My husband and I love the name Poppy but our second name is cook, which automatically makes me think poppycock! Does it sound stupid or it just me?? :s

Pollyanna Cook sounds fab, with Polly for short - it sounds like the sort of name I would have longed for as a young girl!

The advantage to your surname is you can have names ending in -y, eg Emily, Lucy. If we had had a dd I so wanted Esme, but our surname is Scottish, ends -ie, pronounced -ee so any first name ending in y sounds too uppy-downy iykwim.
