Tiff is a Tiffany, but she comes by that moniker legitimately as it's a surname in her family -- like Haley Mills is named for her mother's side of the family, her mother being Mary Haley Bell. She's also outside the gang of girls named after jewelry stores and alcoholic beverages, since she's older than me. I wonder what would lead one to name a baby "Brandy" -- surely it would be setting an unfortunate fate in motion. There's a section on Not Without My Handbag that deals with Bad Baby Names. I never fail to get a kick out of it. Still waiting to see someone has named twin girls "Tiffany" and "Harry Winston" though.
