The word parts "tingen" and "tiengen" are used as suffixes to village names in Germany, Norway and Holland just as 'burg, 'borough, 'ton, and 'ville are used in the U.S. The "t" is silent and the "i" and "e" are both pronounced as a short "i" in English. It was explained to me by a German physician.
