    It’s weird.  I love James Quinton, but not so much Quinton James. 

     

    Norah Fay is just lovely!

     

    ETA: by weird, I mean that I like those two names together, but always thought of Quinton as more of a middle name… not that the names were weird!

    I like Norah. Penny is ok, but I would like it better if her whole name was Penelope and then Penny was just her nickname.

    I like both boy names

    @skipatroller7:  Norah Fay and Finn(ley?) James.

    I think people are going to have a hard time taking an adult named Penny seriously if she goes into a career like business or law. It’s just to girlish and it doesn’t really age well. 

    I always liked the name Norah, it’s feminine but not frilly and sounds intelligent. It’s much more sophistocated than Penny and I can see a little girl and a middle aged woman being called Norah without it seeming too old or young.  

    Would you guys consider Finnley James? I think a longer first name fits better with James and it doesn’t make me think of anybody but the Finnleys I know in real life.

    I don’t like Quinton, because as soon as I saw the name I pictured a Quinton saying ‘No QUINton, not Quentin. Yeah…it’s a family name.’ every time he introduces himself. It’s an obscure name that doesn’t really stick in your mind, which pretty much guarantees people will be calling him Quentin his whole life.

    @skipatroller7:  personally penny sounds like a nickname. I’d prefer a full name. Everything else is good. Maybe I would spell it Quentin.

    Norah personally makes me think of a beaver ‘nawing’ – so thats out. penny is cute esp if it was short for penelope.

    i prefer penelope fay and just call her penny.

    as well, finlay james and just call him finn.

    i do like the name quinton but that’s my step father’s name and all i picture is a 65 year old guy.

    I choose Norah. Nora was on my list of names for a little girl but my husband doesnt love it and we are having a boy.

    As for boys I like them both the same so I didnt vote.

    I like Norah and Finn.  I’ve also only ever seen Fay spelled “Faye”, interesting.

    I voted for Norah Fay and Finn James 🙂

    ETA: As for PP’s concerns about Quinton being obscure, that’s the way I’ve always seen it and I’ve met a few Quintons. I’ve never met a Quentin and the only one I’ve ever heard of is Tarantino.

    I like Penny, but only if it’s short for Penelope. 

    Also, I always thought Finn was short for Phineas? I’ve never heard the name Finley (or Finnley) used as a first name, only as a last. And it does make me think of Glee, which was sort of a guilty pleasure the first season or two. Hearing the name makes me sort of sad.
