There are lots of reasons to give your child a middle baby name, and Poppy is no exception! A middle name can provide continuity between siblings with different first names, pay tribute to another relative or role model, or simply add an extra layer of meaning to your child’s name.

Often people can make the middle name a nickname later on or even you can put the initials together to form a new name, for example, Poppy Shane could become PS!

Research has also indicated that having middle names improves people’s chances of getting a better job in the future! According to a study published in the European Journal of Social Psychology, people who have middle names are believed to have a high social position and to be intellectually superior. 

Choosing baby names is hard, whether you opt for unique middle names, cute middle names or just unisex names which come from your family, there is no right or wrong. Just make sure the full name flows together, sounds right and just calls to you.
