- Meanings and history of the name Tijana
'TIJA-' from 'TIHA' = quiet, silent, tacit. The TIHA-na has through time come to be TIJA-na. There's a rule in Serbian Grammar that allows for it.
The pronunciation of Tijana is correct if we substitute the sound 'J' with the sound 'Y' in Anglo languages, but is also sometimes treated as a name with the silent 'J'. However, the incorrect accentuation of the name becomes more likely with the latter rule. Namely, the correct accentuation is on the last letter Tijan-a- and not on the Tija'na fourth letter as is more commonly assumed. Alternatively, the name should be pronounced as TI-JA-NA but as quick as possible between the vocals!
