    I would be surprised if I met a woman named Poppy--to me it is very nicknamey/cutesy. But I am in America, so I guess that's why. I wouldn't say it's not usable, considering it's common elsewhere, but my impression of the name is that it wouldn't age well.

    Probably already been mentioned, but there must be hundreds of little girls named Poppy in the UK.
    They're everywhere!

    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.
