I remember Dumezil tried a Caucasian etymology for Tiberis, but I dont remember in what book.

We can always make connections between any two items but it's a real
skill to support those connections with proof of their relationship.

Tiber and Tigris are not related, and this much is an obvious conclusion
for anyone that acknowledges their immense distance. If you would
like to relate them together, you must come up with much more than
idle similarity to gain the support, empathy, agreement, or whatever
you need from other linguists.

PS: Terriers don't speak... They only make certain vowels under very
      specific conditions  :)
