Meaning:Upholder of teachings
Tenzing is a gender-neutral name of Tibetan origin, coming from the moniker Tenzin. It translates to “upholder of teachings,” and has become a popular choice for bundles of joy in India and Nepal. Tenzing also has links to Tenzin Gyatso, one of the titles for the 14th Dalai Lama, and can be a great choice if you plan on sharing your faith with baby. For an adventurous touch, your little one would also be sharing the name with Tenzing Norgay, the mountaineer who was one of the first two people to reach the summit of Mount Everest. If you can already sense that baby is going to tread new grounds and break barriers, Tenzing can make for an elevated choice.
