Extremely ugly and looks like marijuana.

The "Ta-" prefix isn't meant to have any meaning - it was more likely inspired by other feminine names that begin with Ta-, like Tamara and Tanya. And of course Juana is Spanish in origin, but like several other names from continental European languages (most often French and Spanish) it has gained some currency in African-American communities. Antonio, André and Monique are other examples of Spanish and French names that are more popular among Black Americans in the context of the USA.

It's ugly, ghetto-riffic, sounds too much like Tijuana. It also makes me think of the ghastly Tawana Brawley.

Why is "ta" a popular prefix? It's just the feminine form of "your" in French. This would sound ridiculous to a French person, as all these names would. Would you call your daughter "Yourjuana"?

I think this name sounds cute. I'm strange like that, I know. It just appeals to me.

This is one of the most ridiculous ghetto names I've seen. Juana is not an African-American name to begin with, and I really don't get the need to shove a silly prefix to every single name. It sounds like soime sort of weird article like 'the'. I am THE Juana, and THE trash, as this name is THE ghetto. If you get my drift.

This name sounds Spanish instead of English.
