Graham: "\bigger sounds better when opposed to \smaller"

Me: "We already have \teeny \tiny \small \large \huge, so let's keep
\larger iso \bigger".

You said that after I said \bigger, and it's a good reason.  So
now I'm also for \larger.

And for completeness, \teenier \tinier and \huger. [Ducks]

But seriously, assuming one can remember the set of choices without consulting the manual, how can one remember which of \teeny or \tiny is smaller? (The Wiktionary editors consider them synonyms.)

And how definitive is Wiktionary? As an *English* (as opposed to *American*) speaker, I would have automatically assumed that teeny was teenier than tiny :-)
