Here is our issue:
I am a proud mama to 2 little girls, Poppy (Penelope) Isabella and Paisley Savannah. Our last name is Powers. Well, we are now expecting baby number 3 in September and I cannot decide whether to go with another P name or not if this is a girl. I don't want their names to sound cheesy, and I definitely gravitate toward P names because I love the double P sound in the first and last names, particularly for female names. Do you think a 3rd daughter will feel "left out" if we don't use a p name? This is most definitely our last child.
So far, names in the running for a girl are:
1. Piper (my husband loves this name)
3. Mariposa and call her Posey
Do you have any non-P name suggestions that go well with Poppy and Paisley?
If the baby is a boy, his name will probably be Theo Caspian Powers, which I love.
I think if I were you I'd stick with a P name for a third girl. I like Piper best of your options because I think it's the best in the line-up: Posey is so similar in sound to Paisley when said out loud (I found myself swapping the sounds: Paisy and Posely), and Phoebe suddenly feels like it SHOULD be pronounced with a P sound instead of an F sound. Other P names to consider:
Padget Powers. Poppy, Paisley, and Padget.
Patience Powers. Poppy, Paisley, and Patience.
Persia Powers. Poppy, Paisley, and Persia.
Philippa Powers. Poppy, Paisley, and Pippa.
Peyton Powers. Poppy, Paisley, and Peyton.
Polly Powers. Poppy, Paisley, and Polly. (This might be too close to Poppy---but it helps that Poppy is actually Penelope: Penelope, Paisley, and Polly.)
My two favorites are Padget and Philippa: Padget because I only recently heard of that name and I think it's adorbs, and Philippa because I like the way she can draw attention to the P sound with Pippa, or downplay it with the F sound of Philippa.
