Watched a film today where the baby was called Posy and thought it was lovely. Do you think it's an acceptable name for someone older than age 5 or is it just my crazy hormones?

Oh. I like it smile

Wasn't one of the Flumps called Posy?

No. Just no.

Notgrumpyjustquiet Sun 07-Jun-15 00:26:36

It was! I remember now. The others were called Perkin and Pootle.

Seriously, no.

It's your crazy hormones.

I've heard of Posy being used as a nickname for Josephine, which I think is quite sweet.

Flump (and her brothers Pootle and Perkin).

Lovely, but then I'm a massive fan of Noel Streatfeild.

X post sorrel!

Very twee. Must be the hormones. You have read Ballet Shoes, I hope? Posy is the worst Fossil sister by a country mile. Petrova is a great name and she is the best Fossil sister- have you considered this?

Lovely nickname, e.g. for Josephine or Mariposa but I think it's a bit twee as a proper given name! I think there are a lot of grown women it just wouldn't work on and as such I would recommend it.

What about Peony with the nick name posy. Or call baby Josephine with the nick name posy.

AWhistlingWoman Sun 07-Jun-15 00:44:52

Nice (another ballet shoes fan)

It is a bunch of flowers.
So no.
Blame your hormones.

Ooooh nooooo, instead of focusing n little cute baby baby name, try thinking about an adult name. Posy is just cringeworthy as a 'I'm a grown up take me seriously' name, very sickly.
