Penelope: Its source is pene, a Greek name meaning "Weaver."
Kourtney Kardashian and partner Scott Disick have welcomed their second child, a daughter named Penelope Scotland Disick, sister to older brother, two-year-old Mason. Kourtney released the following statement to E! News:
"Scott and I are overjoyed to welcome our precious angel Penelope Scotland Disick into our lives. We are forever blessed. Mommy and baby are resting comfortably."
Since the name "Penelope" was top on our list of baby names that got away, we couldn't be more smitten with her choice for a first name. Scotland, we're not sure about.
Is it in honour of the father? Is there another sentimental or familial reasoning? We're not sure but as soon as we find it we'll share it with you. Either way, not a horrible middle name and really when you say it together with the lovely first name Penelope, quite charming. We hope her nickname is Penny. Sigh.
Warning: it might seem like an unusual but still common enough pick for your babe, but consider the Kardashian factor. Just as with the name Mason breaking the top 10 baby name list in 2012 in the US, we can likely expect to see a spike in little Penelopes at the playground.
