This name is VERY popular in many francophone countries, I knew many girls with this name abroad. There was a French girl who came to the U.S. the year before I left named Fanny and everyone made fun of her and slapped her butt. I can't imagine what they would be slapping in commonwealth nations. :-0

I would name my child Fanny if I lived in a francophone nation, other than the unfortunate association, it's really cute! Fanny is a very polite word for butt anyway!

Hm. This name is still quite popular in France. It has even been in their top 100.

Fanny has also been used in France for a very long time. (Provencial diminutive of the name Françoise). [noted -ed]
