    Tuppenny

    Hi!

    The other day I found the name Tuppenny and I think it's sweet, charming and vintage.
    What do you think?

    Tuppenny is sweet and rather charming. I don't know if it's "vintage," though; does it have a history of use? It looks like the word tuppenny, "twopenny," used as a name, like Tuppence, which I've also seen as a name once or twice, at least in books.

    Because it's a word name literally meaning "two pennies," which isn't very much, I don't know as I'd be thrilled to see it used as a first name. It could be lovely in the middle, paired with the perfect first name.
    "He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names."
    Psalm 147:4

    As it means two pennies I'm not fond of it as a name

    Considering we still use the coin, probably not the best idea! Lol.

    Really not a good idea, especially as tuppence is slang for your lady bits over here!
