There are various legends about how the Tigers got their nickname. One involves the orange stripes they wore on their black stockings. Tigers manager George Stallings took credit for the name; however, the name appeared in newspapers before Stallings was manager. Another legend concerns a sportswriter equating the 1901 team's opening day victory with the ferocity of his alma mater, the Princeton Tigers. The earliest known use of the name "Tigers" in the news was in the Detroit Free Press on April 16, 1895.. The truth is revealed in Richard Bak's 1998 book, A Place for Summer: A Narrative History of Tiger Stadium . In the 19th century, the city of Detroit had a military unit called the Detroit Light Guard, who were known as "The Tigers". They had played significant roles in certain Civil War battles and in the 1899 Spanish-American War. The baseball team was still informally called both "Wolverines" and "Tigers" in the news. Upon entry into the majors the ballclub sought and received formal permission from the Light Guard to use its trademark and from that day forth it is officially the Tigers .. In short, the Tigers most likely wore stripes because they were already Tigers, rather than the other way around which is the conventional story.. The "Tigers" name originates from the 19th century military unit that was based in the city and held the same name. They are nicknamed "the Motor City Kitties ", "the Bengals ", "the Tigs ", and "the Bless You Boys ".

The Tasmanian tiger, or Thylacine, was not a tiger, but a carnivorous marsupial. It was not related to the tiger in any way, being a marsupial, but it had a vague resemblance to a small tiger by its colouring. Its fur was grey-brown (not orange, as sometimes depicted), and it had up to 16 black or brown stripes on its back, predominantly at the tail end. The name of "tiger" was first suggested by Dutch crewman Jacobszoon who was aboard Abel Tasman's ship when he discovered Tasmania in 1642, naming it Van Diemen's Land. As several crew explored the island, Jacobszoon described seeing "footprints not ill-resembling the claws of a [tyger]". Once convicts arrived in Tasmania after 1804, they referred to the "native tiger", and the name grew from there, even though early free settlers referred to the "marsupial wolf".

No. Tigers are solitary predators. They live and hunt alone for most of the time. During mating season tigers can be found along with their mating partner. Apart from the mating season, male tigers don't tolerate the presence of other males in their territory. Female tigers can be spotted with one or more cubs when she is rearing them. After the cubs mature, they go their own way and continue living alone.

Tigers, like cougars and other big cats exempting lions, actually prefer to hunt on their own so that they don't have to share (they're quite greedy), so during spring and other times when prey is abundant they usually go off on their own or in pairs of a male and his mate. However, during heavy winters and other times of extreme famine, they have been known to hunt in packs, and live in that pack until the food shortage is over.
Unlike their relative the lion, tigers are much less social. Only coming together to mate. Females with cubs are the only other reason more than one may be seen together.
Tigers evolved as lone hunters mainly because of the habitats they occur in. Lions, being found in more open country, needed to associate to increase their chances of obtaining food. Tigers are animals of forests and jungles, and use this cover to approach prey unseen.
