Meaning: God’s appearence; epiphany
Alternate spellings: Tiffani, Tifani, Tiff
Do you know why Tiffany sounds so eighties today? Here are some hints: it can’t be Tiffany & Co., around since 1837, and it’s not from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, a 1961 movie based on a 1958 book (and the Deep Blue Something song came out too late, in 1995). Oh, that’s right: Tiffany was an eighties singer who tore up the charts, and you didn’t remember her because, well…what did she sing, anyway? Tiffany is a Greek name that means “God’s appearance” or “epiphany.” It hit the charts in 1962, but didn’t really take off until the Tiffany-crazy eighties, when it peaked at #13 for a few years. It’s been dropping ever since. Even though it’s still catchy – and comes with great nickname Tiff – it just feels hopelessly dated today.
