There are 2 theories on the meaning of Towanda from the 1991 movie "Fried Green Tomatoes". The first is that Idgie felt like an outsider and was more comfortable around African Americans. It is said that she may have chosen a more African name to feel as though she were a part of something completely opposite of her family. The other theory which may coexist with the inital one is that it is a word of female empowerment. Evelyn used it for this purpose and called herself "Towanda the Avenger". As for language interpretation, I cannot specifically state what it means.
