Thoughts on the name penny..

I would choose Penelope as the proper name though. It's so elegant and classy. If its PTA mumsy it would definitely need to be a grammer school. Penny/ Pen are very cute as a nickname

Love Penelope, but I just can't seem to like Penny. I get all the head girl/PTA woman associations too. And Penny Crayon, who was a right tit.

All the Pennys I've known have been mad as a box of frogs.

It's a good name.

It is a sweet gentle name.

Dog's name, sorry. Penelope is good though, just don't like the shortening.

I'm called Penelope and I do like it. Am not in PTA (expecting first baby next month so maybe one day) do have a decent job and am only a little bit mad but am blaming pregnancy hormones! My family call me Penel which I love, friends call me Penny, Penn or Pen. Have lived overseas and works well in Europe too.

I love it.

I also have to tell you this, though it may out me. For several years I taught a quite angry teenager who was genuinely called Penny Lane. She hated it, bless her.

My friend's mum used to use Penny to refer to our lady bits when we were little girls so it is a no-no for me. The same friend's mum now has a dog called Penny and was mortified when I pointed out her dog is called "Lady Bits"
