Its source is a Slavic expression meaning "The tribe of the Vandals."
The name Twana ranked 2266th in popularity for females of all ages in a sample of the 1990 US Census.
Though this name appears on the 1990 U.S. Census lists, it is used by only a small percentage of the general population.
The Vandals (or Wendlas) were an ancient Slavonic tribe whose destructive behavior gave us the modern term ''vandalism.'' This name may or may not be related to the similar name of a princess found in 18th-century Polish folk tales.
