Name in the News – Triphenya

I just noticed the name Triphenya in an article about Thanksgiving travel.

Triphenya Bailey, a spokeswoman at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, said she was not aware of any problems. Lines through security stayed short and moved steadily.

“It’s been a really good day before Thanksgiving. I think it’s one of the better ones we’ve had,” Bailey said.

I’m guessing that Triphenya is a twist on the name Tryphena.
