Poppy Meaning and Origin

The name Poppy is a girl’s name meaning “red flower” and is of Latin origin. The name poppy is derived from the Old English word popæg (various species of Papaver). Dynasties throughout time have included poppy flowers in ceremonies and rituals. In Roman mythology, the poppy was associated with Morpheus, the god of dreams, and was believed to have the power to induce sleep and dreams. Poppys are said to be a symbol of fertility, remembrance, and sacrifice. Poppy has been a popular name for girls in recent years, particularly in the United Kingdom, where it has been in the top 100 names since the early 2000s. It has also gained popularity in other English-speaking countries such as the United States, Canada, and Australia. There are also a few notable people with the name Poppy, including the British singer and songwriter Poppy, whose real name is Moriah Rose Pereira. It’s a bright and happy flower name that’s not overused. We think it’s wearable for a first name and spunky as a middle name.
