The name "Tiffany" is much more common as a first name, rather than a surname and there is far more information available in terms of its origins, when examined as a given name. Nevertheless, as a surname Tiffany was "imported" to England in circa 1066, during the Norman Conquest. According to historical records, the first families to have this name lived in the Cumberland area.

It is thought that the name "Tiffany" originated in Greece and originally meant "revelation of God." In Greek, "Tiffany" often translates into "Theophania." Traditionally, the name was especially popular among people of the Catholic and Orthodox Christian faith, as the name is associated with the Feast of the Epiphany, which is celebrated on 6 January each year. At least one source asserted that "Tiffany" is of French origin, although most people do agree that this name first appeared in Greece, but no exact date is known.

In the United States, this name gained popularity during the 1990s and was among the top 50 names given to baby girls from 1980 to 2002. Alternative spellings of the name include "Tiffaney," " Tiffani" and "Tiffanie." When spelled "Tiffany," the name is essentially the traditional English form of the original Greek name, and first appeared in England during the Middle Ages. In English cultures, the name sometimes appears as "Tiffiny."

The girl's name Tiffany t(I)-ffa-ny is pronounced TIF-a-nee. It is of Greek origin, and its meaning is "revelation of God". Variant of the Greek Theophania. In many Christian countries, girls born on January 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, are given some form of this name. The feast commemorates the day when the three Magi saw the infant Jesus. To modern Christians, the Magi were Gentiles, and thus their visit to the baby Jesus is the "revelation of God" to the non-Jewish world. Now, the name is associated with Tiffany & Co, the New York jeweler, giving it connotations of upper-class luxury.The word "Tiffany" also means thin veil or gauze. "Tifinie" is used in Old French to mean "Epiphany."
Tiffany is a Greek name.
It means ''revelation from god''
.shortened from Theophania
.in the medieval ages on the Feast Of  Epophany girls which had been born were called Tiffany
.so the name reflects god and his power so if you meet a girl called Tiffany she might be reflecting the power of god to his children
.she might be an angel sent from above to show the love of god
.so its showing that god is always there to guide you to the right path but he can not make you do that can he.
