[pople]3 (s.xivin)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: ; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF: ; TLF: ; OED:  popple n.2; MED:  pople n.1; DMLBS: ]
pebel;  pobel,  pobell,  poble,  pobyl;  popell,  popil,  popill,  popul,  popule  
M.E. (?)

None of the citations are definitely Anglo-Norman and these glosses may be considered Middle English.

The OED (Third Edition, 2006) confirms the uncertain origin of the word, but suggest a possible association with poppy n., with an -le suffix, through association with cockle n.1 (with both words referring to plants with similar red flowers).
