Just thought of it and think it's lovely, though not for everyone am sure! What do you think?

Posy Simmons is an artist/writer I think.
I think it's very pretty but would wonder about the word 'pose' being such a strong element of the name! But I like simple names which are a bit of a blank canvas myself!

Nosy Posy.

It is cute - the little one from Ballet Shoes and/or the flumps <shows age>

CointreauVersial Wed 05-Oct-11 12:48:56

Ballet Shoes!

Its a pretty baby/little girl's name. Not sure how well it sits on a grownup woman TBH.

It's very prim. Wasn't the youngest sister in 'Ballet Shoes' called Posy? It has a whistful, nostalgic feel to it I suppose, but I can't imagine a 21st century Posy.

Isn't there a Posy journalist who writes about cocktail bars?

Really like it - think it is a shortened version of Josephine, so you could use that with Posy as a nickname, then she would have the choice of being called Josephine/Jo/Josie etc. when older if she wanted to.

thought of Ballet Shoes too!

Toobluntforboss Wed 05-Oct-11 15:26:05

Love it - think it is very sweet.

I quite like it, bit it does make me think "Rosie, Posy, pudding & pie, kissed a girl & made them cry", sorry!

Bit too cute for me I'm afriad...!

QueenVictoria42 Wed 05-Oct-11 16:44:41

meh. Posy nosey parker.

Very babyish. Please not as full name.
I just asked 10yo DD (has some very shallow X-Factor tastes) what she thought of it... actually, she thought it was fine! "There's a book about a teenager called Posie", she said.

Sounds a bit odd and little-girly to me

CandiceMariePratt Thu 06-Oct-11 09:16:57

I know a Posy, lovely name.

Listzilla Thu 06-Oct-11 09:38:36

My DD is called Róisín but it's been shortened to Rosie or sometimes Posy and the cutesiness really suits her. And we do sometimes call her Nosy Posy, she's very interested in everything : )

Wasn't there a poster last year who was desperate to use Posy but had unfortunately already called her older child Joseph? Lots of other suggested 'long' forms on that thread -- I liked the suggestions along the lines of Poppy Rose shortened to Posy.
