Pronounced \tah-WUN-nah\, Tawanna is a name of Native American origin ('tan hide'). The name may have Chinese and Swahili origins as well.

Tawanna is also a Slavic expression, meaning "The tribe of the Vandals." The Vandals (or Wendlas) were an ancient Slavonic tribe whose destructive behavior gave us the modern term 'vandalism'. This name may or may not be related to the similar name of a princess found in 18th-century Polish folk tales.

Variations include Tawana, Towanda, Tawanda and Tiwana.
