"I was named by my Cherokee uncle who never had a daughter. All my life people have wanted to spell it the spanish way. I love my unique name the only problem I had was if I got in trouble somewhere and they said my name I was the only Wanita in my hometown. :)" May. 20, 2015:
"My name is Wanita, as usual most people want to use the Spanish spelling, or add an e in place of the i, as is the case in my aunt's spelling, for whom I am named after. People look at me funny when I spell it, so I have finally started telling them it is Anita with a W. They are OK with that! I like my name!" Dec. 1, 2014:
"My name is Wanita, I was named after my maternal grandmother. The name spelling this way is related to the Cherokee name Waneta ir Waneda. It means "She who charges on a horse" or just "she who charges". It is a beutiful unique name and I am glad we are all proud of it. I also know Filipino girls named Winita. A very pretty spelling as well." Mar. 5, 2013:

"i love this name! it isn't mine, but i love the way it sounds and its unique spelling. it sounds just like 'juanita' in spanish. wanita is also a malaysian word meaning "woman". so it is a real word in another language. it is not a misspelling or mispronunciation. Vanitha is a south indian name, but is not the 'correct' version of Wanita, an entirely separate name. both are pronounced differently too and of different origins. :) -cheers, pyarkaaloo" May. 9, 2009:

My name is also Vanitha.It is correct.But pronouncing it as wanita is wrong.Because I have read Sanskrit,were example is given how to pronounce a word. So don't become mad. Go to website's and do some R&D which will help u to solve ur problem.

"Have to agree and they have undertaken to give some of their proift to an Australian charity, worthy intentions which I hope works out. Most of the goods currently offered are from Amazon so I guess it's a good way to get people to buy through an Australian owned online store if the customers are aware that charities will benefit without the customer having to pay any extra.It is always a difficult decision to make as to what charity to make donations to, I prefer to give to ones that do not have crippling administration cost's that eat up 90% of any monies they receive. Anyway that's for the site to decide. I am going to go and look at the slimming shakes, going to the Whitsundays next month for a wedding so I must try andshed a bit of my ill gotten weight as none of my clothes fit me properly. I guess it's a good excuse to buy some more clothes, much to my husbands annoyance..ha ha.Thanks slimming.com.au for a great site and I will keep coming back and especially thanks for the slimming tools, they are easy to use.Joanne."

", do I want to be healthy? Yes. Am I tkinag steps every day to attain that goal? Yes. Have I realized that sometimes as you get mid-project you have to readjust the expectations and the approach? Yes!Iím tkinag a Project Management course at work an itís been helpful not just for my day job, but also my life. Am I assessing the risk of the projects I take on? Do I have backup plans? Have I considered all possible outcomes? Nope.Iím very much a ďmake a plan and stick to itĒ person Ė but that doesnít always work in life or in projects. Things change, people change, situations have new dimensions added that you hadnít thought of. How do you roll with it? Are you willing to refocus your efforts? Or do you throw in the towel and move on?Iím very interested to hear what you guys have to say Ė when do YOU give up?(not just in weight-loss Ė in anything. When is enough really enough?)"

"That's my name...I've heard it pronounced as vanita, wanida and even quanita. The Spanish, old English and Hawian root is "God is gracious, pale-skinned" and the native American is "charger". Love it! I know one other person that spells it this way." Jan. 5, 2012:
"I hate my name. I get called winnona, wanda, wendy, anita, rita, all sorts of garbage. I am betting my mother was on some kickass painkillers when she had me and just picked the stupidest name she could. Thanks ma." Sep. 20, 2010:
