Will use nn Penny but will have two middle names very close to our hearts that I think flows better altogether with the longer Penelope. The middle names are
Johanna Bridget

What do you think? smile

Sounds lovely and Poppy is a cute nickname too

reuset Thu 09-Jul-15 19:55:16

Completely lovely. Nice middles too. I'm impressed!

Oh I love Poppy too but we are in Scotland and for some weird reason I'm not sure I like the way it sounds in our accent blushconfused I don't know what it is maybe the harshness of it ? Tbh I think the Scottish accent ruins some beautiful names .

I really like it. Goes lovely with your middle names too.

I love it, my friend has a Penelope that is called Penny. She considered Nell or Nellie as nn too.

AlmaMartyr Thu 09-Jul-15 20:53:25

Love it! Love the middle names too.

Love it! but Penelope is the name we are using if this DC is a little lady- so I'm biased!

DramaAlpaca Thu 09-Jul-15 22:21:55

Love it.

How old is your friends Penny Gin ? I don't know any at all so wondering how popular it is elsewhere . Although MN name popularity is different from where I live . smile

It's a lovely name and underused.

Sophronia Thu 09-Jul-15 23:50:05

I like it. Nell is another nice nn for it.

maya shes coming up to 2, but shes the only one ive come across. There are none in my DCs classes (nursery and y1)

CakeRattleandRoll Fri 10-Jul-15 09:05:57

Love it all - full name , nn, middle names.

When are you due Ollie ?

Very nice name, not too common or unusual. Penny is a very cute nickname.

Beautiful. A good friend has just named her daughter Penelope. Very classic and elegant.

Rose58 Fri 10-Jul-15 17:27:17

Love it - it's in my list!

Brummiegirl15 Sun 12-Jul-15 18:56:20

I love it too! Not on my list as DP would never agree. But defo love it

I love it. I wanted to name my daughter it over a year ago. I didn't get so many positive response here on MN as you have now! I didn't get great reapers in RL either. Looking back I wish wish wish I had be brave enough to go for it.

mayaknew Sun 12-Jul-15 19:52:55

Floaty that's the way I feel with DSs name . We named him a fairly popular name but I had originally wanted a similar but very unusual name , which actually would have had a family connection , but didn't because I didn't get a positive response and my dad said it sounded like a child trying to say a certain girls name and can't pronounce it properly hmmsad

This time I'm not telling anyone our names until baby is here and named (apart from MN obvs grinwink)

OhHowILoveMyPuppies Sun 12-Jul-15 19:55:14

We have a 2.5 year old Penelope. Don't know any others.

TremoloGreen Sun 12-Jul-15 21:30:30

It's a good name to have grin

Not met any little ones, in fact, not met many my age either...

ollieplimsoles Mon 13-Jul-15 22:24:42

I'm due in October op!

Dh chose the name when we first started trying for a baby, and we have loved it ever since. If we have a girl her full name will be Penelope Marie
