Posey Origin and Meaning

The name Posey is a girl's name of English origin meaning "a bunch of flowers".

Posey is fashionable in England, a country of gardeners, but this pretty bouquet-of-flowers name is only starting to be heard here.

A possible alternative to Rosy or short form for Josephine. Posey (or Posy or Posie) could also work as a nickname for a range of other names, from Penelope to Sophia. Interestingly, Posie is the most popular spelling of the name, by a hair, with Posey second and Posy far behind.

Other P-beginning flower names you may want to consider along with Posey: Poppy, Petal, Primrose. Girl names that start with P are definitely cool again.
