I have a friend whose name is Tansy and I think it is beautiful, but I also think that you have to be a certain kind of person or the name can be to much.

This name is also used in the book 'War of the Flowers' by Tad Williams.

Tansy (Tan-zee) is a sweet little bunny character in the children's book The Surprising Armchair by Jean Gilder. I fell in love with the name reading the book as a child and now read it to my children.

In the movie Material Girls starring Hilary and Hailey Duff, Hilary plays a character named Tanzie, (spelled differently, but the same name.)

In Redwall, there's a hedgehog named Tansy. She's in Pearls of Lutra and The Long Patrol. In Pearls of Lutra, she has to find six pearls called the Pearls of Lutra as a ransom for the Abbot. Later she becomes the Abbess, and she is in this position during The Long Patrol. She made me like the name Tansy.

It's not as horrible as Pansy, but it sounds too much like it. The name sounds too girly anyway, and I can't picture it on a grown-up.

I love this name. It isn't overused like other flower names. :)

Well, it's better than Pansy. Though I'm not sure how much.

Sounds a bit 'Trailer Trash' to me.

Tansy is a plant with many medicinal uses (a lot of which have now been discredited). It's well known for causing miscarriages in high doses, leading to its use as an abortifacient in the Middle Ages.

There is a minor character called Tansy in the book The Iron King by Julie Kagawa.

The name ultimately derives from the Greek "athanasia" meaning "immortality".

I love the name Tansy. It's beautiful and really cute! I'm often drawn to flowery nature names. Tansy is definitely one of the best girl names beginning with a 't'- (along with Therese and Tia). ;)
