The tawny owl (Strix aluco) gives an example of tawny used as an adjective in a name. Latin scientific names may use the adjective fulvus (or variations), meaning tawny or fulvous. An example is Cinnycerthia fulva, the binomial name of the fulvous wren.

Tawny (also called tenné) is a light brown to brownish-orange color.[1]


The word means "tan-colored", from Anglo-Norman tauné "associated with the brownish-yellow of tanned leather", from Old French tané "to tan hides", from Medieval Latin tannare, from tannum "crushed oak bark", used in tanning leather, probably from a Celtic source (e.g. Breton tann, "oak tree").[2]
