Posy is a feminine name with English, French, and Latin roots. For a blooming aesthetic, it can translate to “flower bouquet”—remember the line in the old nursery rhyme “pocketful of posies?” This name may also refer to a motto engraved on the inside of a ring. If this sounds like a gift you plan to pass down to your bundle of joy, Posy can have plenty of sentimental value. This name can also come from the Middle English and Middle French word poesie, meaning “poetry passage.” Baby can easily be the next great poet, and the moniker Posy can make for lovely-worded inspiration. If you’re looking for a more traditional choice, Posy also serves as an adorable nickname for the classic French name Josephine, meaning “God shall add.” Whether you want to share your faith with baby or help them appreciate the power of words, Posy can do the job.
