Tanya
i quite like my name because it's not very common and i love the looks of interest people give me when i tell them my name
Tanya
I love my name Tanya and its meaning. I don't think that any other name would have suited me aswell as this one. And I loathe it when people spell it Tania, it makes me clench my jaw and sends a chill right through me, it has the same effect onme as someone dragging their nails down a green or blackboard.

My name is so EPIC. I can't find the real meaning of my name because its uniquely spelled with 'H'.So I'll stick with Tanya

I'm the only Tanya in my school, and it's exotic, so people have told me how they find it hard to forget me because my name is so uncommon and sounds beautiful. Need I say more? ;)
