Titty is the name of a character from the fairy tale The Enchanted Canary. She is a gypsy who attempts to take the place of the princess Zizi by turning her into a canary so she can steal Zizi's love interest Desire.

I would consider this name being removed from this website, since NO one would ever use this as a given name or a diminutive anymore, especially since this name is English and "Titty" (slang) is only used in places that speak English. It doesn't bother me but it seems to bother lots of people on this website, since they grew up speaking English. My point of view is different because in my language we have slangs like "m#%*e and c@#%*e", that English speakers will not understand and they won't mind about till they learn the language.

Arthur Ransome named his fictional Walker children in the series, "Swallows and Amazons", after a Syrian family who shared his love of sailing and lived near his home on Coniston Water, UK. The real family consisted of Taqui, Susan (always called Susie), Mavis (called Titty after a favorite folk tale, "Titty Mouse and Tatty Mouse"), Roger and Bridget Altounyan. In the fictional Walker family, Ransome had his eldest be a boy, balancing the genders, John, followed by Susan, Titty, Roger & Bridget.

What a disgusting thing to call your daughter. It's like something you would call a Stripper, Escort, or Porn Star by. DON'T DO IT!

This sounds like a nickname for a character from an old-fashioned comedy/musical. Like I picture someone from the 50's or before being called this informally.

His Holiness loves the name Titty. For how could a pious 120 year old virgin not love such an eloquent name? Truly a beautiful name, full of bounce and grandeur, a name that reminds me of the fullness and ripeness of thine youth. Oh it is hard not to love a nice Titty. I would love to make a new patron Saint called Titty but I can only find this name attached to a woman on various sinful looking websites. Anyone know why?

Maybe long long time ago this name was appropriate, but in modern times the poor girl is in for a lifetime of teasing. If you want a T name go for Tonya or Tatiana or Tatia.

Hmm. Imagine introducing yourself.
"Hi, I'm Titty!"
Whoa, awkward...
And as a name, ICK. It's like naming your kid... well, you get the point. This name is horrible, and I'm sure that the comments above have already explained enough. But because I have a say too, DON'T NAME YOUR KID THIS! It will be heck for the poor thing.

Titty Walker from the "Swallows and Amazons" series was named after a real person called Titty Altounyan.

Her real name was Mavis, which is an old country word for a song thrush.

Small birds were (in more innocent times) called "Titty birds" to children; presumably in the sense of "itty-Titty" or tiny.

So her nickname was just in the sense of a small bird, and was a play on her real name.

I just thought I'd clear that up because a lot of people seem to think her name was Letitia or she was named after Scottish slang.

In traditional Scottish ballads, titty is a word for "younger sister"; which I suspect is where the Arthur Ransome character's name comes from. I really don't see a Leticia in a family otherwise consisting of John, Susan, Roger and Bridget.

Although Letitia is a beautiful name (I think), I hope no one in an English-speaking country is considering Titty as a nickname for Letitia!

Who in their right mind would name their child after a part of a woman's body?

Titti is used as a nickname for Christine/a in Sweden. It's rarely used as a full name. Titty does not mean "breast" in Swedish, so it's not so bad here.

I agree with all the comments above mine. This name is just wrong. *shudders*

This is worse than naming your child Gay! (Which, by the way, is a name on this site.)

It's not as well-known as Dick - everyone will be accused of cursing when talking to her. And it's just hilarious anyway.

Oh man, that's freakin' hilarious. That is unbelievable; the fact that someone would name a child this. Oh, that just made my day.

Don't EVER name your daughter this. She will end up in special needs.

I can't believe people used to use this name. It sounds demeaning to women.

This is a name? Wow, how stupid do you have to be to name your daughter this in modern culture where "tit" has a meaning like that? I may be rude in saying this (just read my prepared comment over), but it would be kind of dim to subject your little girl to so much teasing, eh?

I read somewhere that 'Titty' was the Italian name for Tweety Bird. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Also, what a horrid name for a person!

It's a cute name. It's a shame that it can't be used for obvious reasons.

Yes, but the world is full of immature people so some teasing and life scarring situations are bound to arise. You can't ignore the fact that this name is inappropiate and alluring to a certain part of the female anatomy. I didn't even know it was a name. Ewww!

People need to show some maturity. If a girl is named 'Titty' she wouldn't be named after a breast. This name was in existence before 'tit' was decidedly used as slang for the female breast.

I wouldn't pity a girl for having this name, I'd pity her because of all the immature people who'd make fun of her for it.

Oh wow. That is horrible! NO ONE should name their child this!

I LOVE this name! It's my best friend's nickname because when her mom was pregnant with her second child, the family was playing Scrabble and when her mom looked in the Scrabble dictionary, she saw that Titty was either Scottish or Yiddish slang for "sister." So she has been Titty ever since.

Oh no! I can't believe that has actually been used as a name! The poor women who have borne this name (and others like it, such as Fanny)! No self-respecting parent would even try this today. Calling your daughter a teat, what nerve!

This name is probably best known for its use in the Swallows and Amazons books by Arthur Ransome. Able Seaman Titty was one of the main characters in the Swallows crew who is supposed to have written the stories Missy Lee and Peter Duck.
