When we talk about posh, we usually refer to money, wealth, stylish clothing, elegance, and noble-like behavior, where the term has been used for more than 200 years, and while its meaning has somewhat changed over time it was always alluding to the higher class, in one way or another. Think about the time and the world the characters lives in, what could be considered posh then and there, where and how was the character raised, what personality they have today, and think of a name worthy of the sophistication and splendor that follows their every step.
