unique middle name for Penelope?

hi there,
so my husband and i are ready to try for our second child, so of course i’m planning the name! we have a daughter names [name]Isabel[/name] [name]Honey[/name]…the name has such meaning to us, it seems hard to find another name to go with! if we have another girl I think we are set on the name [name]Penelope[/name], nickname [name]Nel[/name] or [name]Nellie[/name], however I need a middle name that works as a sister name to [name]Isabel[/name] [name]Honey[/name]. So far we have these middles that have meaning, but am looking for other ideas too:

Thoughts on any of these with [name]Penelope[/name]? Other ideas for unique middle names? Other ideas for first names/middle combos that would work well as a sister name? Thank so much!!!

Out of your middle name choices, I think [name]Sugar[/name] goes the best with [name]Honey[/name], but I’m not sure if [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Sugar[/name] flows that well. When I first read [name]Isabel[/name] [name]Honey[/name], I thought of [name]Penelope[/name] Bloom or [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Blossom[/name].

I also recommend you look through britishbabynames’s Whimsical Word-Names list for some more ideas: http://www.britishbabynames.com/blog/2012/10/whimsical-word-names.html

Good [name]Luck[/name]!

Thank you! I will definitely check out the link…[name]Sugar[/name] does have meaning to us ([name]Sugar[/name], [name]Sugar[/name]) was our first song! So, I do like it but agree its not the best with [name]Penelope[/name]…

From your options I really like [name]Penelope[/name] [name]June[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Mae[/name] but I don’t think they go well with [name]Isabel[/name] [name]Honey[/name] (btw her is gorgeous !).
I love the previous suggestion of [name]Penelope[/name] Bloom!

Other options :
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Wren[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Lark[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Snow[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] Soul
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Olive[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Divine[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Meadow[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] Sweet
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Lovely[/name]

Good luck!

What’s your surname’s first initial and how many syllables does it have?

Thank you for the ideas! I agree nothing seems to flow as well as [name]Isabel[/name] [name]Honey[/name]…do you guys have other first name ideas? I love [name]Penelope[/name] but it is hard to find a middle that flows well…seems like it needs to be one syllable. Our last name starts with an N and is 2 syllables.

First of all do you want the middle to be another word name like [name]Honey[/name] ?

If so how about :
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Leaf[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Moon[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Peach[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Dune[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] Shine
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Plum[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Star[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Rue[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Dove[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Dream[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Cloud[/name]

Other suggestions for [name]Isabel[/name] sister(i think all your names from yout signature goes well with [name]Isabel[/name] )


[name]Isabel[/name] [name]Honey[/name] is such a light sugary name. I think [name]Penelope[/name] works gorgeously with [name]Isabel[/name] but I do think you need to go with a quirky potentially southern-sounding middle name (like [name]Honey[/name]) which in all honesty rules out [name]June[/name], [name]Pearl[/name], and [name]Mae[/name] their far to sophisticated and grown-up teamed with [name]Honey[/name]. Yet I think [name]Sugar[/name] is just too candy induced with [name]Honey[/name]. [name]Sugar[/name] and [name]Honey[/name] is just an over-kill in my mind. But [name]Clark[/name] is great! [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Clark[/name] sounds so awesome : )
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Lux[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Leighton[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Grey[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Ellis[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Juno[/name] (variant of [name]June[/name] but works better with [name]Honey[/name])
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Liv[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Willow[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Isis[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Niamh[/name]

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Snow[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Sunshine[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Lark[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Wren[/name]

[name]Just[/name] thought I’d chime in that I love bellerose’s suggestion of [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Moon[/name]. I think it would be lovely next to [name]Isabel[/name] [name]Honey[/name]. But I think you should pick another word name with meaning to you.

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Bea[/name] or [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] nn [name]Penny[/name] [name]Bee[/name]

OMG [name]Penny[/name] [name]Bee[/name] is the cuttest thing ever !

Thanks everyone! I am definitely looking for a light, sweet name like [name]Honey[/name]…but not too much (I agree [name]Sugar[/name] is over kill)…a word name would be great but doesn’t have to be…[name]Just[/name] something cute and different to compliment her sister! Others I have thought about or like from above:

My favorites are [name]Penelope[/name] [name]June[/name] or [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Clark[/name] (my maiden name)…I just don’t know if they are sweet enough!!

Others ideas

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Night[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Storm[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Fate[/name]

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]June[/name] is very lovely, but I wouldn’t really call it “sweet”. Same with [name]Clark[/name], since it feels rather masculine.

What about [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Spring[/name]?

[name]Glad[/name] you agree I thought so too!


[name]Penny[/name] bee is adorable!!! [name]Love[/name] it! But we do call my daughter honey bee or Bizzie bee alot! I was thinking if we went with [name]June[/name] we would use [name]June[/name] bug or [name]Nellie[/name] bug. I love the color ideas though, violet is pretty and I also love spring! So many great ideas! :slight_smile:

The name [name]Bird[/name] also has meaning but I don’t think it flows well…

I can see your second baby girl wanting to have a bee name too, so honey bee and penny bee fit together like peas (or should I say like bees) in a pod.

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Bird[/name] isnt that bad …
[name]How[/name] about a name of a bird
