Buffy

Buffy, a playful nickname for the more formal Elizabeth, may bring to mind a prim and proper sophisticate or a stake-wielding vampire killer -- the latter association is thanks to the hit TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which ended its run in 2003. The show popularized the name Buffy and characterized her as a strong, smart, independent woman; this ebullient choice also has a uniquely American sound and feel.
