Is there a St. Penelope???   I am searching the name for friends who named their baby after it.

Wellll.... I looked through the (pretty-much exhaustive) Patron Saints Index, and I looked in both my copies of Butler's, and sorry to say, I don't think there is one. :(

There's no Penelope listed in the Martyrology, either.

The Greek Orthodox have a philanthropic women's organization called Daughters of Penelope, but that is all I could find.

Sorry!

In Homer's Odyssey, Penelope was the wife of Odysseus and waited 20 years for his return from the Trojan war.  She can be held up as an example of a faithful wife, albeit, non-Christian.

I'm not aware of any St. Penelope.

In the little pamphlet, "Is it a Saint's Name" (Tan Books), next to Penelope, it says "Irene", as if this is the Christian form of it...
