Silence of the Lambs yes, same here - but that was a while ago, anyone under the age of 25 might not make that association, surely?
I prefer Clarissa or Clarice (pron. to rhyme with Harris)

Hmm. I thought Steel Magnolias. For that reason I associate it with late middle aged women.

I agree that Clarissa is nicer and also that Clareeeeeeesse is indelibly linked with silence of the lambs for so many people! I can't hear it without hearing him, but perhaps that is because I have never known any other 'Clarisse'

I love the name Carice, like Clarice but prettier imho.

I think Clarissa is prettier.

I love Clarissa.

Clarice is lovely. Clarisse sounds French, and if you're not French then it just sounds a bit like you wish you were.

Hannibal in my head too. Sorry.

Katydive Mon 19-Nov-12 17:52:54

Yes sorry, reminds me of Hanibal Lecter too...

I can't say it,in my mind,without hearing it in the voice of Hannibal Lecter.

Silence of the lambs straight away....

I thought Clarice Cliff - unusual but not 'out there'.

I have a friend called Clarice. It's such a great name and I very quickly forgot the chianti link wink

What do you think of the name Clarisse? (clah-rees) It seems to have about 10 different spellings.
