Tanaquil is the Latin version of the Etruscan name "Thanchvil", which means "gift of Thana" (Thana presumably being a lost Etruscan goddess).

Due to the historical significance of the name (from the 7th century B.C.E. Etruscan nobelwoman and prophetess who founded the Etruscan dynasty of ancient Rome) the name has come to be associated with a domineering, ambitious woman.
