Ashanti and Tanisha are anagrams of each other; they contain the same letters.
Ashanti is a male name as the masculine form is used to denote the people/nation at large. It is the name of one of the oldest and once largest nations on the continent of Africa. Their name literally tells the story of Creation expressed in Genesis, for they are "the people of God's breath."
To change the name to the feminine form, change the 'i' to an 'a'. The Ashanti were fierce warriors and the last hold outs against colonialism. Queen Yaa Asante Waa gathered her people together and fought during one of four wars to protect their independence and remain as the last large hold out against European invasion and subjugation.
