Etymology

Tremlett is an English surname of Norman-French origin, derived from Les Trois Minettes, a village in Calvados, France that was apparently once the site of three mines.[1] Given Donaghan's musical profession, it may have been chosen in reference to tremolo (from the Italian, "shaking"), the rapid repetition of a single note or the alternation between multiple notes.[2]
