    Debacle: magnolia vs Penelope

    I have a sweet baby girl waiting for her name. I am torn trying to choose the proper name for her! I love the name magnolia Nn noli... When I heard it I thought this is it. The other day I almost called her Mongolia so now I'm not so sure. Her middle name will be Constance after her grandma. I know this is a big name and that's what I'm worried about. Penelope is a back up for magnolia but I don't think I love it. So I need some input- am I dooming her to a name she will hate? Any ideas to shorten Constance ? I did like other mn's but I think someone told grandma we might be using her name so there's no turning back now? I really appreciate your advice my husband is tired of talking a bout names.

    Magnolia Constance
    Penelope Constance

    Other mn's I liked : sky, Uma, Isis, ulma, ????

    Thanks for your help!

    Both beautiful. Penelope would probably be my baby name choice - but it is becoming far, far too popular. I think it will end up top ten in the next few years.
    I say go Magnolia Constance, its gorgeous x

    Magnolia Skye is my favourite by far! I agree with pp about Penelope and Magnolia is surprisingly refreshing X

    I love Magnolia & the nn Noli. I also love Penelope - but unfortunately suzywoo is right, it's much too popular. Magnolia could always go by Maggie, Nola, or even Lia if she ever wanted to. Magnolia Constance is lovely.

    If you love Magnolia, by all means use it! Those around your daughter will quickly become accustomed to the name. I like that it's a flower, but less predictable than Lily or Rose.
