Meaning of Penelope - What does the name Penelope means?
Pronunciation:
pen-el-o-pee
Gender: Girl Name
Origin: English
Name Meaning: Derived from the Greek Penelope, a name borne in Greek mythology by Odysseus' wife, who, for twenty years, patiently awaited his return. The etymology of the name is debated. Some believe it is derived from the Greek penelops (a kind of duck), since Penelope was said to have been exposed to die as an infant and was fed and protected by a duck. Others think it might be derived from pene (thread on a bobbin) and give it the definition "weaver, worker of the loom," for Penelope spent her evenings weaving and unweaving while she waited for her husband to return
