The only thing I can think of is a possible connection with famous
writers. Charles Dickens wrote the Pickwick Papers and Sir Walter
Scott wrote the Waverley Novels. The only owl I can think of is
Edward Lear's "The Owl and the Pussy Cat" but perhaps some other
contributors to the ng know a bit more.

I found this thread 21 years later!

I was researching my PENN family tree and asked my aunt why my father was called Waverley. She mentioned that my grandfather loved the jingle of the Pickwick, the Owl and the Waverley pen so went on to call him Waverley PENN.
