I read somewhere that Buffy's real name was, Elizabeth "Buffy" Anne Summers. Is this true?
Somebody on a Buffy fan site told me that Buffy's real name was Elizabeth "Buffy" Anne Summers and that Buffy was just a nickname that stuck, is this true because I am not sure. He also dicho that Joss confirmed it but I have searched the net and can't find it anywhere. Can anyone help me?
Buffy is a alternative version of Elizabeth... Same as Lizzie, Beth etc. though less obvious. queen Elizabeth The queen Mother for instance was called Buffy por her family. Saying all that, though, Im pretty certain that Buffy Anne Summers is her full name in the series, and is how it would be on her birth certificate if she was a real person. Its not that uncommon for peoples real full name to be a shortened/diminutive form of another.
