I have girl called Poppy. What girl names could go with it? I don't want another flower. Names I have considered are


DPs contribution so far is Carla which I'm not sure about. Appreciate thoughts or ideas.

Saskia out of your list.

Clara, Charis, Orla?

I like Kitty and think it goes well with Poppy.

I like all your names apart from Ellie

RiverTam Tue 03-Jun-14 22:14:51

hmm, don't really like any of them apart from Carla maybe.

I love Hannah. Saskia is great too.

Think Kitty and Ellie are a bit matchy matchy with Poppy.

Carla is okay but I prefer Clara.

I love love love Kitty, but not sure it goes with Poppy.

Hannah is nice.

Poppy and Kitty go well together imo.

DramaAlpaca Tue 03-Jun-14 22:42:04

From your list, Kitty or Ellie.

I like Saskia & Hannah but I feel they don't go as well. To me, Poppy is quite a cutesy name, and I don't see Saskia & Hannah in that way. I don't mean to be critical here at all, just trying to be helpful, so please don't take me the wrong way.

I know you said not another flower name, but Daisy was the first name that came to mind.

As for suggestions, I feel Mia or Lucy would go well. Or Maisie, as it rhymes with Daisy.

Scarlett (or would two 'red' names be odd)
Amber (ditto comment for Scarlett)

How about Elodie? I think it goes well with Poppy smile

BlueStarsAtNight Tue 03-Jun-14 22:52:33

Love Hannah, and think it goes really well! I think Ellie and Kitty are too nick-namey and too much the same pattern as Poppy. Carla is ok.

How about
Poppy and Chloe
Poppy and Bella
Poppy and Eva
Poppy and Isla

I think another 2 syllable name would go well.

AWombWithoutARoof Wed 04-Jun-14 11:08:22

I like Saskia. What about Eliza?

slightlyconfused85 Wed 04-Jun-14 17:36:41

Thanks for all your suggestions. No criticism taken drama! I'm not keen on Clara or Chloe but I do like Elodie thanks for this. Already have Mia and Lucy in the family and I am a teacher so know lots of Evie and Isla.

Oh good, slightly, I'm glad I didn't offend you. Elodie is a gorgeous name. It must be hard choosing names if you are a teacher - so many associations.

Out of your list I like Saskia best. I think Kitty is more a nn and too similar in sound to Poppy. Elodie is very nice, but would get shortened to Ellie and there seem to be so many of those around (I'm a teacher too!) either as full names or nn for Eleanor, Elsa, Elsie, Ella, Elise, etc, etc.

fuzzpig Sun 08-Jun-14 10:16:36

I know of a Poppy and a Florence.

I think it would be good to not have a name that ends in the 'y'/'ie' sound

devoncreamtea Sun 08-Jun-14 19:38:57

I know sister's called Poppy and Chloe (nn Coco)

devoncreamtea Sun 08-Jun-14 19:39:46

Oh god just realised that makes them Coco-Pops...!! Don't do that then!

Hulafox Sun 08-Jun-14 23:59:36

Our 12 wk old DD is Carla and I haven't regretted it! It isn't very common which we liked about it.

We also considered Amber, Heidi, Holly, Scarlett, Freya.

As Poppy ends with and 'ee' sound, I think an 'a' sound ending with 2 syllables will complement best. I.e. Poppy and Millie is a bit too cutesy, whereas Poppy and Amber or Poppy and Freya go better IMO.

Agree that Saskia is quite a harsh name v's Poppy that is a pretty name.

I like Poppy and Freya ....
