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.
Sebastian Dee, Oliver Lee, Elliott Wilford and...
Penelope Lila Payne-Wardle (nn Penny, plus I could also call her Penny Lane <3!)Mom to three boys: Sebastian Dee, Oliver Lee, and Elliott Wilford... TTC a girl (Penelope Lila)!!

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!Mom to Alexander Patrick (9), Madelyn Esther (7), and Genevieve Susan (2). Expecting Theodore James in February 2014!
Baby #4 will be the last for us, so I am kind of sad to be saying goodbye to the beloved names I will now never use! At least I can still come here to encourage others to use them!
