Penniya - Name Meaning?

Adopting from [name_f]India[/name_f] and looking for an [name_f]Indian[/name_f] girls name, either Hindu or Tamil that could be shortened to [name_u]Penny[/name_u] and have come across Penniya or Peniya but can’t find a name meaning anywhere online. Anyone know anyone or have this name themselves and can shed some light on it’s meaning?

Sorry, I don’t have any idea about the origin of Penniya, nor have I heard it before. But my immediate thought for a suggestion was Purnima for “full moon” (Sanskrit origin, used in Hindi and Tamil communities). Beautiful name and I definitely think [name_u]Penny[/name_u] would work.

I don’t know anyone with that name unfortunately. The only thing I could find is that it might mean feminist or silent worker.
