Surprising how much use the name is stil getting. I did not expect it to be in the top 1000. Not bad. I haven't met a little in quite some time.

Say what you will about it, but I love the sound, TIF-a-nee. It sounds so joyful and carefree, like skipping through a meadow. Might be a stretch but I like Tilly as a nn.

True 😃

tfzolghadr Says:


I believe it was Top 10 for the year I was born. But right you are... the trends are different. Had it not been so popular, I probably would have liked it more. Because once a name becomes so popular, you also lose ownership of it (to others with the name, movies, songs, etc.).

paulapuddephatt Says:


Yes, I think we have similar trends, but not identical. Jessica is viewed as very dated in USA, but I believe it is still in our top 10 girls' names here. It wasn't popular here until the 90s. Sometimes names get popular here first, and sometimes in USA, and other times, we just have different trends altogether. I don't think Tiffany has ever been mega popular here, although it was reasonably popular in the 80s and 90s. 😃

tfzolghadr Says:


It was quite popular in the US. There were 3 in my class alone. That is, quite probably, why it is regarded as an 80s 'trendy' name in the US...

tfzolghadr Says:


I've used Tiff, but it happens to also mean 'a spat'. Not really the best nickname, because you get quite a few jokes when other kids figure that out... Moreover, Tiff seems a bit juvenile to use in real life (unlike Liz, Maggie, etc.).

paulapuddephatt Says:


I just remembered that I did meet a Tiffany, years ago. I think she's the only one, though.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I love both of them. I love both Deborah and Tiffany as names, also. Debbie Gibson and Tiffany are close friends, and have toured together. They were never really rivals. That was just a media thing.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I don't know any. Maybe it wasn't as popular in the UK - not sure. I mainly associate it with the singer - love her. I think it's a beautiful name.

Periberry Says:


i know 5 people with the name tiffany.

paulapuddephatt Says:


I like Tiff. Paula really is hard because my only nickname options are Paul, which is seen as a boys' name - well, it is one - and Paulie, which just adds to the Pauline confusion. I envy people called names like Catherine and Elizabeth. So many options...! 😃

paulapuddephatt Says:


Lovely name - do associate it with the singer, but love her, so see that as positive - think it's pretty and could come back into style, but don't mind if it doesn't, as love hearing it now and again

I like it but I prefer Tawny.

xhart Says:


If your mother was born in the 80's than your likely too young to be on this site. And Marlz81 isn't wrong, the name Tiffany does scream 80's.

TheSlothPrincess Says:


Tiffany is the kind of trendy name that did not age well. It does not bring to mind a very nice or intelligent person.

RoddyThlayli Says:


Never been a fan of Tiffany. Not sure why.

RobHeathers Says:


I still 100% prefer Tiffany over Debbie (Gibson).

Actually, Tiff rocks!!

Saffron_Rice Says:


Tiffany was used as a version of Theophania in medieval England, rather as Audrey was a version of Etheldreda - I think people who malign it as tacky are being unfair to an historic name.

Marlz81 Says:


This is such a 80's name

MichelleTherese Says:


A nickname could be Annie, no? Or Tani?

MichelleTherese Says:


Such a beautiful meaning to this meant Epiphany in England centuries ago. A lovely choice for a January baby or religious parents. People need to forget whatever silly characters on t.v. carried this name decades ago. Those characters are gone but the dignified history and lovely sound of this name remain.

bustedhoney Says:


I have a friend called Tiffany and we call her 'Tiff'. I associate it with glamorous, smart office-type women for some reason! I also feel that it suits brunettes better than blondes... I guess because I've only met dark haired Tiffany's. I think TV has given it a bad reputation... with dumb cheerleaders. Love the name! It just sounds glamorous to me.

I often wish my parents had chosen a different name for me. I often (extremely often) get comments about how Tiffany does not fit me. Apparently, it's closely tied to blond, cheerleader, brainless types. A big downside is that there are no good nicknames... so there's nothing for your daughter to fall back on if she hates her name.
