Tayna – Possible Baby Name?

Tayna, faint galaxy from early universeAstronomers using NASA’s Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes recently spotted the faintest object ever seen in the early universe.

The galaxy they spotted existed 13.8 billion years ago — only 400 million years after the Big Bang.

The research team nicknamed the galaxy Tayna, which means “first-born child” in Aymara, the language spoken by the Aymara people of the Andes.

I’m not sure if tayna is/was used as a personal name among the Aymara, but it’s a possibility. (Among the Dakota Sioux, the word winona, meaning “first-born daughter,” was traditionally used as a name for first-born daughters.)

The name Tayna has been given to hundreds of baby girls in the U.S. Many of the parents who opted for Tayna, though, probably had the name Tanya in mind.

What do you think of Tayna as a baby name? Do the definition and the cool space reference offset the inevitable Tanya-confusion?
