What if we only have ONE girl?!

My husband and I had decided on [name]Fiona[/name] [name]Juliet[/name] if this is a girl (Due in [name]April[/name]!) However, we [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Penelope[/name] nn [name]Pippa[/name]… but we had decided that [name]Penelope[/name] sounded more like a younger child, not the eldest. Then my mom said the other day, “What if you only have one girl?” We hadn’t even thought of that! So now we’ve decided to go with [name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name]. But we cannot find the perfect middle name! Our top 2 right now are [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Juno[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Olivia[/name], though we have also kicked around [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Dean[/name], [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Claire[/name], [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Juliet[/name], and [name]Penelope[/name] [name]June[/name]. We want the mn to go with [name]Penelope[/name] and [name]Pippa[/name], since we will be calling her by both. Advice and suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated! :slight_smile: …Of course we will probably go through all of this and then find out she is a he!

I personally dislike [name]Juno[/name]. [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Olivia[/name] is a bit of a mouthful but I do like [name]Olivia[/name].

What about these:
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Dahlia[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Eve[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Jane[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Bryony[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Helen[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Olive[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Alice[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Alexis[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Elise[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Naomi[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Rosalyn[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Louise[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Megan[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Bridget[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name]/[name]Pippa[/name] [name]Lucille[/name]

Like any?

[name]Penelope[/name] [name]June[/name] is my favorite. good luck!

Thanks for the suggestions! I like [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Pearl[/name], but don’t know about having PP as initials :-/ I also like how [name]Elise[/name] sounds as a mn, but it is my 6 yr old niece’s name. We like [name]Juno[/name] b/c she is the [name]Roman[/name] goddess of marriage and childbirth. I would like a middle name that had some meaning behind it. If we have a boy his mn will be [name]Newton[/name], for [name]Isaac[/name] [name]Newton[/name] (my husband is a physicist) and [name]Newton[/name]-le-Willows, where my Grandparents grew up in [name]England[/name].

I love [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Juno[/name] even though it’s heavy on the mythology. My next choices would be [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Claire[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name] [name]June[/name]. I think [name]Penelope[/name] sounds better with a one or two syllable middle name so that’s why I didn’t choose [name]Olivia[/name] or [name]Juliet[/name] even though I like them too! Best wishes!

Thanks mischa! I agree that [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Juno[/name] is heavy on the mythology… For some reason I’m just having so much trouble with the mn. I literally dreamt of names last night!

I love [name]Penelope[/name] “[name]Pippa[/name]” I would never have thought of that as a nn.
[name]How[/name] about:
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Iris[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Kate[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Lilith[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Eve[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Anna[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Rose[/name]
[name]Penelope[/name] [name]Louise[/name]

I like [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Cate[/name]! …my sister’s name is [name]Catherine[/name] :slight_smile: But she already has one niece named after her, while my sister [name]Rachel[/name] hasn’t had anyone named after her. So would that be unfair? I don’t want to hurt feelings and I love [name]BOTH[/name] of my sisters! You also listed [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Anna[/name] and [name]Penelope[/name] [name]Louise[/name], which I found funny since I am [name]Anna[/name] [name]Louise[/name]!
