Bit stuck. She was born 7 hours ago and is happily feeding now, but what do we call her?

Help please!

Congratulations! The first one is my name and has served me very well, it's lovely ❤️

Thanks! Still a bit shell shocked and DH has gone home to put DS to bed.

We'd like to make a decision when he comes back so we can start calling her something!

And I'm glad you/your DD (not sure which) like it!

Ignore that, my brain is like custard, it's your name...

Both gorgeous and could definitely go together.

Love Nell as a nn for Penelope smile

TunipTheUnconquerable Sun 06-Oct-13 22:13:41

Call her Penelope. Constance is a bit Downton (whether or not there is actually a Constance in it) so it will date.
I am biased because I was meant to be Penelope but my mum's pregnant friend kicked off and said she had bagged it.

Nel is SO sweet. grin
