    Phoebe or Penelope?

    Personally I love the name Penelope but hate the name Phoebe. I think Penelope is beautiful but Phoebe is just annoying (sorry if that offends anyone). But, i find that most people disagree with me. Everyone I know love Phoebe a lot more...

    So what do you think? Phoebe or Penelope?

    Phoebe! I adore Phoebe. For some reason, Penelope sounds slightly ridiculous to use on an actual person. I don't know; it seems kind of cartoonish-- 'puh nella pee'. Probably because I've never actually met someone named Penelope... I bet if I did, my opinion would change.

    I pretty much completely agree with you. I love the name Penelope but find Phoebe a little annoying.
    Penelope is fun, pretty, classic, and cute. While I love the name Phoebe only because of the book Catcher in the Rye, I still am a little bothered by it. Penelope is much better.
