Old Spanish for Tres Lenguas (Three Tongues). Most plausible answer is the three tongues or three forks of Terlingua Creek, on which the town of Terlingua Ghost Town was founded in the Big Bend Valley of Far West Texas.

Three times or Thrice is an English equivalent of the Latin word 'ter'. Language is an English equivalent of 'lingua'. So the word refers to the existence or use of 'three languages'. The word 'ter' is pronounced 'tehr'. The feminine gender noun 'lingua' is pronounced 'LEEN-gwah'.
Trelingue and Three languages are respective Italian and English equivalents of 'trelingua'. The Italian word is pronounced 'tray-LEEN-gway'. It's formed from the number 'tre' for 'three' and the feminine gender noun 'lingue' for 'languages, tongues'.
