Gender: M Meaning of Penrose: "top of the heath" Origin of Penrose: Cornish and Welsh place-name

Popularity: this week.

Penrose, an ancient place-name and surname derived from several villages in Cornwall, Wales, and the Welsh border country of England, might work as a first name though we feel the second syllable makes it better suited as a girls' name than a boys'. While a boy Penrose could be called Pen (and might blush to reveal his full name), a girl could be Penny or Rosie.
