::: It is plausible. The question, however, is not the ending in -een, but the initial part of the word - çh- or t-. Manx pronounces the initial <t> in "Tennessee" as /t/ and not /tʃ/. I would assume that this should follow the same pattern and yield /ˌtɛnəˈsiːn/, thereby requiring a spelling of tennesseen rather than çhennesseen.

:: Okay, but how come çhitaanium (Ti), çheghnaiçhum (Tc), çhellurium (Te), and çherbium (Tb) get to change what is definitely not an initial /tʃ/ into one? [[Ymmydeyr:Urhixidur|Urhixidur]] ([[Resooney ymmydeyr:Urhixidur|talk]]) 16:58, 30 Jerrey Souree 2019 (UTC)
::: Because çhitaanium, çheghnaiçhum, çhellurium and çherbium are already in the dictionary. We try to avoid coining new words as much as possible here as that verges on Original Research, which is a big no-no in Wikipedia. We do, however, have examples of -ine becoming -een and Tennessee is already established in Manx as the name of the state. It is a simple step to amend the ending in line with other endings. To change the initial consonant is to change the word's phonology, and that is too far towards OR in my mind and is not based on the established root as used in Manx.
