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

Help please!

Thanks! We went for Penelope in the end, though it really could've gone either way... Now for some sleep, fingers crossed. smile

Penelope. When I was a very little girl I wanted to be Lady Penelope when I grew up - Thunderbirds. Just think she can have a pink sports car and pink trench coat.

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.
