Like vs. Penelope

My husband and I are in love with the name Penelope; however my sister and her husband recently announced that they are using Penelope for their daughter! We haven’t found anything else we love as much though; what names do you think fit into the same category as Penelope? We are using Andrée as a middle name! Thanks! -Eléonore

We’re pretty bummed about it since it took us a long time to agree on one name; but we had never mentioned that we were planning on using Penelope so we can’t be mad at them.

We like Pippa (not loving Philippa though), Matilda, and Rosamund!

We are expecting yes; and I am farther along than my sister but I wouldn’t do that to her. They didn’t know that we loved the name and wanted to use it; and I would feel terrible doing that to her.
We like Sophie, Sophia, Josephine, and Charlotte!

I really like Wilhelmina, but my husband doesn’t; and we aren’t crazy about the other names, sorry!

I love your pick of Josephine! !

Did you try talking to them? If it took you and your hubby so long to agree on one name, maybe they have a few they like. I’m so bummed for you guys that you can’t use it, I love Penelope!

- Sophia Isabelle "Sophie"
- Josephine Grace
- Charlotte Lorraine
- Sophia Josephine
- Ella Sophia
- Ella Grace

What do you think? What middle name were you going to use for Penelope?

Josephine is one of our top ones right now; though we also really like Matilda, Rosamund and Charlotte too!

We haven’t really brought it up only because I don’t want my sister to feel bad; I know they also had a really hard time finding a name too!

We like Ella (and all the others, as we had put in other comments). A middle name is already chosen and mentioned in the poll (Andrée)

Oh hun I’m sorry, I had the same issue with my little sister about 3 years ago. Trust me you should talk to her.

How do you pronounce Andrée?

Josephine is beautiful!

I may talk to her about it once we have decided on a new name; but I don’t want her to feel bad for "stealing" when we never said anything about wanting to use it. I would feel even worse since she announced it to all of our family that they were using it and were very excited.

Andrée is pronounced awn-DRAY

Josephine Andrée is absolutely gorgeous!

If you talk to your sister and she decides not to use Penelope, then great you’ll have your little Penelope Andrée, but if not then Josephine is still very beautiful!

Sophia is cute, but too popular.

Good luck and congrats! When’s your due date? You have to let us know what you decide to go with!

Thank you! We have a few names that are really growing on us, so it’ll be hard for us now! I’ve heard that Sophia is really common, but I have actually never met a Sophia! I though I would have by now since I am a teacher, but I have never had a Sophia in my class.

I’m due August 21; so it’s coming pretty fast and is why we needed your help finding a new name!

Sophia, Emma, and Isabella have been in the top 10 forever! All such pretty names, but your little Josephine defiantly won’t have anyone in her class with that name! I love Josephine now, like ever since I suggested it to you earlier.

Penelope got popular cause of Kourtney K and I see it getting even more popular

So what name are you guys thinking now?

Oooh! Josephina is so freakin cute! I like the "ina" more than the "ine"

Josephina Andree

I adore Penelope, sorry you can’t use it. Isabella would be nice. Do you like
Isabella Victoria or Sophie Isabelle?
posted by guest :: Jul 26, 2013 11:55 PM | report
That’s why it surprises me so much that I’ve never met a Sophia! I’ve had a few Emma and Isabella’s but never any Sophia’s!

As of right now, our top ones are Matilda, Rosamund, Josephine, Charlotte, and Cecilia! We definitely prefer Josephine to Josephina; there is something about the "ina" that we really don’t like.

Andrée has to be the middle name no matter what becuase of it’s importance to us; so your combinations wouldn’t work for us sorry! We like Sophie though

Oh no not Matilda, that’s the one name I can’t stand lol, don’t know why.

Charlotte and Josephine are the prettiest, then Cecilia, and then Rosamund, but it’s kinda weird. Roselyn?
posted by guest :: Jul 27, 2013 12:00 AM | report
We don’t like Roselyn; there is something about the look of "lyn" in names that neither of us like! Matilda is one of my favorites; but my husband has made a pretty good point about how it doesn’t sound the best with our last name in comparison with the others.
posted by Poll Creator :: Jul 27, 2013 12:03 AM | report
Haha well Josephine gets my vote 100% good luck!
posted by guest :: Jul 27, 2013 12:04 AM | report
Thank you! And thank you for all the help! We will probably talk over the names and such and if we still can’t decide, we may make another poll asking which everyone likes the best
posted by Poll Creator :: Jul 27, 2013 12:05 AM | report
I’ve thought of one more name you guys might like

posted by JackieLee :: Jul 27, 2013 12:43 AM | report
Rosalie is all right; but we don’t like it nearly as much as Rosamund or our other favorites sorry!

Ew, Penelope is such an ugly and disgusting name. Don’t know why anyone would burden a beautiful baby girl with such an ugly name when they could use Paris, Peyton, Primrose or even Persephone (which is ugly as well, but better than Penelope)
