I really like Pen and Penny. However, we rejected this cos Penelope is not a v nice name in our opinion. Also, some dim folk will pronounce it Penny-Lope ( a teacher did this to a Penny in my class when I was at school.)

I agree with the others - love Penny, but don't like Penelope. we tried very hard o like it for dd2, but even though we couldn't come up with another name (and didn't until she was a couple of weeks old!) we crossed it off our list.

Great name I like Penelope, and the character as well, good strong female role model.

Makes me think of Just Good Friends. Which for me is a good thing

I like it but would go for Penny and not Pen for everyday.

I love it to - Penny for everyday - we were going to call my DS Penny if he was a dd as he was conceived when all 3 of the family, me, dh and dd were on peniciliin!

I like Penny, and Penelope, but not a fan of 'Pen' for some reason.

I dont like Pen either. Love nell. If you were going for the long version.

Liking Penelope and Penny muchly. Not overboard on Pen. I think it's catching on, but not at a Grace-pace.

Penny is lovely.
Penelope is too much of a mouthful.
Pen is also nice.
Go for it! grin
