Reply to: Origin & meaning of "Dwanna" by Dwanna
and know a white woman named Dewanna. She told me once her mother had created her name as a variant of DeWanda, itself being a variant of Wanda. Perhaps Dwanna has similar origins. Everyone I have asked around me (about a dozen people - all docs and nurses right now) says they would pronounce Duana as DWAYna, like Duane, a far cry from DWAHna in Texspeak. I highly doubt Dwanna derives from Duana.
