Tavia is a feminine name of Latin origin, derived from Octavia, a famous Roman name meaning “eighth.” This timeless appellation recalls the Roman era, where it was tradition to give the name Octavius or Octavia to the eighth child. While you don’t need eight children to qualify for this beautiful name, Tavia is a subtle way of honoring a bygone era if baby happens to be lucky number eight.
