It means mischievous in African, but I'm not sure which language.

My name is Tunesha. My father named me after the country Tunisia. All of the variant spellings I have encountered belong to women whose parents had the same motivation in their choice, changing the spelling because people have a hard time saying Tunisia (I actually met a girl with the original spelling and no one said her name correctly. Always saying 'Too-nee-see-a' instead of 'Too-neezsha'. It doesnt exactly roll of the tounge.)
So if you want to really find the root of the name, discover what 'Tunis' means =]

We named our daughter "Taneisha". She has just turned three. She's very clever for her age and outspoken and confident. We live comfortably. So no, not from the ghetto. Do not think it is trashy at all. I would never have given my daughter a name if I thought it was! My husband chose her name and I love it.

I think the name is pretty, but I think that it works well as a nickname. Despite the fact that it's not always true, when the majority of people hear this name, they think of the ghetto.

Anything with the suffix "sha" sounds ghetto to me, sorry. Tanya is a nice name, Tanisha is not.

How about Natasha? I think it's a very classy name. Or at least used to be, before the suburban American yuppies started to use it on their offspring although they had absolutely no relation to Russia.
