Penelope vs. Francesca

Hi! We posted last night about how we loved Francesca with no NN. My husband saw the name Penelope and loves I on the other hand don’t know which is better? NN issue will be solved later thanks so much!

The Top Baby Name is...

Name Votes
Penelope 48% (10 votes)
Francesca 52% (11 votes)


I prefer Francesca. Penelope is nice, but it seems to have become quite popular all of a sudden. That would worry me.

They are both nice names, although different in style, imo. I think it would depend upon your last name as to which first name sounds best.

Tough, but my vote went to Francesca. Just has a bit more gratitas and elegance.

*Sorry, meant gravitas, not gratitas.

I like Francesca better. I never understood the resurgence of Penelope.

Two of my favorites..I can see why you are having a tough time deciding. Making my decision based on the names themself (not knowing last name, mn, or sibling names) I’m gonna go with Francesca, it has the elegance that Penelope lacks and it’s not as used (been seeing Penelope a lot lately) hth gl!

You can’t go wrong with either, but I like the nicknames for Francesca better, so that’s why it got my vote.

Hey, my name is Francesca, but people call me Fran. I often get called Franny or Fanny as a joke. Here in the UK, Fanny is another name for a women’s private parts. Therefore, my vote went to Penelope, a cute and classic name that i love. Also cute nicknames; Penny, Poppy, Nell, Nellie, Ellie, etc.
