   Taalennin: I'd be Tano Leithe in Seiyath, Mass.

   tano: tan 'fire' + -o masc. suffix (< OI aod -a/n)
   leithe: gen. sg. of leth 'gray, ashes'
   seiyath: sei 'chant' + yath 'bridge', from a bad analysis of Cambridge
as cantobrigia, singing bridge.
    mass < massachusetts, since I have no idea what it means.
