Well, from personal experience I know that just about everyone (teachers/family) ask you whether you know the importance of the name or how expensive the actually spice is. It can get annoying. Also I know that just about everyone I meet says "I love your name!" It's quite flattering.
For some reason some people find it hard to pronounce Saffron, I libe in Ghana and my name is always being mistaken for Safwa. But it is very fun having a name that is quite uncommon and I've received lots of compliments.
