The modern day given name for a female, which stems from the name of the Phoenician lunar goddess, 'Tanit', who was worshiped as the patron goddess at Carthage, and is recognized as both a heavenly goddess of war and virginal mother goddess of love. Characteristically a girl prone to intense emotions, intellectual curiosity, a stubborn temperament, but also a tender heart. A Tanith is often kinder and more forgiving of others than she is to herself, and likewise both gives and expects too much of herself and others.
"You forgave him after that?! Wow, what a Tanith thing to do."

"I tried to get her to stop beating herself up about her mistake, but she was much too Tanith to listen."

To sleep.

It can also be used as an adjective "schlumphy" to describe the feeling of being extremely tired or sleepy.

Can alternatively be spelled schlümph, using the German umlaut above the <u>.

Origin: A malapropism formed accidentally in a moment of extreme tiredness, by an American, combing the German word for sleep "schlafen" with the German word for a Smurf, "schlumpf".
"I need to schlumph before the party."

"No, I can't go out; I'm way too schlümphy to drive."

"Sorry I missed your call; I was schlümphing."
