I like this name when pronounced in English (Pe-ne-lop-EE). It sounds magical, musical, mythical. Although I would not name my daughter like this because in French, it is pronounced PAY-NAY-LOP. Kinda takes all its charm away, if you ask me.
Haha, Frabac, there're many ways to mutilate the name "Penelope" / "Pénélope", and I don't consider the French version mutilation - nor to be taking away the magic and charm of the name - at all. In fact... it's a different level of the same mystique that rings about it, and personally, I've fallen in love with the French version. Now I respond to it (among francophones) as easily as I do "Penelope". I just take it as a variation on my own name, albeit a more beautiful one.
Penelope's meaning in most name books is Weaver or Dream Weaver. Interpreted as Creative.
Penelope is usually shortened to Penny. Nicknames have been Tuppence or Penpen. Or just Pen. Those who hate it can change it to Nell or Elle or Penn. I like it which is good because I wear it.
Actress Penélope Cruz is a famous bearer.
