I think you should stick to Penelope if it is your favorite name. The only other similar name I can think of is Penina.

If you see your sister in law a lot, it might be a problem. You could still name her Penelope, but maybe call her Nellie? I think the following are great alternatives
Ruby
Melody
Hallie
Calla
Cassidy/Cassandra/Cassia "Cassie"
Zoe
Stella
Scarlett
Charlotte
Lucy
Camille
Caroline
Margaret "Meg/Maggie"
Catherine "Catie"
Natalie
Rachel
Rebecca "Becca"
Rosalie
Cara
Claire
Mariel
Marni

Good luck!

I wouldnt name my daughter the same as a dog if its one you know well!
We had the same problem with our neighbours dog called Ruby and we wanted to name our daughter Ruby. So glad we didn’t now! Out daughter loves next doors dog and it would have been horrible her sharing the dog name!

We went for something totally different.

You could have Jennifer, Jenny for short

Percephone, Percy for short
Alexandra, Lexi or Ally
Georgia, Ginny
Elenor, Ella
Isabelle, Bella
Georgina, Gina

Any you like?

If you love it use it. My aunt has a dog named Scarlett and people name baby girls that here. I think nothing of it.

I would choose a different name BUT only if there is one you also love. Otherwise stick to Penelope but forget the nickname Penny and call her either Penelope or one of the other suggestions above such as Ellie
