Ok, so I've only just had our 2nd child (Arthur Henry) and I'm already pondering names for a third (don't worry we're thinking a 3 year gap is sensible).

Anyhow, I was thinking about slightly more unusual names and thought of this one. I do know a Clement who is only slightly older than me. I really like Clem as a nn which is what the child would be known as, I think (all supposing DH were to agree). What do folk think?

No, don't like it. Sorry.

I like Clement. It is my granddad's name.

Ooh quite like! Not sure I could be brave enough to use it myself but great name.

My DH likes Clement and I can see the appeal BUT it always makes me think 'inclement weather' and Clem makes me think of 'clammy hands'hmm

Hubby doesn't agree so that is probably just me! grin

I wanted Cledwyn nn Cled. DH said no.

"Not sure I could be brave enough to use it myself"

Why is bravery needed to name a child Clement confused?

I went to school with a Clement, who we called Clem. He was LOVELY! I really like the name.

I like Clementine too though it is one of those names I would put on a 'what name would you use if you were brave enough' thread.

Ermmmm <whispers> Clem is a slang word for testicle in my area blush

AllieW Fri 10-Dec-10 17:48:13

I'm from NE England and have never heard of Clem being used as slang for anything...

loola2shu Sat 11-Dec-10 21:19:01

Well it certainly is... well 'Clems' anyway

BabyValentine Sun 12-Dec-10 20:28:01

Just pointing out that it might not be a commonly known slang term, Loola.
