Tuppence Origin and Meaning

The name Tuppence is a girl's name meaning "two pence".
This quirky British nickname-turned- real-name is most famously borne by English actress Tuppence Middleton, who was named for her mother Tina’s childhood nickname. There is also a British literary namesake in Agatha Christie’s fictional detective Tuppence Beresford, whose real name is Prudence.

The word “tuppence” is a colloquial term for either the pre-decimal twopence coin, or a 2p coin in modern decimal coinage. It is also found in several British idioms to signify something of little worth, e.g. “I don’t care tuppence” (= not at all) or “to give one’s tuppence worth” (= put in one’s two cents).
