Despite my sisters attempt to put me off the name, dh & I have decided to stick with Poppy for dd2 (due in 6 days! grin) as we've loved it from the start and will only regret it if we change it because of someone elses opinion.

So now need a middle name. Here are a few on the shortlist (please criticise) but open to any other suggestions as none of them are definate yet:

Poppy Faye
Poppy Amber
Poppy Emma
Poppy Elisabeth
Poppy Heather
Poppy Evelyn

Poppy Faye - Bit of a mouthful, I don't think so.
Poppy Amber - fine
Poppy Emma - fine
Poppy Elisabeth - the best one by far as you don't have the 2 syllable/2 syllable problem. I would spell Elizabeth though.
Poppy Heather - this seems odd as it's two plants together but completely unrelated ones. Like Thistle avocado
Poppy Evelyn - also pretty good

Poppy Elizabeth if it were my choice from your list, really not very keen on Poppy Heather.

Poppy Florence?....Any excuse for Florence, love it. smile

Seed? (Sorry! Poppy is lovely really!)

Elizabeth out of the ones on your list but make sure the initials don't spell anything when added to your surname. DH almost became ARS!

What about Katherine/Catherine?

I like Poppy Lou - not really keen on any from your list, sorry.

We have a Poppy Emma - but that is because my friend is called Emma (i do love the name though).

Someone suggested Kate a while ago.

I would go for quite a traditional name for the middle name in case she ever wants to use something more "grown up". So would pick any of the ones starting with "E".

MaggieBee Mon 08-Jun-09 08:19:05

Poppy Elizabeth definitely sounds best.
Poppy Eleanor
Poppy Louisa
Poppy Juliet
They all work too.

Poppy Louise

Poppy Susannah

A one or three syllable second name sounds best with a two syllable first name I think so from your list I'd go with Poppy Faye or Poppy Elizabeth.

I have a Poppy Louise .

Fimbo Mon 08-Jun-09 08:59:42

Poppy Louise is the best.

Great choice Comewhinewithme grin

A friend has a Poppy Leigh. Poppy Elisabeth is my favorite from your list.

oliviasmama Mon 08-Jun-09 09:26:20

Oooh I like Poppy Louise too

TwoSunnyDays Mon 08-Jun-09 11:29:11

Poppy Elisabeth

Bathsheba Mon 08-Jun-09 11:55:42

My Poppy is Poppy Charlotte

She was almost Poppy Alice or Poppy Louise

Wheelybug Mon 08-Jun-09 11:58:07

We were going to call DD1 Poppy Elizabeth. Changed our minds on the Poppy but still think its a great combination.

Poppity Mon 08-Jun-09 11:58:17

Poppy Saffron

Poppy Phillipa

I like Evelyn from your list

MamaG Mon 08-Jun-09 11:59:48


Sorry, just joking, Poppy is a lovely name

MamaG Mon 08-Jun-09 12:00:35

Now read thread, see Buda is as daft as me!

Yes, be careful with surname, DD was almost ARS and my mym is PMS grin

Buda Mon 08-Jun-09 13:03:02

LOL MamaG! Great minds and all that!

twinklegreen Mon 08-Jun-09 14:23:51
