To be completely honest I don't think we know. George Lucas basically threw the name Tatooine in because there was a local town where he was shooting with a similar name. Lore wise I think someone would have to create some bit of lore and make it canon unless i am mistaken and there is some explenation for the languages of star wars. George Lucas isn't Tolkien.
