Due date is next week. Imogen has been top choice for the last few months but I'm wondering about Poppy now. Would welcome your thoughts. Thanks x

I think Imogen would have more longevity.

Tricky as both great names but with quite a different feel to each. For me Imogen slightly wins over Poppy, just because it's ever so slightly more classic, while Poppy is more 'cute' and I know quite a lot of toddlers called Poppy. So I vote Imogen.

Why not wait until you meet her and see which one fits?

Imogen for me

Your an adult for a lot longer than baby/child so I think a name needs to follow that.

Poppy is more popular (I know several Poppys but no little Imogens), so I'd go with Imogen. Both lovely though.

Poppy is beautiful.

I don't really like Poppy at all. It's a bit cutesie.

SlinkyB Sat 10-Oct-15 07:52:48

I agree; wait until she's here and see which one fits her. Good luck!

I think Imogen travels better into adulthood. Imogen can do anything. Poppy is unlikely to be prime minister.

Poppy. It was my grandmother's name, so I disagree that Imogen is more classic / has more longevity.

'Poppy is unlikely to be prime minister'. I hate comments like this, they are ridiculous. There are lots of Poppy's, Lily's, Kitty's about these days - it will be the norm in 25 years or so and of course they will be accessing top jobs. Not a good reason to avoid a name at all.

Another vote for Imogen.

I've loved Poppy for years but now I know quite a few so Imogen has crept ahead for me (I know a toddler and teen Imogen)
