Since knowing a grown woman who was called [name]Peppy[/name], I think it’s more a prescription than completely inappropriate, but I dislike names like that, [name]Poppy[/name], [name]Piper[/name], [name]Toby[/name], [name]Kip[/name], [name]Dolly[/name], [name]Dotty[/name], and any name that ends in -ette or -etta as a diminutive to a better name; they are ok as nicknames but some people keep their nicknames, you know? As a full name that’s full of some kind of character on a little one just doesn’t have a lot of dignity, might be a swell, swingin’, hip, fun person to know (like [name]Peppy[/name]), and/or they have to overcompensate, which obviously some famous examples have. I think they are better suited for a pet, a really small one like a purse dog. Maybe some children too, maybe some adults too, but I’m too much a realist to even think they are that cute on a youngster whose personality you can’t determine or predict. If they would stay small forever, then they might be just great.
I might not have answered the question right.
