Gender: F Origin of Penny: English, diminutive of Penelope Penny's Popularity in 2016: #693

Like Peggy and Patsy, the kind of zesty moniker young Judy Garland would sport in her early let's-put-on-a-show flicks. It fell out of favor (and the Top 1000) for a while, but has recently rebounded by reentering the charts in 2013. Expect it to continue gaining traction as a result of surprise hit Penelope, which currently ranks Number 27 in the US, Number 76 in New Zealand, and Number 69 in England and Wales.
