    Other than "Penelope", what else could "Penny" be short for?

    Also general opinions on the name are welcome I always imagined it as a sort of old lady name but it's really growing on me as a sweet, sunny name.

    I love Penny, and only realized it was a nn for Penelope a few weeks ago. I didn't care for Penelope before that, but now I totally get the appeal. It is quite trendy, so I understand wanting to find something different for the birth certificate.

    A quick search for girl's names containing PEN on super search yields:
    Aspen
    Peneli
    Penina
    Peniel
    Penine
    Penrose
    Peninit
    Pensee (accent over the first e)
    Spencer

    I kind of like Penina/Peninah and Penrose

    No problem! Penrose was my favorite, too. And I was just thinking Aspen and Spencer (though I usually don't care for those names, especially on girls) would be unique, creative ways to get to Penny.

    The first thing I thought of was Persephone, although I'm not sure how wearable that is in real life.
