I love this name! It's beautiful. Almost sounds like an Indian name.

A famous bearer is Tawny Kitaen, model and actress. I find it strange that her first name is made up but her last name is real (born Julie Kitaen).

Tawny is an Irish name meaning a green field; the warm sandy color of a lion's coat.

I can't say I find this name very pretty or pleasant-sounding, especially with a Southern drawl that makes it sound nasal and like ''TAAH-nee''. I've gotten the impression that this is actually more of a redneck name anyway, and it makes me picture a worn out-looking young woman in far too youthful and tight clothes who speaks in an annoying nasal drawl.

Trashy streetwalking name. As far as colour names go, Violet and Scarlet are leagues ahead.

I read it's also a Gypsy name meaning "little one".

I think this name would only sound right in an English accent. Us Americans over here would probably make it sound trashy instead of elegant.

It sounds trashy and slutty, and not very professional in adulthood.

A tawny owl is a type of owl. It is all different shades of brown and black, with white feathers around the eyes. Very pretty.

This name actually sounds quite nice in my English accent, it's spunky and cute, but still a little immature for a grown woman.

Tawny is a cute name - I really like it! I think it would be best as a middle name though.

Tawny is a type of owl.

For the benefit of American Tawnys, when you go to England people will pronounce this to sound sort of like TORN-ee, as in the word 'torn', but with less emphasis on the R.

For some reason, this name reminds me of a blonde cheerleader type girl. It's not the most intelligent sounding name. Although I have to say, it's loads better than Ashley or Brittany.

Love, love, LOVE this name. It reminds me of "fawn", which is my favorite animal, it's cute, and not particularly common, which just makes me love it even more.

A lot of these comments are extremely rude. My name is Tawny and I always get complimented on my name. Also, this website says to leave a useful comment about the name, and saying that it sounds slutty isn't useful at all.

My name is Tawny and it may not be the most prettiest name but it is rare for someone to have a name like this. I mean when do you come around and hear someone have the name Tawny and I would rather have Tawny as a name than a most common name that everyone has. And the people who are saying this name is ugly and any other mean comment are extremely rude. I know it's your opinion but it's not right to say that you dislike this name cause it sounds slutty.

Sounds like the name of a ditzy, bleach-blonde Playboy model.
