I set up a manufacturing facility in Tijuana, so spent a lot of time there. A long-time Baja resident told me that there was once a very popular whorehouse there operated by "Tia Juana" = "Aunt Jane." The whorehouse was a popular cowboy destination, and was, itself, better known than the town, so the name "Tiajuana" persisted.
Good story, which may or may not be true.
