Personal experiences with the name Buffy: | Edit

My given name is Elizabeth but I have always been called Buffy. When I tell people it's a nickname for Elizabeth, they always think it's so strange and original, but I personally know two other women whose nicknames "Buffy" originated from Elizabeth, so it can't be that original!
