Tawni is a girl's name of Irish and English origin. It's rooted in the surname Tawny, meaning "a green field" and "golden brown." Following the Norman Conquest, this name traveled to England, landing on the beaches of Yorkshire and Essex. It's been charming to-be-parents ever since! Continuing its color-infused meaning, Tawny is also a word to describe the warm, sandy hue of a lion's coat. You may also think of the tawny owl, known for being a fierce protector of its young.
