Ugh, I'm sorry. This name is ridiculous. I can see it as a childhood nickname, but I cannot see an adult woman carrying this name well. An attorney named Posie (Posey, Posy)? A U.S president? A doctor? Don't name your kids this. Even Marigold or possibly Clover as better even though they sound like cow names too. Leave this for childhood nicknames and names for your pets.
