    That said, Penelope looks off to me, too. It's so long and flowing compared to your other children. I much prefer Penny on its own (it's a closer Beatles reference this way, too).

    I think any of your choices work, but I like Penelope Celeste best on style and sound. Ruby Celeste is my second choice.

    I'm sorry to hear you're having a difficult pregnancy. I hope for your health and baby's, too.
    Thank you so much for your advise and concern. I am sure everything will work out with my health. I think that's the reason why I am name obsessing, it's much more fun then thinking of medical issues if it were up to me I'd go with Penny straight as a first name but dh will not have it

    I think in terms of flow, Penelope Celeste Greene works best. I would avoid a middle name of Christine with your last name (too rhyme-y).

    Ruby Penelope is adorable but might also be too rhyme-y. I could see it as the name of a little girl but maybe not as the name of a CEO, ya know?

    If I were you I'd consider the name Prudence Hope, love that song and Prue is such a cute nn. But I respect that your favorites are Penelope and Ruby

    First Names?:
    Elinor, Cecily, Isobel, Lila, Opal -- all DH approved
    Middle Names?:
    Andromeda, Arwen, Autumn, Briseis, Calliope, Calypso, Ilaria, Isla, Isleta, Juliet, Luna, Oceane, Serafina, Skye, Vivienne -- all DH's ideas

    We will probably never have a boy but:
    Gavin, Arthur, Roland, Owen, Malcolm

    What about Rubina Greene? I feel like this lessens the "color clash" somewhat, but she could still be "Ruby." Celeste is my favorite mn option for either Ruby or Penelope, but I like the significance of Christine.

    I love Penelope. I think Penelope Hope Greene is a great name.

    Have you considered Prudence? Dear Prudence is one of my favorite Beatles songs.
    Under construction...

    I voted for Ruby Celeste. I don't think Ruby Greene is an issue at all, and it goes with your other kids' names MUCH better than Penelope.

    (And I don't like the names Penelope or Penny at all, I admit, but love Ruby.)
