“Teton” is actually the exact french translation for tit, a kind of less-mature word for breasts. It comes from the verb “Tèter” which is the act of sucking liquid out of something, like breastmilk.
Also, “I like motorboating in the Grand Teton” totally makes sense.
“Téton” means “nipple”, and only means “tit” via metonymy. (source: I’m French)
My bad, I meant ‘synecdoche’.
