Twiggy Origin and Meaning

The name Twiggy is a girl's name of English origin.

Twiggy was the working name of English international supermodel and original 'mod squad' girl Lesley Lawson. While the name conjures images of cool 60s parties and glamour, be warned that this could be a hard name to wear as a teenager, particularly if you're not stick thin. Perhaps best to keep this one as a middle name or nickname.

Twiggy is less likely to be used in Australia, where it is also closely linked to less-than-glamourous mining magnate Andrew "Twiggy" Forrest.

I really love Twig as a boys name. Not sure about Twiggy as a girls (or boys) name, though.
