Sister to Sebastian Joel.

She would be Penelope Jane.

I really like it, and would have it on my girls list if dh was in agreement.

Love it, also love Jane.

Love it. It was on our shortlist for DD.

It's my number 1 choice for this bump if I can convince DH.

Read on here that Poppy is a nickname (as well as Penny of course!) for it which I had never heard of but made me like it even more!

I don't like it, Sorry

Great name.

I quite like it and I love Nellie for short.

Chinlo Fri 18-Nov-16 17:59:45

It's alright. I do like the nickname Penny.

Lutrine Fri 18-Nov-16 18:44:45

Lovely! Really like Penny as a nickname, and it flows really nice with Jane.

I like it, though paired with Jane it does sound like s character from a 50s children's TV programme ....'Bill and Ben and Penelope Jane'

Chinlo Fri 18-Nov-16 19:37:28

Penny Jane is good.

Penny Jane, is in my ears, and in my eyes!

Elbi Fri 18-Nov-16 20:18:08

It's lovely!! Hadn't thought about the Penny Jane point above though.

Penelope Jane is a lovely name.

Penelope jane is lovely and goes perfectly with your boys names. xx

SpidersFromMars Fri 18-Nov-16 21:32:44

Penny or Nellie. Lovely.

Foxsox Fri 18-Nov-16 21:34:59

I love it
Had also never heard of Poppy as the nn but agree that makes it more lovely 👍

My dd2 (7) is Penelope ... usually known as Nell or Nelly. I love it obviously!

Penelope Jane is good grin

MollyHuaCha Fri 18-Nov-16 21:41:52

It's beautiful. Go for it wink

Pluto30 Fri 18-Nov-16 21:52:42

Love it.

Unfortunately hate Penny as a nickname, but Poppy is sweet. I heard someone mention Polly as a nickname once too.

Really really dislike the name, but your choice of Penelope Jane goes very well with Sebastian Joel. I obviously like names that have the same sort of sound/amount of syllables. Didn't do it intentionally with my DC, it is just the way it happened.

It's just ok for me; wouldn't think much of it, negative or positive, if I met one.

Love it.

Love it. Wanted it for DD3 but where we live (French speaking country) it is pronounced Penny-Lope so we went with something else. Go for it OP
