Lorraine... — The Bump
Baby Names


What are your thoughts on the name Penelope Lorraine? My middle name is Lorraine. Possible nickname of Penny / Nelly. Great grandma’s name was Nelly Lorraine so that’s where Nelly comes into play.

    That’s a lot of name. If you like Penelope, I’d go with a shorter middle. FWIW, I think Lorraine would be a refreshing first name.

  • How long is your last name? I think the name is lovely but could be a mouthful of you have a long last name.

    Lorraine as the first was our original go to but seemed impossible to find a good middle name to attach to it.

    I love nn Nelly. 

    Lorraine is a lot with Penelope but I don’t think it really matters is it’s a special family name to you. 
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE! Lorraine is an underused iambic middle name (think Marie and Nicole) that pairs well with so many names. I think it is a GREAT combo!
  • I think it sounds great
