Ab Fab springs to mind.

I love it. DH would never allow it. It does make me think of Ab Fab, but that is so long ago I don't think its a problem

fails on 5 and 6, I reckon!

I like it but not sure about Saffi as a nn (bit too close to Saft - or is that just a Midlands thing ?)

I like your list seeker

Windy DO NOT DO IT, she will be forever bullied and compared to Saffi (yuk the worst nick name) in AbFab. Call her something normal instead.

My kids don't know anything about AbFab, nevermind in 5 years time, so doubt whether it will be a prob in the playground.

I think it's pretty.

I love it. Babies born now won't have any recollection of Ab Fab so I reckon you'd be fine.

I know a Saffron in her thirty's who has been made miserable by her name.

I don't think bullying because of AbFab will be an issue, for the above reasons, and, siouxie, I think it is one of the most normal names out there! It was on the top of my baby list in the late eighties/early nineties, but it's problaby due a revival after the abfab associations. If it were't quite so late eighties in a similar vein to Amber(the Yasmin and Simon Le Bon used it for their second dd, their first was Amber Rose - sad I know this of course) I would use it myself as it is essentially a lovely name - with a very pretty meaning, a fragrant spice with a glorious golden colour.

I love it! And then you could all move to Saffron Walden in Essex...

very pretty

DS has a Saffron in his year group (they just finished Yr4); we tease him constantly about having a crush on her because once DH noticed DS blushing when she greeted him in public.
She's one of the most popular girls in the year, very magnificent looking (like both her parents).
I never thought of the AbFab link before blush.
