I was thinking the other day that I really don’t know a lot of girls named Tiffany. And especially nowadays, I don’t know of a lot of babies that are named Tiffany.
But I really like my name. I asked my mom how she came up with it, and she said she just always loved the name Tiffany.

And so, she named me Tiffany Dawn.

In the search to find the perfect baby name for your little one, why not consider blending old and new for the perfect combination?
Blended baby names are a tradition that dates back many years, when families would blend names together to form new combinations. A son might have a mix of a father’s name and his role, for instance, such as in a name like, “Benson,” which literally means, “Ben’s son.”
Alternatively, a blended baby’s name might be a wonderful way to incorporate a mother’s maiden name or honor family members that are important to you. Or, maybe you simply can’t agree on your favorite name with your partner and can simply blend the two together. Click through for some examples of beautiful blended baby’s names for your own inspiration!
