Scroll down to see more original designs of Penny in Japanese The name Penny when pronounced pe-nEE in Japanese is ペニー with the romaji peni-.
Penny as a non-Japanese name is properly rendered in Japanese using katakana. We also offer Penny in hiragana which generally is considered to be more feminine. Penny in hiragana is ぺにい and has the romaji penii. Notice that the hiragana rendering differs from the katakana due to the fact that katakana has fairly recently evolved to better render non-Japanese sounds into Japanese.
Note that both katakana and hiragana only render syllable sounds. Either may be used and you don't have to worry about any bad or unintended meanings because they don't have any - they are like English letters and simply sound out the name in Japanese characters.
