How about trying Penelope with a zero if you want to name another animal that name? Even though it might look weird.
I hate, though, that my room names can't say the names of the animals. I have to put the kinds of animals I have in the rooms, like "dog, snake, lizard", but even some of those I can't use. I can't use "googles".

I named my Egyptian room "Egyptian". See if that works. Also try to capitalize some letters in room names. I know some people who have done that and it took. I'm talking about the second or third letter or something like that.
The whole room thing is stupid, especially when you have more than 10 webkinz and want to name the room Casper's Room (for example) and it won't let you. And for some reason, I tried changing my clydesdales room from TicTac's Room to something like TicTac's Modern Room and it said it wouldn't let me som i took away "modern" and it still wouldn't let me change it to TicTac's Room... so i just exited and everything was fine but its still annoying....
I have seen multiple Penelope's in the Clubhouse! You should try Penny and just say that's her nickname and her real name is Penelope.
I am soooo beyond frustrated with Ganz right now!!! We just got the mouse and the coco dragon. Mouse was adopted just fine, but Ganz REFUSES to allow my daughter to name her dragon Penelope. WILL SOMEONE EXPLAIN TO ME HOW "PENELOPE" COULD BE A BAD/SUGGESTIVE WORD!!?? It just boggles the mind how Ganz comes up with their "words not allowed" list. Now they are applying it to names on the webkins? To quote Juno, "That's a big bucket of NO!" Oh, and to try and get a list of these words isn't an option either! Whatever they did to their thing during this mornings maintenance they made it worse. Any words of help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for letting a frustrated parent vent.
Well I have FANTASTIC NEWS REGARDING THIS PROBLEM!!! I called Ganz yesterday and this morning I got a return call from a tech. She went into the account and changed the Dinosaurs name from Shelly to Penelope!! My daughter is elated!! Pays to gribe now and then.
gtownglitter-I also had to just name the room "Egyptian". I wanted to start a second room of that theme also and the only thing I could get to work was "A Egyptian". I couldn't do Egyptian 1 and 2 or anything like that. It was pretty frustrating, but this at least helped a little so that I know for sure what the rooms are.
I am also frustrated by words not allowed either in naming rooms or kinz chat. It makes it hard to specify what you are looking for. I did notice a interesting name for a pet in the trade room last night and wondered how it made it through the censor. Ghetto Babies. How does that work? I can't say box or month and you can have a name like that?
I know, it is REALLY frustrating, even with rooms. I tried tons of words, trying to name my dalmation room. Finally, I came up with "Spot", and it let me keep that. I told my cousin about that, and she said, "Spot? There's nothing wrong with that. I have to name most of my rooms after my pet." But my dalmation's name isn't Spot, it's Dipstick. I thin it's strange they allowed me to name her that, but I'm not alllowed to name her room that!
I have seen a LOT worse names than that in the clubhouse, too. They want people to be cautious about naming their rooms, yet their filter doesn't catch some of the VERY obscene names (so nasty, I can't even write them here). If it started at the ground and then went up, I could see that.
I think the name Penelope is not admissible because of the first 5 letters, it too closely resembles 'something else.'
I know, My friend named her cat Rochelle and because it has the 'word' in the middle, it was unacceptable.
Ganz is really frustrating people over their "Not Allowed list of Words" They should really loosen up because this problem has been around for a while and there is still no solution to it besides working around it.
