There's no G in Tarlinton
My one liner since I married
I married Derek Tarlinton in 1999 at a time when I wasn't sure if I should keep my maiden name or take his name.
I was Therese Barron, and if you knew me in high school, I was Terri Barron. Which is what I get called when I go back to Brisbane to see friends.
Therese is of a French origin means harvester. According to the Germans it means 'to reap, gather.
I do love these means as I have spent my life trying to create opportunites out of nothing. To collect information, learnings and data and store then for future use. To take the raw skill set I have and use it in a different way.
To reap means to receive something as a consequence of one's own or another's actions.
To gather, well my interpretation is the tribe I have around me. The people I find on life's journey who I enjoy spending time with and then introduce to others for them to grow their circle as as well.
There is only one Therese Tarlinton in the world so it shouldn't be too hard to find me but clearly you might hear it and think it's spelt a different way.
If you heard me say my name on a podcast, how would you spell it?
Here are all the ways it's not spelt.
Terese Tarlinton, Teresa Tarlinton, Taresa Tarlinton, Tareece Tarlinton, Trees Tarlinton, Theresa Tarlinton, Thereze Tarlinton, Terri Tarlinton, Terry Tarlinton, Tracy Tarlinton, Tess Tarlinton, Teresita Tarlinton, Therese Tarlenton, Therese Tarlington, Therese Tarleton
