Tawny means "green field" in Irish, "Light brown/honey color" in English and "little one" in Native American. It can also mean "princess" "strong one" "pretty" etc. There are many translations for the name "Tawny" in various cultures all around the world with various spellings. Growing up with the name Tawny, I only received compliments on the name. As a child I was hoping for a more common name; as an adult I've grown to love and embrace my unique name. Finding out the origin of the name brings me joy. I am descendant of Irish and Native Americans, so it makes me feel closer to my ancestors. It's a lovely and cute name, and I'm happy to have been named Tawny!

I'll admit that I've never been fond of the name, but I always liked how unnique it made me feel. I know I shouldn't be taking offense to the opinions of the name, because you're just talking about the name and not one particular Tawny. But, even though I give my name a rough time, I'm still fond of it. I'm also glad that there isn't some huge history with the name and we Tawny's can make it the most amazing name in the world.
Sounds like the name of a ditzy, bleach-blonde Playboy model.
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.
~Tawny.
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.
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.

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