Reality star Kourtney Kardashian is a new mom once again after giving birth to daughter Penelope Scotland Disick on July 8. This is the second child for the 33-year-old brunette and longtime boyfriend Scott Disick. The two also share a 2-year-old son named Mason. "The entire Kardashian/Jenner clan was at the hospital and everyone was super excited," confirmed a source. We don't know yet if the baby will go buy Penelope or the more common version Penny, but it's a unique name either way. There aren't a lot of celebrities that share the newest Kardashian girl's name. Here is a look at some the famous people named Penelope.

Penelope Cruz

The Spanish stunner , who was born in Madrid in 1974, is easily the most famous Penelope in the world today. Not only has she appeared in box office hits like "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," but she also dated some of the most famous men in Hollywood. Before settling down with fellow Oscar-winner Javier Bardem, she dated the likes of Tom Cruise and Matthew McConaughey. She became a mom for the first time last January when she and Javier welcomed son Leonardo into the world.

Penelope Ann Miller

Born in 1964 as Penelope Andrea Miller, the beautiful blonde actress has been appearing in movies for more than 25 years. Among her most famous movies are "Kindergarten Cop," "Carlito's Way," and recent Best Picture winner "The Artist." The star, who was previously married to funnyman Will Arnett, has been with husband James Huggins since 2000 and has two children.

Penny Marshall

Though she was born as Carole Penelope Marshall in 1942, the famous filmmaker opted to use her middle name and go by Penny. She has been in many movies as an actress, including several in which she played herself. However, her greatest achievements have come from behind the camera. Penny has directed hit movies like "Big" and "A League of Their Own." She has also served as the producer and director of the 1990 Best Picture nominee "Awakenings."
