Comments for TANYA:

The meaning of Tanya is God's Gift.

I think it's a lovely name, but that could just be because it's my mother's name. She gets upset when people try to call her "Tonya", which is the common pronunciation but hers is pronounced just as it is spelled: TAN-ya. It just flows from your mouth like a song.

My name is Tanya. I pronounce it "Tonya". I find it really annoying when people pronounce it TAN-ya. I read the other comments and figured I'd add one myself. Never really liked my name because when I was younger I was made fun of because of my name. They called me Petunia. You think that would seem bad since it's a beautiful flower but I didn't like it.

This is my name. I followed the history of the name to Titus an Etruscan king before Romulous -- this may or may not be true. Contrary to many name books Tanya DOES NOT mean fairy princess. Tatiana was the name of the fairy princess in Shakespeares "Midsummers Nights Dream," and I believe that this is where the impression that this name means fairy princess came from.

The name of the fairy queen in Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream is Titania, not Tatiana.

My name is pronounced "Tahn-ya" I have always thought that it would be better spelled "Tawnia OR Tawnya" I do not like the spelling "Tonya" because to me, that is "Toen ya"

My name is Tanya, and I pronounce it like Tonya. A lot of people either pronounce it wrong, or spell it wrong. Someone once pronounced my name as Tainya, and someone has spelled it like Toyna. I don't see how it is that hard to spell it. :P Sometimes pronouncing might be hard.

I much prefer the Tonya spelling over Tanya. The other spelling of Tonya is much prettier. It means Priceless.

My name is Tatiana. I get tons of complements on it, but it's difficult to shorten. I refuse to go by Tanya since people would definitely say TAN-ya, which I don't like at all. I don't care for it with a long vowel either, for that matter. People give me all sorts of stupid nick names though like Toddy and Tati (Ta-tee). Oh well! Most people just call me by my full name.

I love the name Tanya, I also like the other form Tonya. A very pretty name. I'd consider this name if I ever have a daughter.
