    What names do you love, but hate the nicknames associated with it?

    I really love the name Penelope always have always will, but the nicknames that come with it just do not appeal to me at all. Penny is a major one that I just cannot stand it makes me think of coinage and another I heard one of my friends throw out there is Nellie which to me sounds like something I would name a horse. There are a lot of beautiful names out there, but the nicknames are just horrible and I will probably never use this name because I know somewhere down the line someone will throw out the nickname Penny.
