I'm not looking for opinions on the name Posy (as I know it is universally hated by mn) I love it.

I'm wondering if it rhymes with our surname in a bad way. Or surname sounds nearly exactly the same as Trophy so to prevent outing myself do you think Posy Trophy sounds ok?

Nope, too many "EEEE" sounds. Sounds twee.

I am so sorry as I do love Posy, but it doesn't work.

May I suggest changing surname instead not being serious wink

What about Rosy nn Rosy Posy?

Yikes no!
Posy is bad enough but.....just no.

No I don't, sorry. Sounds like a Lhasa Aoso's show name. Eeek!

Lhasa Apso

I think its a lovely name smile

Sorry, I wouldn't go for it. More because of the o sounds rather than the ending ee.
Do you like Tansy ?

Please don't. Josephine Trophy sounds good though & Posy is the nn.

No, it doesn't sound good.

DitsyDonkey Fri 27-Sep-13 19:05:52

Ok ok just what I was thinking its too much. Pity.....back to the drawing board.

I'm picturing lots of Zoolander type male models in a pouting competition.

What about Primrose...?

I like Posy, but not with your surname. The repeating O sound and the repeating ending both make it not work.

I like the suggestion of Josephine Trophy with Posy as the nn.
