Me and hubby was torn between Daisy and Florence. We loved Penelope with nick name as nelly, but I have a cousin called penny which I new it would get shortened to, also both parents hated them name even tho not their decision still had an influence. Both gorgeous but biased with the Daisy :-) probably didn't help you haha but thought I'd say my bit

Penelope. It's cute but more mature than Daisy. We are also considering Penelope for our DD due in Feb... So no bias what so ever grin

Much prefer Daisy. Penelope just reminds me of Penelope Keith, although Penny is cute.

Daisy is a bit twee

Arghhhhh lovely

Daisy is cute for a baby and young girl but Penelope will carry her through life with elegance and panache.

Penelope, definitely. As others have said, it's a name for her whole life, not just childhood. I like Daisy as a nn but a bit unsubstantial on its own perhaps?

OK I think we have settled on Penelope grin finally with 4 weeks to spare grin

I love Penelope. Penny is a lovely shortening. But also love penny-lope.

Reminds me of 'Just Good Friends' for those of a similar vintage.

Good choice!

I loved the option of Nell as a NN, but dh wanted Penny.
