sibling name with Poppy

my daughter is named [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Anne[/name]. We are TTC for #2. If we have a girl next, I love

[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Blue[/name]

But i’m completely stumped if we have a boy! My husband likes [name]Jonah[/name], but I don’t love it enough to use it.


any ideas?

I’m not sure [name]Jonah[/name] goes with [name]Poppy[/name], albeit a lovely name, its from a totally different style.



I’d couple one of these (or similar) with a classic name, in the style of [name]Anne[/name], something like [name]James[/name], [name]Henry[/name], [name]Harry[/name], [name]Matthew[/name]…maybe [name]Jonah[/name]…

Thanks! I couldn’t pin point why I didn’t love [name]Jonah[/name], but I think you’re right. It doesn’t fit.

I like [name]Archer[/name] nn [name]Archie[/name]. DH thinks it sounds a bit “uppity” (whatever that means). I like [name]Max[/name] too, but I’m afraid its a little popular. Anyone have good similar-but-different alternatives to [name]Max[/name]??

[name]Hi[/name], by the way I love the name [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Anne[/name].

I also like the names [name]Archie[/name] and [name]Jack[/name], as well as [name]Alfie[/name] (really popular in UK). I’m not crazy about the name [name]Jonah[/name] either, don’t dislike it… but not crazy about it.

With [name]Poppy[/name] [name]Anne[/name] and [name]Mabel[/name] [name]Blue[/name], I really love [name]Lyle[/name]! I think is sounds very handsome and it also keeps up with the “4-letters-ending-in-E” thing you seem to have going.

For hubby, what about [name]Lyle[/name] [name]Jonas[/name] LastName? Or if you don’t like [name]Lyle[/name], try [name]Linus[/name]. I think those would be right up your alley. Maybe [name]Linus[/name] [name]John[/name]?

HTH :slight_smile:

I understand that you love [name]Mabel[/name] [name]Blue[/name] for a second daughter, but I don’t think [name]Mabel[/name] captures the spunky, fun, feminine flavor of [name]Poppy[/name] at all. I’d fear that [name]Mabel[/name] would always feel like the “ugly duckling” in comparison to the lovely [name]Poppy[/name] - this is just my opinion, though. I’d pair [name]Poppy[/name] with something equally as fun, such as [name]Hazel[/name], [name]Fiona[/name], [name]Matilda[/name], [name]Leda[/name], [name]Sadie[/name], [name]Regina[/name], [name]Eloise[/name], or [name]Genevieve[/name]. I honestly love the combination of [name]Fiona[/name] [name]Blue[/name]!

For a boy, I don’t think [name]Jonah[/name] is the right style to match [name]Poppy[/name], and [name]Jack[/name] seems to plain. I think, if you want a J name, you might like [name]Julian[/name], [name]Jasper[/name], [name]Jensen[/name], [name]Jagger[/name], or [name]Jameson[/name]. If not a J name, you may like [name]Alden[/name], [name]Barrett[/name], [name]Edsel[/name], [name]Ferris[/name], [name]Gus[/name] (or [name]Augustine[/name], [name]Augustus[/name]), [name]Herschel[/name], [name]Landon[/name], [name]Maxwell[/name], [name]Oscar[/name], [name]Percy[/name], [name]Russell[/name], [name]Sebastian[/name], [name]Theodore[/name], or [name]Wyatt[/name]…

I love [name]Poppy[/name]! :slight_smile: With [name]Poppy[/name], I picture another name with a vintage (or even slightly offbeat, in a good way) feel:

[name]Archibald[/name] ([name]Archie[/name])
[name]Lionel[/name] (nn [name]Leo[/name])

Surnames (with a vintage feel to me) that I can see with [name]Poppy[/name]:

[name]Reed[/name] (nature name theme, though)

Good luck (and sorry for repeats)! :slight_smile:

I like [name]Mabel[/name] but feel she needs a more classic middle like [name]Poppy[/name]'s [name]Anne[/name].

[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Eliza[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Clare[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Beth[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Dora[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Flora[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Jean[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Laura[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Olive[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Pip[/name]
[name]Mabel[/name] [name]Eloise[/name]

Boys similar feel to [name]Poppy[/name] & [name]Mabel[/name] for me


thanks for all the suggestions!! forgot to mention the MN is Klos.

i love

[name]Archer[/name] (nn [name]Archie[/name])

now its just getting DH to agree :wink:

i love [name]Mabel[/name] [name]Jane[/name]! I had actually thought of that for the literary connection to [name]Jane[/name] [name]Austen[/name].

What about [name]Mabel[/name] [name]Amelia[/name]? In keeping with the classic “A” MN like [name]Anne[/name]?
