Just after your personal opinion, any comments are welcome.
What do you think of the name 'Saffron' for a baby girl? It is the name of a flower in the crocus family, and its stamens are edible, in fact the most expensive spice in the world. We thought if we have a girl, I would like to call her that.

My friend has a daughter named Saffron! Her other two children have very 'out there' names too!
I love it

I love it. My DD is called Saffron. I didn't choose it to be different, in fact I didn't pick it, my parents did. When we heard the name, her father and I knew that this was THE name. The only other name I wanted to use was Ondine.

I like the name but 2 words - Ab Fab. Keep it in mind but if you like the name then go for it

It reminds me of Ab Fab, not my taste.

AB Fab plus I knew someone called Saffron who was an absolute b**ch so not a name I would go for.

Reminds me of Christina Hendricks character in Firefly!
But I really like it, I think it's lovely.

It's not terrible but I can think of at least 1000 names off the top of my head I like better.

LOVE it! Fresh, funky, gorgeous. One of my all time favorite names.

I LOVE IT! My neice is called Saffron and she is the cutest ever!

I really like it.
I don't even think the Ab Fab association is a negative one.

I like it. I wouldn't use it only because I have other names I like better but it's pretty and strong.
Saffy is cute.

Not that keen on it but hey as long as you like it - that's what really matters
yeah reminds me of Ad Fab

I like it - I think I would sing her "Mellow Yellow" when I woke her in the morning....
Coz I'm just mad about Saffron
And Saffron's mad about me...

Not my most favourite, but I don't mind it.
Although I do think of Saffron Burrows, who I can't stand as an actress, and who has put me off two TV series so far...

Thanks ladies. Hmmm sorry for being so dud....what is Ab Fab? Hehe is it an Aussie personality? I am not Australian but living here in Oz so havent heard of it.
We are thinking of an S cos DS has an S. And my 5 nieces are Shannon, Shaianne, Sienna, Selsea and Sheeren and most are given by me and I am running out of S....Shaianne's my favourite but taken.

Oh I see. Thank you. Had a look at the link and I understand now.
Thank you all for your lovely responses.

Saffron is a name I like, although wouldnt quite use it myself.
Perfectly good name though and I dont think the Ab fab connection is strong enough to be a problem - or perhaps I just dont watch much tellie, doesnt seem a problem to me anyway.
Posted 11 March 2012 - 12:23 PM
I'm reminded of Ab Fab - "Saffy", "Sweety" and "Bolly" will never sound the same again...
Having said that, I think it's a beautiful name
