Little Topsy from Uncle Tom's Cabin, by Harriet Beecher Stowe. I think that's where it originated from.

Not famous, pretty nugatory actually, but there is, or was, a South African author of kiddies' fiction called Topsy Smith.

Two things: Smith is pronounced Smit, and this Topsy is a man.

Even if you ignore the obvious fact that this name would lead to topsy-turvy jokes, the name sounds really silly, unattractive, and immature.

I think it makes a sweet nickname for Topaz.

Topsy from the old children's programme Topsy and Tim.

Reminds me of a potential name for Peter Rabbit's siblings. Flopsy, Mopsy, why not Topsy?

Sounds like a good name for a rabbit, hamster or some other sort of small animal.

Ick, I don't know. I think it sounds like a common name for a disease that has an unpronounceable scientific name. Weird, but it's what I think of when I see this "name".

I always think of the song "Topsy Turvy" from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
