The Palmer family discovered they were having a girl in early 2309. After consulting a baby name book, they choose the name "Tiana," which meant "princess" because after five boys the new child would be the princess of the family. (USS Baldwin: Ronax, "Two of Us")
Background[edit | edit source]
Both Tiana Ripley and Tiana Ingrum were named after an acquaintance of USS Baldwin author Richie Kennedy, based upon the meaning of her name ("princess"). The meaning of the name was incorporated into the storyline.
