In addition to this my books add (or alter) a few details:

POPPE may also be a (nursery) variant of names with the first element FOLK. (Wilfried Seibicke: Historisches Deutsches Vornamenbuch I-IV, 2000 ff.)

As a German surname POPPE may go back to Middle High German "poppe", which was used for a sumptuous person or a show-off. Sometimes it may be from a place-name Poppe (a place in former Brandenburg, now Poland). (Rosa und Volker Kohlheim, Familiennamen, Mannheim 2000)
