If we have a girl one day we have always been set on Penelope but middle names are difficult. I would like a pretty name but also one which could have meaning. Any suggestions? Our shortlist so far...

Penelope Ada
Penelope Belle
Penelope Wren
Penelope Lucy

My favourite of your options is Belle

MrsDarcy4092 Tue 21-Jun-16 19:08:01

I forgot Penelope Vivienne.

I'm open to suggestions if you can think of anything better?

Not a fan of Lucy as it has the ee sound to the end and is a bit matchy in that way.
Penelope Jade or Faith did come into my head when I read your title.
I like the shorter names with Penelope so would rule Vivienne out on that basis.

Of the remaining ones:
1. Penelope Wren
2. Penelope Belle
3. Penelope Ada

Aw, lots of lovely Penelope's smile

Ha ha Boobz, brilliant!

I think monosyllabic mn is good, or two syllables as long as emphasis is on the first syllable.

Of your suggestions, I'd go with Belle. Beautiful! I'd personally not choose ada because I have difficulty with the two adjacent vowels. And likewise Lucy because I find it a bit hard to say - perhaps because of the two Ls so close together. I do really like the name Lucy though (more than Ada).

I'm a bit unsure about wren as a name. (I prefer it as a nickname, eg short for Lauren, or personality-based.)
