is there any story behind it
Google Maata wasnt helping-so i aksedLOL
I was gonna google it - then I read your last line!LOL
But I found this in WIkipedia.
It is not a pure Tamil Name, that's for sure.

Subramaniam (Tamil: ????????????? or ???????????; Telugu: ????????????) is a South Indian name. It is also be spelled Subramanian or Subramanyam. The name is derived from the Sanskrit words su (??), meaning "good" or "dear," and bramanian, meaning brahmin; the name translates loosely as "dear to Brahmins."

Yeah, this can be the meaning. So Lord Muruga is dear to Brahmins. WEll he is dear to all...

Shiva wears tiger skin coz he is close to nature and prefers being away from materialistic things which he has renounced...he is a yogi n unlike jainism...hindusim does not state that yogis should not wear clothesLOLLOL...yet, he  is d most sparcely clothed god!!!Big smileBig smile

shiva is nirakar...d one reason y he is worshipped as a lingam n not in his tiger-clothed yogi form...however, he is said to have a wife, kids n family...so, stones cannot have family..lolLOLLOL...tat is y he is given that yogi look...!!!

In the ACK Elephanta, I read a different story of why Shiva wears a tiger skin.  A bunch of rishis, vainglorious about their greatness due to the devotion of their wives, become conceited, and so Mahadev & Narayan decide to teach them a lesson.  Mahadev takes the roop of a handsome youth, while Vishnu takes his Mohini roop.  The wives are attracted to Shiva, while the rishis are attracted to Mohini.  After a while the Rishis realize what's happening and try to curse the youth, but since it's Shiva, nothing happens.

Then they invoke a tiger, and the youth kills it, skins it and wears its skin.  They then invoke a snake, which the youth wraps around his neck like an ornament.  Then the youth returns to Shiva's original form and the rishis repent.

So the chaila form of Mahadev taken in Daruk van is taken from this story. Only Vishnuji wasn't with him.
