Gender: F Origin of Tennessee: Native American, Cherokee, place-name

Young rocker Tennessee Thomas has brought this former one-person name over to the girls' side -- though the census roles of North Carolina in 1850 included a female named Tennessee and called Tincy. But Reese Witherspoon's using it for her baby son brought it back for the boys.
