Middle Name Issues (is 2 okay?!)

Sep 11th, 2017, 12:09 PM   #1

So we have settled on Penelope (Penny for short) for our baby but we're having issues with the middle name.

Husbands family have "requested" via email I may add , that we use his mums name as a middle name. The answer is no, firstly asking via email is just weird and secondly she isn't winning Grandmother of the year. My mum takes more to do with my DS and I'm not using her name either.

Anyway, I always wanted to use my Great Grandmothers name as she was such a fascinating, strong woman. Her name was Isabella (called herself Belle) but with Penelope it would mean than baby's initials are P.I.G .

My middle name is Jane and I think Penelope Jane is nice too, just upset at loosing the Isabella.

What's your preference?

Penelope Isabella (PIG)
Penelope Jane (PJG)
Penelope Isabella Jane (PIJG)
Not so keen on Penelope Belle

Ha to the email! I would not give the initials pig, I like Jane best but if you really wanted to use Isabella then I would go for the two middle names.

They requested? Who does that?!

Penelope Isabella sounds really nice but PIG... It's a no no

If you are only considering the 3 names I'd go for Penelope Isabella Jane, it sounds nice too x

the initials P.I.G is a HUGE no-no....I kind of like Penelope Isabella Jane. That way you won't lose Isabella in the name!
