As for the name they chose, it's one of the cutest and sweetest we've heard in a long time: Poppy Louise Hager. Sweet, bright and light, Poppy evokes images of the pretty, peppy flower. Louise adds a nice classic hint to the name.

The meaning behind the names, however, is sweetest of all, as the first name is in honor of Jenna's grandfather, former President George H.W. Bush. He reportedly went by the nickname "Poppy" when he was younger. Louise comes from both sides of the family as Jenna and Henry have grandmothers with the middle names Louise and Lewis.
