    Question Penelope.... with our last name?

    Hi Berries! I posted a poll of our top 4 girls names, (Margaret, Vivienne, Beatrix, Penelope). Most everyone really likes Beatrix and Vivienne the best, and Beatrix is my current #1 favorite. However, DH really LOVES Penelope, and I do too! I think Penelope is just the kind of name we are looking for and goes great with brothers Sebastian, Oliver, and Elliott. The only problem I see is our last name, Payne-Wardle. Big brother already has this last name (oldest 2, have a different last name altogether as they are my children with my ex-H). DH actually likes the way Penelope Payne-Wardle sounds, he loves alliterations. He was so sweet saying it sounds like poetry to him <3 Anyway, so here I am again, asking fellow name-nerds if it does sound bad, or good, or whatever you think.

    Penelope Payne-Wardle sounds like a comic book character, but that's not a bad thing! Its memorable and sweet, I like it
    Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot

    I love Penelope and think it sounds perfectly fine with your last name. All of your names are fantastic -- you can't go wrong! But I definitely wouldn't worry about the alliteration thing. I know so many people with alliterative names, and it has never seemed like an issue. Penelope Payne-Wardle is lovely!

    I think it's fine. I love the Penny Lane idea. (That song is going to be stuck in my head all day, now. ) Lila + Payne = Lane. Penny Lane. <3
