This is sort of bizarre, but apparently there is a TV personality in Philippines who'se name is Tintin ! And apparently she is really famous.
A lot of times when I search for Tintin on the web I come across articles about her. Her name is Tintin Bersola, and there's a lot of news articles out there about her recent marriage to a fellow called Julius Babao. Hmmm, Tintin and Julius !
How can a girl be named Tintin? Anyway, I didn't really bother to read all the articles and try to discover whether the inspiration came from Herge's Tintin or somewhere else.
If anyone knows, do enlighten us.
