First name Poppy, middle name Rose

Obviously I love floral girly names lol

Penelope Rose with nn Poppy is beautiful and gives her options for when she's older, i.e.; Dr Penelope Rose :)

Yay! Glad people think it’s sweet. My thought is she can use “Rose” when older if she chooses.

Our dog is Penelope 🙊

I love it. I adored Poppy for my own children but unfortunately it's what my kids call my stepdad so it would have been weird :lol:

Not a fan of Poppy myself - probably because it is literally a Grandpa name for me too.

I wouldnt do a double flower name myself - so if you like Poppy I would pick a non-flower middle name.

Probably stay away from all noun middle names, I think.

Flows well but suffocatingly floral.

I really like Poppy and Rose but I would seek the same flow with a different middle name.

Shame you used Penelope for the dog

Phoebe Rose would be pretty too - Poppy may be cute for a baby and toddler,  not so as a teenager or adult

Calliope?  Pippa  Philipa Portia Phaedra Sophie Sophia

It's a bit grossly cutesy.

Probably cute on a toddler or little girl. Not so adorable on an adult..

Not a fan sorry

Yes I figured there would be some who didn’t like it, good to hear a variety of opinions.

We don’t even know if we’re pregnant, let alone if it will be a girl or not - with the history in DH family I’m fairly sure we’d get a second boy anyway...probably why I don’t mind contemplating sweet, cutesy girly names because I’ll never actually get to use one 😂

I like the variation of Pippa Rose - but I dislike Phillipa through personal association.

Is there a reason middle names shouldn’t be nouns?

We have a Poppy (as in grandfather) in our family but so many names have double uses I don’t see it as an issue, we see them once a month or so, they’re not here everyday.

I also think having the option to use Rose as their name if they chose to is a good one, nothing wrong with an adult or teenage Rose.

I am yet to see a name thread on any name/s where 100% like the name though

Too flowery.  Poppy is a lovely name and Rose is a beautiful middle name but not together.

#22 TaciturnTurtledove

Middle names can totally be nouns, but it works better when the first name is not also a noun.
If both names are nouns it can give confusing visuals or tie the child to certain concepts they may not enjoy e.g.

Snow White (could be a paint colour)
Charity Rose (could be a flower sold by non profits)
Piper Joy (could be a happy musician)

This.  It's a bit hipster and w@#$nky. Think running a board meeting in mid 30s with that name.

I can see that, I like the hippy vibe though so that doesn’t worry me.

I’ve said a ee times in this thread Rose could be used as an adult or teen if he preferred. Nothing wrong with a Rose in a board meeting at all.

I don't find Poppy remotely hippy. I think of more unusual nature names as 'hippy'. Poppy is just really trendy.

I'd find something like
Lotus, Clover, Rainbow, Saffron etc. more 'hippy'
