Annie is lovely. I'm not keen on Penelope if I'm honest but love the nn penny xx

Penelope (but popular at the moment I think)

In that order. Much prefer Anna to Annie.

Penelope is fab.
Annie is not too bad, though I much prefer Anna.

Martha is in the same group as Minnie and Mavis and not to my taste really.

Anna nn Annie

Penelope is absolutely lovely- certainly not at all over-used round here - London suburbs. Has great nicknames too - Penny/Pen/Nell.

I don't like Martha or Annie I'm afraid - and they're a lot more popular among the under-5s in this area.

Annie, followed by Martha.

Prefer Martha or Penelope, although Annie is OK.

annie or penelope dont like martha

Martha is very popular at the moment, if that influences your choice.

Penelope is lovely. Annie is OK, but Anne or Anna might be better as a given name. Anne is very underused but is a lovely name.

Last two babies in my circle of acquaintances were both called Martha

Martha gets my vote, unless your accent means it would be Marfa (like mine) then it's a no from me.
