Isabella_188 Says:


I've met a nasty, bratty girl named Sofia, and she bullied me throughout my childhood. I remember that she hated being called Fifi, so that's what I called her!

Bellaheidi Says:


This makes me think of poodles and Yorkshire terriers. In fact, I only knew it as a dog name until I met a girl named Sophie/Sophia (was awhile ago, can’t remember, sorry) who went by Fifi. At school. Really changed my stereotypes about this name, though I still dislike it. It can definitely work on a human.

Fifi Forget-me-not, "Fifi and the Flowertots"

Annabvella Says:


I've only known one person named Fifi, and she was annoying, made everything about her, sensitive, and extremely DUMB. (she claimed that she didn't know her birthdate, the day, the month, the year, what time it is, simple math (even 2 + 2) and so on. So, I envision anyone with this name to be either really dumb, or a dog.

My daughters name is Sophia and we call her Fifi! Everyone comments on what a sweet nickname she has...and it suites her to a T. She is petite and very feminine; it just fits! And we have never had anyone comment about a French poodle.
