It's top of the shortlist for dd2. What do you think?

Love Saffy, hate Saffron, sorry.

I know a little girl called Serafina who gets called Saffy for short. Much prefer that.

Saffy the Staffy.

Both are lovely. Makes me think of Ab Fab of course, but that's not a bad thing,

I love Saffy but prefer Saffiyha as a name rather than Saffron... But gorgeous and lovely!

Love the name Saffron and Saffy too.

I don't like the 'fron' sound at the end of the name, but I like the abbreviation Saffy. Just my opinion & you need to go for what you like.

Love the name Saffron, Saffy got short. Not that unusual.

Love Saffron, Saffy, Saffiya, etc. Saffron sounds a bit more 1980s to me but that could be that I knew a couple then. Beautiful names!

I don't thinks saffron is a very well formed name tbh. The saff followed by Ron makes it quite harsh, with no softening vowel in between, if that makes any sense whatsoever to anyone. Saffiyah is much softer and prettier

Love Saffron/Saffy and Staffy's 😂

I know a teenage Saffron and she doesn't really get it shortened. She's a lovely girl so hasn't been bothered by the "wtf" reactions to her name. It's very "out there" given where she lives and her surname!

Saffron nn Saffy is nice. Saffy for the bc? No.

Sadik Sun 16-Apr-17 15:29:44

Lovely name, Saffy very Ab Fab, and Saffron for me will always bring to mind Donovan singing "I'm just mad about Saffron/And Saffron's mad about me". But both of those are (a) ancient, and (b) perfectly harmless.

SillySongsWithLarry Sun 16-Apr-17 15:31:50

I have a Saffron nn Saffie. I prefer Saffron, she prefers Saffie so is called Saffie.

greeeen Sun 16-Apr-17 18:26:48

It's very Absolutely Fabulous. I like it.

JiltedJohnsJulie Sun 16-Apr-17 19:10:01

DS has a Saffy short for Saffron in his year. Love both. Even though I've known her since she was 2 I can't remember anyone mentioning the Ab Fab connection.

LadyCallandraDaviot Sun 16-Apr-17 19:53:33

I know a Sapphire, known as Saffy (Saphie??) Think it is lovely

Redpramlady Sun 16-Apr-17 21:24:15
