I don't know what I am having but know what the middle names they are going to have and am looking for 1st names which go with them. I like traditional names like Alexander and Charlotte but none of them seem to 'go' with the middle names I want.

The middle names are:
Terrence Earnest
Edna Ann

These names are important to me as they come from our grandparents.

I like William and Frederick, not keen on David.

I like Penny but not Penelope, are there any other girls names which Penny can be a nickname of?

Due to close family and friends can't have Emily or Sophie.

Sorry, scratch Emma. That doesn't work with Edna.

What about Flora? Or maybe Genevieve, Leonie, Leontine?

Thank you everyone, I've got some more names to add to the list and maybe we will be able to agree on one.

I guess Penny could also stand for Penrose, Penina, Giuseppina or Perrine? Or maybe Aspen? Or Perenelle? Peonia? Peony?

Or maybe Millicent? Because cent -> Penny? 😅

But I personally really like Penelope smile

Does it have to be 2 middles?What about Earnest Terrence, or Annabel Edna?

Lots of good suggestions for first names above.

But without wanting to upset anyone can I politely suggest you check the spelling of the boys' names. It would be such a shame to call your child after a grandparent but have the name spelled incorrectly.

The usual spelling in the UK is Terence. Terrence is a variant, though used much more rarely.

Earnest, however, is not a name, it's an adjective meaning serious or determined.

The name is spelled Ernest.

Hope you find something lovely to go with them.
