Meaning & Origins

Name borne in Greek mythology by the wife of Odysseus who sat patiently awaiting his return for twenty years, meanwhile, as a supposed widow, fending off by persuasion and guile a pressing horde of suitors for her hand in marriage. Her name would seem to derive from Greek pēnelops ‘duck’, and play is made with this word in the Odyssey. However, this may obscure a more complex origin, now no longer recoverable. The name is recorded in England from the 16th century onwards.
1,329th in the U.S.
Southern French: from a diminutive of French Bourrasse (see Bouras).
