So: what is teiru? To be honest, for me it was just a made-up word. It happens to be the name of an important island in a fantasy novel I am working on. Chapters from that work may appear in writing.
I was seeking a short, unique name to use for a hobby web-site that I could use as an outlet for my creative side. I did a google search on the word and discovered that teiru also happens to be (among a few other things) the Japanese equivalent of the English -ing ending. One site defined it as the state of being.
Personally, this sounds pretty cool, as this site represents my state of being.
