A friend & I were talking about how you know how old people are by their names, and she said "Can you imagine an old lady named Tiffany?" Well, no, I can't, but someday there will be a lot of old ladies named Tiffany, and Tiffany will be considered an old lady's name and nobody will name their kids that any more.
I really like the name Tiffany. If I was having a daughter I would name her that. I think it's a cool, perky, classy name!
