Yeah, me too - I’d put someone with the name of Tiffany as born in the 70’s ( or early 80’s) not in their 70’s - she’s probably called Pat Smith , nowt wrong with that name but doesn’t have the air of an exotic model. My class was rife with Susans, Janes, Julies, Jackies, Karens , Traceys and Debbies. My own name Susannah was never easy to place as it was never that popular, and of course I was always called Sue, along with the all the Susans- I get called Suz nowadays and that suits me fine.
Yes l am always called Sue and l like it, seems very out of fashion nowadays.

So many threads end up with posts about names & I love them.
Fact for the day - Tiffany is an English form of the Greek name Theophania & was popular in the 12th century 😲
As if that isn't hard to imagine one of Herod's wives was called Doris. As the Q's Tiff was born in 1949 she probably became a model in the late 60s/early 70s so Tiffany Suchard as a professional name sounds right for that time. I've always thought that naming a baby is an onerous task & it's a name for life, not just for childhood. When I look after our granddaughter we watch a lot of Cbeebies & Baby Club's one of her favourites, most of the names are what you'd expect so Ian & Jean came as a surprise!

I always wanted to be Sharon, there were quite a few Sharons in my school all pretty and popular. Sorry to all the Sharons but I am glad I didn't get called that. My big brother wanted to call me Louise, my Mum kept a letter he wrote to her in hospital having me when he was 11. My Mum etc thought I would be a boy and I was going to be David. A side note my Mum was always known as LaLa! People all over Belfast referred to her as LaLa even when she was in her 50s, she passed at 60.

My aunt told me when I was around 10 that the doctor in the hospital named me Donna. Then the horror of 10CC and their record Donna when I was as school, every time I walked into class they all started singing it to me. I f*cking hated it!

My middle name was supposed to be for my granny strangely she was called Stella and born in 1900 and my Mum was also Stella. I always thought it a strange name for 1900? Anyway one of her middle names is Janet but for some unknown reason when I was christened and registered it turned into Jeanette.

Isn’t Tiffany, the name, an American import? I.e as in the jeweller? Certainly nobody with that name in my childhood! My Mother could never give me any explanation as to why I was given my name.I should have adopted the French spelling but that would have been a bit pretentious!

When I was at school there was literally only a couple of girls who had names away from the norm..one of my best friends was Nicole and was named after the fact her maternal grandmother was French, there was a Francesca and a Sara (pronounced as in the way Zara is pronounced) Nicole and Sara were often addressed as Nicola and Sarah and had to be put right. I can't remember more unusual names emerging in the children in the years below me at school. In the 80's, there was a bit of a shift when some of the older names started re-emerging... eg Emma, Lucy, Victoria, Rose, then Kimberley, Kayleigh, Lauren became extremely popular. I remember having an OMG moment when I bumped into to an old classmate who'd had named her daughter Toyah. Nowdays, anything goes, you can call them "door handle" if you want and you don't even have to tell anyone whether they're a boy or a girl -but that's a story for another day!

My mum wanted to call me Romily 'cause she thought it sounded pretty...It does..pretty awful!!!! Thankfully my dad put his foot down. He wanted Katherine which I could've lived with (it's my middle name btw) but they both liked Susannah - I don't mind it too much!

I have told this before. When I worked in the passport office back in the 90s we had some very very weird ones.

A little girl called Daisy Hooker, which sounded like a porn name poor wee girl.

Wally Chicken, who was a woman.

Quite a few had Russian names after Nikita(sp) the song. There was the story of the London office getting an application for a baby girl called Treblinka! Which is the name of a Nazi death camp! The parents did not realize this and thought it sounded pretty.

Quite a few elderly men who had female middle names which might have been a thing putting the mother's name in?

I think parents who indulge themselves with "unique" names, without considering how their child may feel are selfish. I was impressed by one of my colleagues that when they were deciding a name for their son, he and his wife tried to think about him introducing himself to someone down the pub. A very sensible approach!

I met a young man called Wing Wang a few years ago.

Ali Keenan had just been waxing lyrical about Tiff's beautiful eye colour and how amazing she looks in the TSV- Then went on to say Tiff and I are not a million miles away in age.....REALLY??? Alison is 60 so Tiff is what then?? :)
And she was telling us how she uses this product, but she would not give us a camera close up. The studio lighting was on soft focus for her, but not for Tiff.

I was teaching an English class in S. California and the word 'loquacious' was on the vocab. list. One of the female students told me that it was such a beautiful word that she planned to give it as a name to her first daughter. She didn't care about the meaning of the word, just the sound of it. (I don't know what happened, but she was a determined young woman and probably followed it through)

I once knew a woman called Lynne Long.

Normal names are becoming unique these days!

You should have a go at googling your full name.

A young girl with my name died in an accident some years back. I went into work and got oh aren't your dead? No. Poor girl.

Also, someone with my name is a lawyer in the US.
