A variant of Penelope, Penelopie is a girl’s name. It has Greek origins, and Homer’s Odyssey gives us an insight into why it means “weaver.” The story goes that Penelope, the wife of the hero Odysseus, was approached by many suitors during her husband’s long absence. Faithful in love, she insisted they wait until she completed weaving a shroud. And cleverly, she would undo the progress made during the day to delay it further. Naming baby Penelopie is not only an ode to an exemplary woman but can encourage your little one to think outside the box.
