name. Why, you might ask. It's simple... she was watching The Sonny & Cher Show when she went into labor. Hey, it could be worse. I was born in 1972, and the seventies were known for some, shall we say, interesting names. *smiles*
What does you name mean? Does it suit you?
