I am a HUGE fan of The Beatles and searched through all of the albums for names in songs. I was originally expecting a boy kitten and was, without a doubt, settled on the name Rigby (as in Eleanor Rigby).
However, I wound up getting a little girl cat and was in a desperate search for a suitable girl's name. I looked up every girl name I could find in Beatles songs and albums. I settled on Penny Lane (Penny for short).
Although I wasn't in love with the name like I had been with Rigby, once I saw a picture of my kitten, who was as girly as they come, I felt a little better.
I knew I had made the right choice in her name the first time I held her. She is absolutely a Penny!
