Tiffany is the most beautiful name a female can have, most Tiffanys I have come across are special people. So be blessed if your name is TIFFANY!

I was blown away after reading the brief description of the history behind the name "Tiffany", and I'll tell you why. I make jewelry (I know, how funny, Tiffany's jewelry) and I wanted to call my company Tiffany's Epiphany. Here we have Tiffany being the traditional name given to girls on the holiday, Epiphany, which happens to fall on Jan. 6th. My birthday is on January 15th. Now look at the reason for the holiday. I am a Christian, so that was the icing on the cake for me. Just thought I'd try and share my experience with you all. Also, Tiffany means "appearance of God". It's a very powerful name and I would feel priveledged to meet any of you others out there. But if you've noticed there are not to many of us out there (I haven't met too many anyway). You are all very special ladies!

At first I hated having the name Tiffany because there was always at least three Tiffany's in my class. But as I got older, I grew to appreciate it more, its meaning and everything else about it.

I think it means strong and smart and hot!

I have always loved my name. All Tiffany's that I've met have all been so pretty and sweet as myself.

How interesting! I love medieval names or names related to them. I have a cousin named Tiffany, and a neighbor (who moved away recently) named Tiffani, except she spelt it with an I. I didn't really like the name till I got a little older. I love it! I am also a Christian.

I find it quite facinating that I was born on January 6th 1978 and given pleasure of being named Tiffany. I have always wore my name a sense of pride, to me it represented a subtle beauty. My father gave me that name, having no notion of its religious significance, it's simply touching.

Tiffany (along with Jessica, Melissa, Ashley and Vanessa) is fairly popular in the town I live in, as well as the surrounding towns. I can't say that I love the name, but I don't hate it.

I am a Tiffany... I was supposed to be born early January, not sure of the exact date, because I was early! Like most Tiff's I had things to do, places to be, people to impress! :-)

My name is spelled Tiffanie. I am very proud of my name. I love that it is symmetrical and has eight letters. My name to me seems very noble, especially the way it is spelled. When others call my name they say it softly. I feel very special, artistic, and creative when I consider my name is Tiffanie. I think it is a beautiful name.

To me, Tiffany is a name of someone who likes to go shopping! It's not my favourite name, I don't like the hard TIFF sound.

This name is very pretty and elegant. I just love the meaning of this name.

Though I very much dislike "Tiffany" (along with Jessica, Ashley, Melissa, Stephanie, etc.), I like its first form (stated on its etymology). I know of a Tiffany, who's name is spelt "Typhani". Still, I totally despise this name.
-- Pheadirean  5/31/2006
I can not stand this name. I think it's obnoxious and low class. I loved it when I was little, but now it just sounds tacky.

Tiffany is actor Richard Gere's middle name.
-- BtNfan  6/27/2006
Not doing it for me. Every Tiffany I've ever known or seen is fake and trampy and dyes their hair blonde. Sorry.
-- trayc53  7/24/2006
I really hate this name. It's too fluffy.
-- ladyknight  7/26/2006
I was surprised to see the wonderful origin of this name, because these days it's the quintessential slutty ditz name.

My name is Tiffany. I have always loved my name. I haven't met too many other Tiffany's. I love that my name is somewhat unique.
-- luvmygirls0406  8/9/2006
Tiffany is my name, and I have to admit that I am not that fond of it. I have never liked my name, mainly because I don’t think it’s a pretty or feminine name. The only thing I liked about my name growing up was that there were not a lot of Tiffany’s around. I didn’t meet another Tiffany until I was in grade 11, and when I graduated high school, there were only two Tiffany’s in my school. I always appreciated having a unique name, and not a popular name like Jennifer or Jessica.
-- TiffanyS  8/17/2006
It's strange how pretty that the original name is and how wholesome its meaning when I will probably always associate this name with ditzy harlots and bimbos (no offence to anybody with this name).
-- gaelruadh19  8/24/2006
Tiffany appeared on the top 1000 list in the 1960's. Its most popular year was the 1980's where it ranked 11.

Hi. My name is Tiffeny, a spelling of the name you may not have seen before I know, lol. Anyway I have read a little about what the name means etc and I would agree that Tiffeny's do have a tendency to tell lies. And although I was born 9th December I was early. I was actually due in January I think!
-- 2k6Tiffeny2k6  10/5/2006
Though I've never personally known any Tiffanys, I'm not fond of the name. When I hear of it I think of a girly girl. Or a prissy poodle some reason. The name just has a frou-frou sound and feeling.
-- Missy  11/19/2006
Reminds me of a child or teen growing up in the late 80's to 90's, maybe it's because of the show "Saved By The Bell". I seriously don't know why though, it's not so popular today anyway.
-- bellaboo  11/30/2006
I don't think I'd use this on a person in this day and age. You hear Tiffany, and you like "diamonds." I wouldn't even give it to a cat (mainly because I can't think of a cat that would suit it) but I think it's a bit out of date now.
-- Sophie-Lou  12/17/2006
I've never really liked this name. I don't like the way it sounds. I don't think it's beautiful or elegant. It makes me think of someone who is indecisive or insecure. But I'm not going to judge someone just because of their name, though. That's just unfair.
-- scarletquillraven  12/28/2006
Just think of all the elegant Medieval girls, with their Celtic dresses and long hair dining in castles (obviously only the nobles) and maybe some peasant girls in the Peasants Revolt along the way. And today it is associated with "ditzy" girls. Shame really. Popularity kills everything. Why is it when a nice name is discovered by a generation it is stuck on every other baby born to them?

Tiffany Trump is the daughter of The Donald and his second ex-wife, Marla Maples. Whether that's a point for or against the name, I leave it to you to decide.
-- elizabeth hamlet  2/9/2007
I don't think that Tiffany is an ugly or bad name at all but I think of it as a very over-used 80s name. My mind refuses to associate it with anything else.
-- Anonymous User  2/13/2007
With all due respect Tiffany is a bad name and anyone planning to call their child Tiffany is plain crazy.

I named my daughter Tiffany. I knew that she was special even when she was in my womb. I have read most of the comments about girls named Tiffany. And yes you can find ones with the attitudes, and sassiness, and maybe a woman working as a stripper, but unfortantely we don't know why they act they way the do, nor can we down someone for the way that they have to live to survive. Just because your name is Tiffany, we shouldn't put anyone in a classification!
-- songstress2000  4/14/2007
Tiffany is also a surname, e.g. Charles Lewis Tiffany, founder of Tiffany & Co.

This is a cute, preppy name for a girl. While not my favorite name, I love its meaning. I was in a drama a few years ago, and played the part of a girl named Tiffany - called Tiff - who was trying to get away with cheating on her history test by writing the answers on her arm/leg/belly etc. But made the mistake of writing the answers with a laundry marker! She was a charming smart-alec, with a care-free disposition. Playing the part made a lasting impression on me, and gave me my opinion of this name. I must say that I do love the nickname Tiff. And I think this name would go well on myself, despite my not being preppy. I think it could also represent a strong woman of God, who is a loyal friend with a great sense of humor.
-- Georgia_kh  4/18/2007
Has everyone forgotten the 1980s teen singing sensation Tiffany? (Tiffany Darwish) I assumed she was the reason the name got really really overused in the 80s.
-- visitor27  4/21/2007
My name is Tiffany, and my parents named me Tiffany because they thought it was a pretty name. I've met many Tiffanys in my life, and each and every one of them (including me) are unique individuals. Theophania sounds royal, elegant, and high class. Tiffany reminds me of TIFFANY&CO. Which is a company which has a wide variety of precious jewellery. Like the company, Tiffany is a unique and special name. I think it's a beautiful name, and I am PROUD to be named Tiffany!

Anyone who thinks everyone with the name Tiffany (or any name for that matter) is automatically ditsy and blonde are crazy! My name is Tiffany and I don't act ditsy all the time. I just can't stand how people do that, sorry if I offend you but it's the way I feel.

My name is Tiffany, my family lived on an American Base in Okinawa, JA and my mother knew a little girl that lived down the road from them named "Tiffany," so she decided to use it herself! That is how I got my name. I love the meaning "Image of God" or "Appearance of God." (same thing)

I personally like my name, can't say I always have though! I think it's a great name, not used often enough this day in time, but I hope it'll recycle itself again soon as most names do! Hollar to all the TIFFANY'S out there! We have more fun!

THEO means God or Lord, Phanie, related to phonix, or phone; to hear (or to OTIS). Tiffany means God hears or to hear God.

A blonde, poodle-haired chick who cheerleads and, when not cheerleading, wears legwarmers and a terry headband. She says "like, gag me with a spoon" entirely too much (at all, in other words).

Tiffany comes off as a trashy '80s name to me. Interesting that it's a medieval name, though I still hate the name.
-- out of the sky  1/6/2008
Tiffany is my name and I'm not a trampy, ditzy blonde. I may not like the way my name sounds but I love the meaning. Apearence of God. I'm not a cheerleader either. Neither is any other Tiffany I'v met. Tiff is my favorite nickname.
-- tiff107  4/8/2008
I think that this name is beautiful, but it is dated and I had some bad associations with it so I will never use it.
-- Anonymous User  4/29/2008
This name sounds hopelessly ditzy to me, like the name of a cute, yet spoiled, dim-witted upper middle class girl. The name is pretty much über-girly, and I can't imagine this on any self-respecting woman past the age of 20. This was quite appropriately the name of the utterly superficial, vapid, and extremely stupid girl Tiffany on the series Daria.
-- slight night shiver  5/10/2008
I've only met one Tiffany and I've kinda gotten used to it. I don't really associate it with a stripper or trailer trashy either (that's Brandi and Crystal).
-- JellyBee  5/21/2008
I agree that it sounds tacky. Such a trendy, low-class name. And it can't even be remedied by a good nickname! Tiff? Iffie?
-- amishigloo  6/25/2008
Firstly: This name isn't common. I've only met 1 in my life.
Secondly: It's not trailer trash snobby stripper material. If that's the sort of name you want to bash, try Clementine or Crystal.
Thirdly: As far as nicknames go, there are thousands. The one I know is nicknamed Annie from the last two syllables of her name. Iffie is something we never use, occasionally Tiff or Tiffin.
-- GarbageGuy  7/5/2008
Gorgeous name! Soft and pretty. I have only known 1 Tiffany my entire life and she definitely did not live up to the ridiculous stereotype. I am considering it as a middle name.
-- kookiemonster71  7/10/2008
This name is totally dated. I think it's forever attached to the Seventies and Eighties. This name is only suitable on a cheerleader or teen singing sensation (like Tiffany, the singer). And it's even worse when people spell it like Tiffani, Tyffani, or Tyfanee. No offense to all you Tiffanys out there!
-- bananarama  8/17/2008
Ashley, Emily, Hannah, Sarah, and Tiffany all have one thing in common: overused.

I really dislike this name. It sounds trashy and cheap. Still it is very popular! Go figure (?!)
-- Anonymous User  8/26/2008
I'm torn on this name. :)

On one hand, I love it, because it's my middle name. My family has this thing about giving a mother's maiden name as a child's middle name, so me (I'm a girl), my father and my grandfather's middle names are Tiffany, after my great-great-great something Grandmother, who was part of the Tiffany (jewelers) family.

But on the other hand, like many people have said, it just attaches itself to a 80's girl with the wild hair, wearing leg warmers and a leotard.

It is interesting that it's a medieval name though, and I love the meaning. :)
-- Bannanapie  9/20/2008
This name is quite unique, but I've always seen it as a chav name. Probably because of Tiffany Mitchell in Eastenders, which is considered to be a chav programme. I can't imagine an old biddy with this name, but in years to come, all the old grandmas will be called Tiffany, Tracy, Stacy, Rochelle and the likes.
-- Anonymous User  10/25/2008
I don't favour it. We have three Tiffanys in our class, and no less than fifty in the school. How could you give it a nickname? fanny? tiff? toffee?
-- reina  11/2/2008
Not every name needs a nickname, though some probably disagree with that statement. Anyway, the most common nickname is "Tiff". (For those of you wondering.)

This name is horridly UGLY. I cannot stress that enough.

My name is Tiffany, I however do not think that Tiffany is a ditzy "Blonde" name. I have always loved the fact that you could shorten my name to Tiff or Tiffy. And also I do not think it is overrated or outdated. I love this name.
-- Anonymous User  2/10/2009
Unlike other overused names (Jessica, Emily, etc.) I can't see anything nice about this name. It seems infantile and ditzy to me. The spelling, too, looks way, way, way too modern. Other spellings, like Typhani, look old fashioned and elegant, but this spelling reminds of a sparkly poodle! (God knows why!)
-- thecookiemonster  2/21/2009
Not a favourable name for me. This is slightly ironic because in middle school there was a girl with this name who loved to spread gossip and ruin people's friendships, and even before that I had that stereotypical ditzy platinum blonde impression. The ironic part is that my birthday is January 6th.
-- margs66  3/22/2009
I don't like it. Especially because it ends in FANY like FANNY.
-- Anonymous User  6/16/2009
It's funny that someone called this a "blonde" name, because all of the Tiffanys I've ever met all had dark hair! (And several of them were actually Black.)

I'm not sure about the generation being born in the new millennium, but from the 1980 to at least the late 90s, there were TONS of Tiffanys being born in America, and the name became overly common. Now, even though being "overused" in my generation has ruined (for me) the charm of names like Ashley, Emily, Sarah, and even Stephanie, Tiffany still sounds beautiful--overuse can't change that.
-- erb816  7/25/2009
Very trashy, low-class-trying-to-sound-upscale name along the likes of Crystal, Brittany, etc. Hate it.

I knew a Tiffany once. She was dyed blond (sorry but she was), constantly wore pink, entered beauty pageants, loved shopping and expensiveness, and was standoffish. It's funny how people fit into name stereotypes. Another Tiffany I knew was sweet and fun. She didn't fit the Tiffany type, so she went by "Tippy" instead.
-- JW41926  5/4/2010
I like it, though it's not the best name out there. It's much better than some other 80's names I've heard.
-- Black_X  5/5/2010
My name is Tiffany, and I have to admit though I love the name it does bring to mind some unfortunate stereotypes. I think if you get past that it is really beautiful- and I just love the meaning. As for popularity, I've only met two people with the name, both were born in the 80s. I've never met anyone born after that with this name.

Tiffany is a lovely and sweet name for a girl. My daughter is called Tiffany Rose and it suits her so much, she is beautiful girl with blonde hair and blue eyes. I don't think it sounds cheap, trashy or chavvy. I think it sounds beautiful and classy.

My name is Tiffany. I used to not like my name when I was younger because I thought it was a white girl's name and I was named after a white character on General Hospital named Tiffany. Now that I'm older I love my name! I have met more black women with my name than white women. I get comments about my name, people always say it's a sweet name and I agree.

Tiffany to me is ugly sounding. I think of the bearer as being a stupid, ditzy girl or woman.
-- Missy  1/6/2012
This my name and I hate it since I was five years old. Maybe names like Ashley and Madison is still good to use because they're old. But 90's wore this name out. There to many references the jewelry store, the movie and the singer. It is just too much so please don't use the name because your daughter is going to be a butt of many jokes about this stuff and if you do oh well that's your problem don't say you weren't warned when you gave your daughter this barbie like name and she became the complete opposite. All I know is as soon as I turn eighteen I'm going to change my name to Heather. At least I actually had a chance to get away from this diamond related name.

The ultimate bitchy cheerleader name. It sounds so ditzy, and tired after hearing it so many times.
-- zaki95  9/14/2012
I actually know a really goth girl named Tiffany, its hilarious. The name itself is a complete stereotype, and doesn't seem like it'll fit anyone that isn't under the age of twenty one, a cheerleader/bratty blonde haired girl who wears too much makeup... I know that sounds really stereotypical, but its what I think of when I hear "Tiffany". So when the person doesn't fit that description, the name just doesn't sound right on them. But that's just my personal experience, however I know only one Tiffany (thank goodness) I really am not a big fan of this name, because it pretty much has its own personality right up there with Brittany and Ashley, and quite honestly, a ninety year old woman named Tiffany or any of its even worse variants like Tiffani or Tiphanie is a complete joke.

It sounds snooty, preppy, and very dated.
-- Lolth  6/2/2013
Very nice and beautiful name, great meaning, and sophisticated. I read the awful comments here and they are nothing but absurd. All the Tiffany's in the world do not give a bad impression. How many are like that out there anyway? If you meet a nice, credible Tiffany you probably wouldn't care about her name. You might even start to like it. Those negative comments are stupid, probably coming from demented people, so who cares what they think. And if you ask them what names they like, those names would probably sound much worse than Tiffany.

My name is Tiffany, and I was born in the 40's. Know anyone with that name born before me? It was a neighbor's last name that my mom thought was pretty. It was unheard of when I was growing up, but now I like it. Any reference to ditzy blondes {i'm brunette} or strippers just make me laugh!
