Words that I have Known: Tantarantana

There is that age-old question as to, “What’s in a name?” Well, if your name is Tantarantana, probably a lot of twisted tongues. This is a street in Barcelona at the edge of the Ribera quarter as it starts to go in to Born. It’s a fun name to say and that obviously wasn’t lost on a restaurant and theatre that share the same name as the street.
Overall, it’s not a bad street and is actually quite pleasant to stroll down. There isn’t too much remarkable about it beyond the name though and it’s like a great many streets in the area. If you’re a bit more curious, the street is here.
But what does the word mean? I haven’t really found a good answer to this. Most likely it was a person’s name and at this point, my mouth hurts a bit from saying it, so I’ll leave it at that. Tantarantana.

  1. Homer Simspon would say: It doesn’t have any meaning, just like “Rama-lama-ding-dong” or “Give peace a chance” :)
