I came across the word "drinkle" in the sentence:

It's one of the Drinkle girls.

I Googled it, but I couldn't find anything helpful.

    Adding "definition" sometimes helps. For example, search for "drinkle definition." – user84675 Jun 25 '15 at 19:37
  • Google "define <word>" will help you define a word you don't know (but it sometimes doesn't work for uncommon words, like this one). It gives Google's own results above the regular search results (if that doesn't make sense, just Google "define example" to see what I mean). – Blubberguy22 Jun 25 '15 at 19:54

Without context, this is almost impossible to determine for sure. However, since "Drinkle" is capitalized, this suggests the sentence means "This is one of the daughters in the Drinkle family."

  • I would have taken it to mean that these females had been nicknamed "Drinkle", perhaps due to their propensity to imbibe. – Hot Licks Jun 26 '15 at 1:46
