I like the name Penelope for a first name and our surname is Curtis. Can anyone think of a nice middle name? I think it ought to be pretty short or it would end up a real mouthful.

Also do you think it goes?

Is there a family name you can use?

Didn't put Rose originally as I wasn't sure about Penelope Rose, but now it's growing on me. (BTW Penelope is a lovely name . I don't like the abbreviation Penny, but in Germany it's abbreviated to Nele (pronounced nay-le with the E sounded) which I think is lovely)

How strange you thought of May, that's my middle name, also it's my Granny's, my mum's and DD1's so that's the family one used up already.

I do like Penelope Jane, also that's my best friend's middle name so she'd be pleased!

I like the abbreviation Penny and like names which can be played with as I have always disliked my name, so think it's nice if you can choose a variation yourself, hence DD1 is Eleanor as the possiblities are endless, including Nelly, so I could end up with 2 Nellies!
