    Penelope Powell sounds okay. It has alliteration and is L-heavy, but otherwise it sounds fine. I think there are better combos out there, but if you truly love Penelope than it works.

    Unfortunately, I do think it's a bit too much. Since there are not one but two P's in Penelope, it sounds a bit too alliterative with your last name.

    I don't think it's bad, especially if you plan to use a nickname. It's just very snappy. Sounds a bit like the name of a Harry Potter character.
