I got so upset when I was younger and my mother told me that I could not name a daughter Penny Lane from the song by The Beatles, but then what happens!? Kate Hudson's character in the film Almost Famous has that as her "groupie" name. Humpf!

Well I'm called Penny and up until around 16 I hated this name but now that I'm older I really like it. It's nice to be an individual and a great name for anyone.

I think this is a cute name. I have always liked it and you don't see this name used very often. On the tv show Desperate Housewives Lynette Scavo played by Felicity Huffman, her on-screen daughter's name is Penny.

Maybe this would be a good name for a woman or girl who was poor.

In Oh Brother, Where Art Thou? Penny is Everett's ex-wife taking care of their seven daughters. I love her for her feminism: "I can, I am, and I will!"

It's very cute, but not quite official-sounding enough. It would be better to name your daughter Penelope and call her Penny.

Penny is a character from Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog. She is very generous and idealistic.

I think Penelope is a gorgeous name--but this inevitable nickname is the only thing keeping me from using it. Eventually, people are going to call my daughter (if I have one) Penny. And to me, that's like calling someone Nickel or Dime! It's a freakin' coin!

I just got a poodle puppy and we decided to name her Penny. It's such a cute name! It's not overly girly, but you can definitely tell it's a girl's name, and I've loved every character named Penny I've seen.

I don't know why, but I love this name! If I got another dog I'd probably name her Penny, since my dog is named Copper :)

This is my cats name. I can't say it's one of my favorite names, but it's okay as a nickname for Penelope.
-- hkols  11/3/2014
I MUCH prefer this over 'Penelope' which I just never cared for.

Despite reminding me of change (Nickles, Dimes, Quarters and pennies) (: haha, I wish for the name to be used more.

I mean it's a hell of a lot better than naming your kid 'Cash\Kash' which are RIDICULOUSLY and ABSURDLY within the top 1000.

My name is Penny ~ endured years of jokes, comments and innuendos, trust me, I've heard them all.
But there is no way I would change my name. Love its uniqueness and its simplicity.
Went to a school with 2, 500 students, end of 1st year the only other Penny left, leaving just me = win.
Upside:- Stick your name on something and everyone knows who it belongs to.
You never hear "Sorry, wrong Penny."
Almost Downside:- Never finding anything with your name on it but that isn't such a problem now that personalization has become big business.

I think Penny goes very well as a first name. I like Penny more than Penelope. Penny is a sweet and unique name without being so pretentious.
