To find a Chinese character, you must know in what dialect is the pronounciation given. It may also be a good help to know tone the pronunciation has got. Your spelling suggests that the name might be spelled by someone from Hong Kong rather than Mandarin-speaking areas.
I did check up the 100 most common surnames in Mandaring Chiense, but didn't find anyting more similar to "Tee" than "Tian".
