Gender: F Origin of Poppy: Latin flower name

Poppy, unlike most floral names which are sweet and feminine, has a lot of spunk; Poppy makes an especially good choice for a redhead. Jamie Oliver -- the British "Naked Chef" -- used Poppy for his daughter Poppy Honey Rosie, as did Anthony Edwards, Jessica Capshaw, and Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer.

One notable Poppy is Australian Without a Trace star Poppy Montgomery (full name Poppy Petal Emma Elizabeth--her mother named all her daughters after flowers: Lily, Daisy, Marigold and Rosie).

Although she's never made the list in the US, Poppy is on a popularity roll in England, Scotland, and Wales.

Other Poppy-like names to consider: Pippa and Piper and Petal.
