Too tied to the dog breed. It's all I can think of when hearing it

It sounds too annoying, and it's a dog breed, which you probably don't want to name your kid after. If it's the butterfly meaning you like, then maybe Mariposa instead?

In ballet, my favorite step was "pas de papillon" or "step of the butterfly." I think this could be a unique way to get to "Poppy." I didn't know it was a dog breed though... That might be a deal breaker :/
