Probably already been mentioned, but there must be hundreds of little girls named Poppy in the UK.
The Brits like it but a lot of people call their dads and grandfathers Poppy. The sexual connotation comes from women calling their boyfriend/ hubby, Papi
I just find it cutesy and childish but cutesy names are popular overseas
I love Poppy. I think it's cute and a refreshing change in the states from all the Violets, Lilys, and Roses we have. The only problem I could see with the name is I don't imagine it would age well.
Yes, the papi connection as kind of a sexy nickname for a Hispanic man is sort of problematic, and it also bugs me a little, the grandfather connection...but my real issue here is the phrase "popping her cherry" as a reference for a girl losing her virginity.
I don't really like it for a name. I had no problem with it until I was grocery shopping the other day and heard a mother call after her daughter, Poppy. It just doesn't sound like a name. Not to mention there's no real way of sternly saying Poppy. And, her mother also called her what sounded like Poop.
I just don't like it I guess, but it seems I'm the minority.
I really like Poppy, it's a great name!
