I prefer the spelling Posey. I think it's a cute name, but I'd never use it because it seems irritatingly juvenile and an adult named Posey would probably have trouble being taken seriously.

Sounds very silly and juvenile.

I have a friend named Cora Posy __________ (not gonna say it on this forum). She is really smart and nice and hardworking and always tries to do the right thing. When she told me her middle name was Posy we all started laughing because she knows it's a silly name (we were not making fun of her). Said it was passed down in the family.

Only a name a little girl would come up with.

I really can't stand it. It's really not a nice name! How will she get jobs in the future with a name like Posie! This name is trying to hard to be original.

Great nickname to names such as Primrose, Mariposa, Penelope, Rose or Rosie

Too babyish to carry into adulthood but so cute on a little girl. There’s a fantastic british film called About Time with Rebecca Adams and the daughter's name in that film is Posey (though I much prefer ‘ie’ spellings for nicknames) and she was a stunning little red headed child whom I thought suited the name very much. It would have to take a sweet and dainty girl to pull off the name. I think it’s girly and cute but not too common. So many negative comments about a beautiful name. I suspect there are many older and outdated people on this platform.

Very babyish.

I think it's lovely. I'm not a believer in the idea that names can be unprofessional, though it is an incredibly feminine name, it would be unfortunate for a girl who grows up to not be very feminine herself.

Simply awful. So infantile. Silly, silly, silly.

I loved Ballet Shoes, and Posy is a beautiful name, in my opinion. I would not hesitate to use it for a baby girl.

Posy could be used as a nickname for the name Primrose.

Felity's lamb from the American Girl books is named Posy.

My name is Persephone and Posie is my nickname so I think it's very cute. I've only ever gotten compliments on it so I think it's great.

I like the name Posy. It brings to mind a creative, independent, feminine lady. I'm not sure how you would get this from Josephine, though--seems like you would automatically be called Jo or Josie instead.

Ring around the rosy
A pocket full of posies
Ashes, Ashes, they all fall down!

That's all I think of when I hear this name.

One of the main characters from the book Ballet Shoes is named Posy.

Positive outlooks of names are so much better than the negative, and more fun to read, too. What's wrong with being girly? Besides that, I think Posy is a lovely name for reasons I'm not totally sure about. I'm not into ballet but I liked "Ballet Shoes".

I didn't know this was a pet form of Josephine. I always thought it came from the flower Posy.
Pippin  5/4/2008
It sounds silly, ugly, girly, and infantile.

I however love this name as a nickname. IT IS NOT A FLOWER NAME. Posy Fossil is one of the greatest girls in modern literature (Ballet Shoes) and I think this name is a lot better than some modern names people come up with.

That is a VERY wierd name. If you want your daughter's name to mean 'flower', use 'Flora' instead.

Posy is the worst name I have ever heard! Why would anybody give their child a stupid name like that? It's so babyish.
