    Agree with this.

    I think it's just a name and can be worn on any person no matter their color. I've seen people of all colors and tints using a wide variety of names. Try picking a name for your child that gives off qualities that you love rather than whether you think it will suit her looks. That will matter to her more in the long run.

    Thanks for the replies... and I'm really REALLY sorry if I offended anyone, I really didn't mean to. I have no idea what the One Drop Rule is, I'll have to look it up.

    The only Tiana I've ever known is a pale white girl with blonde hair and blue eyes.
