  1. My grandma named her one dog Penny.Then another dog Penny years later.Now I am going to name my puppy Penny Pretty Girl

  2. Our Penny is short for Penelope. We loved the spunkiness of the name Penny, it just fits our spirited daughter so well. Now that she’s older, she does get upset occasionally when kids compare her to the coin, but I think overall she likes the name and how we don’t meet many other Penny’s out there.
