    Penelope: Vintage or Trendy?

    How do you view Penelope? Is it still a vintage beauty to you or just very trendy?
    What sibling names of the same vibe would you pair it with?

    To me, the name is very interesting since it has such a "grand" vibe in German (at least to me) and I don't think it's even in the Top 500, whilst in English, it does feel a little more modern.

    Btw. I don't care if you dislike the name, at all, so if that's all you have to say then please do not comment!

    I would say, according to your definitions, closer to Violet (and I think Violet and Penelope make a great pair! haha), but while I don't think it's really TRENDY yet, it is very associated to pop-culture, from Greek mythology to celebrities (Penelope Cruz and the Kardashian little girl) to the movie Penelope that came out several years ago. I mean, I don't think it's really trendy yet, but it does have a very pop-culture feel to it, if that makes sense.

    Penelope always felt very regal and ancient to me, because I read the Odyssey as a child and studied Latin and Greek mythology in school. To me, "vintage" means names that were popular in the 1900s to 1940s, and I've never met or heard of anyone in real life named Penelope who is over the age of ten, so it definitely feels "trendy" as opposed to "vintage"- but the trend it fits into is the classic Greek names that feel fresh and maybe even a little quirky, like Zoe and Calliope. They're cute and bouncy but also old and regal. It's definitely a trend I'm a fan of, and I hope it sticks around and transcends the trend status.

    I think right now it is still vintage but popular. I think if you give it 5 more years it will be in megapopular Ava territory which is too bad because it is a gorgeous name. I would go with Penelope and Ariadne for sisters.
